  Health Care.
In the interest of full disclosure, it was not a filling I lost the other day but a chuck of built up tartar.

I actually got to see the dentist today and he said it was a good thing to lose, but a bad thing that it was so built up. He did say I had one tooth that did need filling and he would put me on the list for both a cleaning and the filling. They are two separate lists and he was not able to give me any sense of when either of the two things would happen.

I was also taken out into the general population area today and had my sinuses x-rayed. Since I already got the decongestants, I am not sure if I will get to see a doctor or not. I might try dropping a note to the Nurse Administrator to see if she can check into why we do not have filters on out intake vent.

I finally went through a bunch of my clippings and sent a very fat envelope out to Mom and Dad last night.

I am feeling so much more alive with the less swollen sinuses that I will hopefully be able to make a real dent in the backlog of my to-do pile. I am trying gallantly to minimize the New York Times backlog and managed to read Thursday's (July 21) paper today, and have yet to receive last Sunday's paper.

I did receive Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday today. That means I should have twelve papers to read. That is not counting the fact that I have 'saved' all the Book Reviews, Week in Reviews and Magazine sections. Okay so I am a pack rat. We will not even discuss the six or more manila envelopes of my clippings. As I said hopefully some serious locker cleaning cam occur this weekend.

I got on the scale yesterday and am still over 200 pounds. 202 to be exact. Guess I am eating enough. Rats, I was looking forward to breaking into the 100's.
