My new trolley arrived yesterday, I'm planning to get tonight's support worker to assemble it - or at least get started.

So I'm turning over in my head to make sure I have all the bits and pieces needed for the assembly and eventually my brain points out the power board is missing.

After poking through my emails I realised that I spent so long talking about it I forgot to actually ORDER the bloody thing.


It's ordered now :)

Life's like that, dear penguin! Yesterday I bought some watercress to put in my stir-fry; later last night I cooked and ate the stir-fry, and then remember I hadn't added the watercress!

(P.S. - On Monday, the prosthodontist began the process of making my final denture. It probably won't be ready until the end of November, after Thanksgiving, though. Considering that I fell and smashed my face on September 2, 2015, I think I have a right to be impatient!)

The only reason mine took so long is because almost all my upper teeth were already destroyed by neglect; the four front teeth had been "capped", so they were working as they should. But when I fell, I broke those four off at the gum line. So it wasn't just a matter of repairing the ones I broke - I had to have te remaining fragments of all my upper teeth surgically extracted, and then have bone grafts put in to strengthen the upper jaw for the implants. The bone grafts, and my gums, had to heal for four months before the surgeon would install the implants. Then the implants had to heal for another four months, as the bone grew tightly around them (bone naturally bonds to titanium - the bond is actually stronger than natural teeth). And before any of this could happen, it took me several months to find a team of a surgeon and a prosthodontist who could do this kind of work, and also to figure out how on earth I was going to pay for it! But last week, the surgeon proclaimed me healed enough to get the final denture made, and the process started on Monday.

Yours just sounds like normal tooth decay, and current technology has all sorts of ways of repairing teeth that didn't exist even five years ago. I hope they get around to you quickly, and I hope they're up on the latest improvements!
