No gum stitching today after all. The dentist re-thought last night and decided to do a more intense procedure, involving taking tissue from another part of my mouth. He said it has post-operative consequences, that it is painful, uncomfortable, difficult, for a while. I don't know what all that means. I am feeling a little tense about this and trying to talk myself down, not worry unnecessarily, not let it get to me.

Because they are just doing impressions today, I'll go to work, get some hours in. I was prepared for staying home so in a way this is a letdown. But I should be able to get some things done and that will feel good.
