This is just a quick post to thank everyone for all the kind thoughts and wishes.
The tooth (a molar) was pulled before I was really aware of it. With a local anesthetic the worst part was the sound of crunching.
Right now I have expected swelling which makes me look as though I have a large orange stuck in my mouth. I'm not feeling much inclination to get into my studio but I am coming up with some ideas for future work.
I am down to Tylenol for pain so things are going reasonably well there.
I'll do another posting later in the week. Meanwhile, thank you all!
