Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 325

The morning started with two phone calls – one from the endodontist to tell me that they were running early and I was welcome to come in ahead of time if I wanted, and the other from the county confirming my COVID-19 vaccination appointment for this afternoon.

I did manage to arrive at the endodontist 90 seconds early and spent the next 15 minutes filling out forms. Luckily, I have all my medication information on my phone. After that, they took a 3D scan of my mouth and had me sit in the chair. The endodontist looked at the scan, poked around in my mouth for a minute, and gave me the bad news: I didn’t need a root canal. Instead, I’d need to have the tooth extracted – I’d lost too much of the bone that supports it, and there was no way to do a reconstruction. She sent the info to my regular dentist, and I’m waiting to hear from them.

We did a better job of arriving early for our vaccinations – we were not alone. I think there were more people in line than I’ve seen in one place for 325 days.

The line moved smoothly. There were a few hidden queues once we got into the building, but not as many as a typical Disneyland ride, and in about an hour, we had received our first doses of the Moderna vaccine and been scheduled for round 2 on March 16. We’ll be ready!

One thought on “Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 325

  1. Also interesting. Mark said he had virtually no line to speak of, when he got his vaccination. AND…that was despite showing up 12 hours EARLY!!! (8:45 AM instead of 8:45 PM.)
