I remember when I was speaking with Dr. Tim prior to the surgery. He mentioned matter-of-factly that from now on whenever I go to the dentist I would need to take antibiotics one hour prior to the appointment. “Really?” I said, “For the rest of my life?”. “Yep!”, he said. “What about cleanings?” “Even Cleanings.” So today, I had a cleaning appointment clear on the other side of town and guess what I forgot? I COMPLETELY forgot about the antibiotics. But this dentist remembered me from my last visit. I had been there just prior to the surgery to get a confirmation that I had no infections in any teeth – a requirement for hip surgery. When I got there today, the first question they asked when I sat in the chair was, “Have you taken your antibiotics?”. So I have to try again next week. And you can bet that I won’t forget the antibiotics. Who’d a thunk the hip bone was connected to the jaw bone?
