Thanks for your kind words about the tooth. I'm feeling ok--the pain is very manageable with both Tylenol Extra Strength and Ibuprofin. I have taken the 'heavy duty' drug for the past two nights (hydrocone) but I'll stop that tonight. It still feels weird, as it will for a while, but the bone graft seems to be holding ok except for tiny annoying bits coming out randomly, which the internet says is perfectly normal.

Here is my day on Monday:
8am: TURN IN RETIREMENT PAPERWORK!
9am: Honors thesis defense
10am: Class field trip to the alpaca farm
12 noon: Drive to Corvallis
2pm: TIM'S DISSERTATION DEFENSE!
3pm: Drive home.
