Post Pennsic & Life Update pt 1
JR & I had an absolute blast. Getting there was a bit sketchy as horrendous thunderstorms forced us to get a motel room halfway through PA (we had come from Long Island, NY). JR is slowly acclimating into being a medievalist, as I suspected. And has decided, for now, on a Norman persona.
My appeal for the partial denture was denied yet again. I called them & was finally informed why. The insurance was going on x-rays that were taken back in March, mid root canal procedure. Of course they would think more dental work needed to be completed. So I went in for a new set of x-rays & a cleaning. While there, the hygienist called in the head dentist. He told me that in the 3 months between the 2 sets of x-rays I have lost 30% of the bone density in my lower jaw. And having a partial denture is just delaying the inevitable. His diagnosis is that all 4 the remaining teeth need to be extracted for a full lower denture. The first 2 will be done October 5th & the last 2 on October 10th.
The day we returned, my mom & niece Amanda announced that we are all going to Barleycorn over Labor Day weekend. It was a big to do as it was the last event for our Viceroy & Vicerenne. And new Vicerenne's were stepping up. What I did not know is that I was called up in front of the King & Queen of the East Kingdom & was made a Lady of the court. Meaning I can use a personal coat of arms. I got a fancy scroll & everything. LOL
I had my appointment with my ENT. The diagnosis for this is I have a very enlarged blood vessel on the inside of my nose. It is also slightly deviated to the left & my turbinates on both sides are enlarged. I had a nosebleed on the Saturday, so he cauterized the right nostril for a 3rd time. Everything seemed to be going well on until Friday, the scab lifted early & tore a larger hole in the blood vessel. I went immediately back to the ENT and they re-cauterized it & added some support mesh as well. I now have to carry Afrin nasal spray & cotton balls with my in case of another nosebleed. As of this post I am 3-4 days in & no re-occurrences.
Some good news for JR. Angela has changed her FB relationship status to "Single" and has finally has moved out. She left some things, her full gel foam mattress & her mother's hospital bed. We thought it was removed when her mother left. But we now know that Angela had covered it with boxes. We are still looking for a smaller place. But now there is no immediate rush to do so.
