And not any two witches! These two are very good witches who's motto is 'Have broom, will travel' and are good friends. Broomhilde lives in Missouri and Nag lives in Ohio. They keep in good touch with each other sending message back and forth across their brooms. They both love their black hats and talking about the oldest models of broomsticks. They both keep a watchful eye on me from a distance which is great when you are a kind and good witch. One of these witches was born on Halloween (yes I was very late) so what could be more fitting...
...than an orange and black witch's scissor fob for her birthday. I could never leave the other witch out of course so Nag had to have one too. Have you guessed the identity of these two witches? Broomhilde's blog is here and Nag's here.
Now before anyone thinks shock and horror that I called my mother Nag, it was her initials when my father was still alive. We all lovingly teased her about it and, well, what better name for a witch?
Just to update you on my tooth, the tooth came out very easily after the terror of being at the surgeon. He and his assistant were so kind to me and gave me all the time I needed being so afraid. The tooth slid out perhaps because of all the infection making it loose? I noticed that there was a little wire or needle sticking out of the tooth as he removed it but forgot afterwards to ask about it or even if I could have the tooth. That was not part of the root canal was it? My dentist was obviously correct when he first took me on as a patient and did full mouth xrays. He said he thought there was a needle or metal thread broken off during the root canal causing the infection. The dentist who did the root canal was awful! I am petrified now to have any dental work done.
Unfortunately, the stitches ripped within two hours of being home but the surgeon says it should be fine. I must admit as much as I love stitching myself, it was not something I needed to see so I closed my eyes when he started this part. I am very sore now in my jaw and have difficulty in swallowing but that is all normal and should pass in three days according to the booklet he gave me. So this week, I am taking it very easy and sitting on the couch stitching. I am glad that part is behind me now and will see my dentist this month to have a bridge made.
Thanks to you all for your kind thoughts and prayers!
