..fillings that is.
Two more fillings were done today and they are excellent. It was worse than Friday's appointment though. Much more drilling, which took well over an hour. But only one more to be done on Thursday and that will be it for the time being.
You will be pleased to learn that I wasn't subjected to a repeat performance of The Sound of Music today. The dentist asked me if I would like to listen to some music, and what kind of music I'd like. I said classical music would be nice. I felt this would be more relaxing.
"Oh good" he replied "I have quite a collection of classical music" and he got out a large collection of CDs. To be honest I just wanted to get on with the treatment. I hate all this waiting about. So I suggested he chose one. He told me he had a compilation of different classical pieces so suggested he played that. Fine by me.
I settled down in the chair, and had my injections to the accompaniment of Nessun Dorma. Wonderful...very relaxing. When the drilling started the music seemed to gather pace. There were an awful lot of loud marching-type tracks, and a couple of overtures thrown in for good measure....Tchaikovsky's 1812 and the William Tell overture. Much too frantic and did nothing to calm my nerves.
For my last appointment on Thursday, I will do what Janice suggested and take one of my own CDs.
I think a little bit of George Michael could be quite soothing.
