Went to the periodontist today for a bit of oral surgery. We were originally going to schedule the appointment for the Monday before last because I wanted the thing done and out of the way. But then it occurred to me to ask:
"Hey, I've got gigs coming Friday and Sunday of that week. Will I be OK to sing?"
The periodontist said it should be fine. His assistant said I might want to put the surgery off 'til after.
Yay assistant. The anesthetic just wore off over here. It's actually not that bad, but of all the things I'd like to do right now, bursting into song is last on the list. And the handy "Instructions Following Surgery" sheet they gave me says it's common for discomfort to increase in three to five days.
Yay also to Ron the Drummer. Someone offered us a gig for the coming Saturday. He prudently turned it down on my behalf.
That's all the news for today. If anyone needs me, I'll be right here, not singing.
