On teeth and trucks

Eldest got a tooth pulled yesterday, a stubborn baby tooth that wasn't prepared to admit that the party was over....it was loose and she was getting infections under it...outta there...

The dentist here, as I have said is YOUNG...she is also up to date on everything and has all new equipment, even a digital x-ray machine which I LOVE...Eldest got a spray on topical anaesthetic, followed by a painless needle and then the extraction. Very quick, and we had a visit before hand. Total cost? Twenty Euros...that's about twenty-five to twenty-seven bucks. Who needs mail when you get this kind of dental work?

On another note, we are seriously thinking of moving our darling Oreneta up out of Florida to Ontario somewhere...for a whole bunch of reasons...we'll see if we put this together, but it may just happen. Then we could even see her next summer!!! Maybe maybe maybe even go sailing!!!!!!OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You would need to take a loan to get dental treatment here in the US! I wish our health care wasn't so expensive.

I love the pic of Oreneta, how exciting to be near her again!

Oreneta looks darling!

You must bring her up. She would be right at home on Lake Ontario :)

I concurr. If you go to TO every year, having the Oreneta there makes much more sense ;)

Carla, health care in the US, we try to avoid that like the PLAGUE, so to speak...

Trish, she spent a lot of time there till five years ago...

LP, I think so too....

mmichele, you're going to make me cry!

Kim, never had it, but eldest was enchanted.

Glad the extraction went well. I would highly recommend moving your sweety up to Ontario. With the economy going south and all the hurricanes, I would be worried for her safety, but then I am overprotective that way;-).

Crazy about the mail.
