During this time of not knowing how this all will turn out
I had to do a couple things that were risky
and I thought long and hard about.
The first was when my front tooth felt different
and it was actually loose!
OBOY – I was in Florida and I thought just get through this
get home and take care of it there.
Then we got home- I made the appointment
and COVID 19 happened!
So I canceled and waited it out!
Then it happened – it broke off – it was a crown –
but I had a gap right in the front!
Now – I had no choice – before it got infected –
I had to go to the dentist – so I made my appointment on line.
They would only do emergency’s.
I was worried – but I went in – they were the only people there
the husband and wife dental team.
He drilled it out – the post – and put in the temp.
No shots – there was no root.
But I would have to be careful and go back
when the crown came in!
That took place over several weeks and it all came out good.
I have my new crown – they were very professional
and there were no other patients there
and they wore gowns – masks – shields – gloves
and stayed away from me when not working on my mouth!
The next thing was the car – I have maintained it right on schedule
for seven years – and it now has 122,000 miles.
I needed a oil change
the last time was back in January just before we left for Florida.
I already was over the mileage and we had driven
a lot of miles while we were in Florida.
So – I made the appointment
and in I went – hardly anyone there!
I waited all by myself
They had put distance between all the seats
and no one was in there.
I got the oil change – replaced a bulb and was on my way!
Yesterday I saw my doctor – by phone!
I now have this app where you go into her office portal
and you can see and talk to her!
Since my heart attack almost seven years ago
I see my two doctors every six months and the one every twelve months.
That part was easy – but they have to draw blood every six months.
So – today I go to the office – where they have one person at a time.
They check your temp. plus she could see me yesterday.
I am feeling good , no head ache – cough – pink eye –
Then – I must wear a mask –
they take me right in – draw the blood and I leave
as quick as possible.
God bless these front line people!
So – during all these I had to make choices
I am healthy – have not taken the FLU shot in 15 years!
I take my Juice Plus and Omegas
I drink water all day – no dairy – very little sugars –
my one vice is coffee with almond cream.
However I am doing a 16 hour shred – fast
I do not eat for 16 hours after my dinner.
And I can have no coffee so I am having a cup of tea in the morning.
