Fur & Feather & Tooth

 Pinned down by the 'Park 2'; never seen them before, apparently, neither had the Park Ranger!
What is it about mummy's lap?
But he was a bit concerned for 'his' ducks!

A visit to this park can only mean one thing...another visit to the dentist. Pain in the palate and the tooth that had root canal work done 2 years ago!
Seems there is an infection, (huzzah for antibiotics), and apparently I will have to have the whole thing drilled out, packed to clear any other 'yucky stuff' and then have to go to Wellingborough to see a 'specialist' who has the know how and equipment to see what's going on in high definition, so to speak. (About 15 times actual size). The 3(!) roots I have in this tooth have weeny little branches, almost invisible on a regular X-ray and this is where the infection is.
To say I am a bit apprehensive is a slight understatement. Not so much the work itself but the fact I have to Wellingborough, (never been), and a different dental surgery. But what is weird, is that the dentist was the original chap I saw here in Northampton, who has gone on to specialise. I went to him as he did call outs and when my mum was housebound he came to see her. At the time, I wasn't registered with a dentist, so it seemed a good move to go with him. I only saw him about once before he left and have been with Mr Q ever since.
I am beginning to think I should have a dental chair with my name on a brass plaque on, like at the theatre, I feel as though I have taken 'root' there!
Boom! Boom!


  1. Oh nooo! I sympathise with your aprehension. Hope it goes well and your tooth is mended for good this time. Those gorgeous kittys knew you needed a cuddle! xxx

  2. Oh dear, I would be anxious too. Hope it goes OK.
    The kitties are gorgeous! xxx

  3. You've stolen Polly Piglet! You're a brave soul, it'll be fine. If you can do Brum you'll be fine in Wellingborough. x

  4. Tooth ache is the worst keep taking those antibiotics!


  5. You can do Wellingborough. It's not as horrible as everyone makes out. Let me know when you come and I'll take you for a coffee, if your mouth is ok.


  6. Aw no! I really feel for you. Hope it all goes well and you finally get this sorted for once and for all! xx
