It sure was hell while I was going through it, and all the novocaine didn't wear off until late afternoon. I came home starving and ate two large bananas with some coffee, but other than that I haven't eaten anything else today. I'm treating myself to a beer right now and it's going down really well! I have at least two more visits to go, and they will be about as bad as this one. The dentist did fillings on the right side, both top and bottom. You can imagine how much novocaine that required. He will do the same on the left side in about a week or so. I made a mistake a couple of years ago of switching to a non-fluoridated toothpaste, as I believe fluoride is a poisonous substance. I guess you'd have to have a large dose to become immediately poisoned, but I wonder what the effects are over time. Evidently I made a big mistake. My dentist is very good and does an excellent job of numbing the area he will be working on, but it's stressful as it wears off.
Rocky has been pretty good all day, for which I am grateful. I don't know how far my patience would have stretched if he was in a mischevious mood.
The tomato seeds I planted are looking very good. I thinned most of them today, keeping the most healthy shoot in each cup. I move them in and out each day - watering them outside and letting them catch the sun, then bringing them back inside when the sun goes over the house to the front side. Now I need to get outside and pull weeds out of the beds I want to plant tomatoes in. I keep checking the pea plants and have found several immature pods - they are hard to find but I hope it will be easier when they mature. I've eaten a couple of them right off the plant.
I hope I can sleep well tonight and get some much needed rest.
Take care, and stay well.
