It only took about three hours; could have been worse. (People after me were told they might not get in-) I got my antibiotics, and there are no 'bits' left in my gum, according to the X-ray, so I'm pleased. I was a bit bemused that they put 'Male' on my notes, though. There was a little conference, and they said 'Don't worry, that happens sometimes' Crikey, and my hair's really long at the moment. I'm soooo weary now. It's joy to flake out.
