So, the ortho appt went well -- he's back to work as usual and has a few exercises that he has to do. He'll go back in 3 weeks to make sure the tendons and ligaments are tightening back up and that there's no permanent damage.
As for the dentist -- the mold was made and NOT ONE of the teeth came out in it! Bummer! Now we have to pay $98 each for the 7 teeth to be pulled in the next month, as well as pay for the partial. Yeehaw! Now we just have to wait for them to call us to say the partial has been made and is ready. Waiting, waiting . . .
