Surgery Update

I went to the surgeon today. He was not very pleased. My mouth on the right side is not healing properly. He said that due to the number of scar tissues in there, the blood supply is not able to go through and that part of the graft may not heal. He is not very hopeful, but he said that we can only wait. Sometimes, healing does occur. The worst case scenario will be that the grafted bone may detach and fall out.

He told me that he would not do another graft, as it would be a waste of money and could do me more harm. I had four teeth with bone deterioration. And just one is not doing well. So, all in all, it is not that drastic.

One good thing happened on the way from the surgeon, however. I was driving home and  saw a gaggle of geese hunting for food in the grass. Once again, I braved my fear of birds. I parked the car and went close to them to take their pictures. For those of you who don't know, geese are nasty buggers, and I was facing a gaggle of them. Nonetheless, I was fairly close to them, and they left me alone. Of course, it helped that I was using my 300mm zoom lens.

I took a lot of pictures, but this specimen was just so cooperative:

I did use my Nikon this time.
