Larry woke up Saturday morning with a toothache and a swollen lip.  Nonetheless, trooper that he is, he worked the grill and was a great host while we had a few friends over for a cookout that afternoon.

Unfortunately, by evening the swelling had begun to squeeze his eye shut, so it was off to the ER.  Diagnosis:  broken tooth and an abscess.  They gave him some antibiotics and with the advice “get to a dentist Monday”, sent him on his way.

He muddled through Sunday as best he could (read: miserably), and spent the better part of yesterday at a variety of dental appointments, culminating with a round of general anesthesia and an extraction.  He’s at a follow-up appointment now, but is expecting to return to work tomorrow.

My poor boy.
