Dental update: repacked and antibiotics started.

Saw the dentist this afternoon. He repacked two of the extraction sites with absorbable packing dipped in some foul-tasting medicine with amazing topical numbing action. The rearmost extraction site is indeed infected, meriting a prescription for Keflex and a warning to stop taking it immediately if I have an adverse reaction. (Keflex may cause reactions in people allergic to cephalosporins or penicillin.)

Meanwhile, Laurel's school was visited by Molar Man today, so I've been hearing all about him, his girlfriend Ginger Vitis, his nemesis Bacteria Boy and the rest of their crew. Dental programs were never that, um, mascot-y? mascoted? when I was her age. (:
