Back in Business

November 7th, 2013 at 08:46 am

I caught a later train this morning so I could go to Lost & Found when it opened at 8. It cost me another $4.25 to get to the downtown station. But I got my pass! I'm so grateful to the unknown person who turned it in. From now on the pass doesn't leave my grubby paws. I will show it to the conductor, and then it goes back in my bag.

Since I was driving yesterday I made a stop at Goodwill. I volunteered to buy forks for the break room -- we have every other kind of silverware, but the forks have disappeared! I only found four; they were only .10 apiece. I also found two pairs of shorts for my granddaughter and a pair of pants for my grandson, as well as a knitted scarf for me -- which I wore this morning! Altogether I spent $8. Since it was Senior Citizen Day, I got a 15% discount.

I talked to my Florida son last night, trying to make plans about the memorial service. He has to have a root canal, and was quoted a price of $2,500! I've never had one, but that seems high. He was wondering if he should get a second opinion, but hates to spend the money for another appointment with a new dentist -- I assume the new dentist would have to take X-rays? I didn't know what to tell him. It does seem like it might be a lot of cost with a strong possibility that the second dentist will simply agree with the first.

The memorial service will be on November 20, and I'm tentatively planning to take off the 19th through the following Sunday. Unfortunately, there is a strong chance that my DIL and granddaughter will be in Colorado at that time. Still, I will get to visit with my son, as well as other family.

My cold is still making my head fuzzy. I'm coughing and not sleeping well. I'm ready to be done with this.

    Hope you overcome that cold soon, interrupted sleep delays getting well.
    Would it help DS to call the Florida Dental Association to ask what cost to anticipate for a root canal?

    Good News on the pass!!!

  3. PNW Mom Says:

    Glad you got your pass back!

  4. LuckyRobin Says:

    Yeah, that's about right on the root canal. Oral surgery can be very expensive. Glad you got your train pass back from the lost and found.

  5. Carol Says:

    That seems very high unless it includes the crown you have to get after the root canal. Second opinion might be well worth it. He ought to be able to bring first films to second dentist.

  6. Carol Says:

    Another idea. Could he call for quotes on root canals? Good luck to him..

    I looked around a little on the internet and it looks like root canals on molars are the most expensive -- and his is a molar. And I think he does have to get a crown -- hopefully that is included.

    That sounds close to what it cost me when I had a root canal 5? years ago - it did include the cost of the crown.
