Apparently the doctor was understating things juuuuust a bit. After waiting a half hour for the surgery to be scheduled, I find out that no, this is fast-from-everything-even-liquids-for-8-w
On a happier note, I got my last bit of major dentistry done: a crown. I am so happy with my dentist! He's a nice guy, he does good work, actually spends more time with you than his assistant does, and he's reasonably priced. Yay!
