As some of you know, I’ve been in a lot of pain the last few weeks over some stones in my saliva gland.

The doctor wants to remove the gland because it happened once before to me, only not quite as badly.

He also says it will be from the outside of my mouth, not the inside and there is a slight risk that a nerve controlling my lower lip could be affected, but it’s very rare.

So if that happens, you can start calling me the drooling woodworker.

Good luck! Did he at least take care of the immediate problem so you aren’t in pain?
