When they began to work on the tooth the remaing upper 1/4 on the other side of the filling fell apart, so I was left with good tooth just above the gum line. The dentist showed me with a hand mirror. Not pretty. They made a new tooth with some sort of dental material and now all it needs is a cap. That will be put on with in the next week or so. My tongue? It is healing. It still hurts to eat or talk, but that is getting better.
You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
