Our Year in review

2019 Was a great year all around at Swords Orthodontics.

Here is a few of the highlights that have happened to us last year 2019..

Aesthetic dentistry awards.

In March we travelled to London for the aesthetic dentistry awards ceremony. It was held in the Landmark hotel which is a stunning setting as always.

My Broken Rib: Day 8

One week after the event.

I’d still know something was wrong with my rib cage, but it’s much better.

Several sneezes today, but it’s great to be alive.

I can tell you that thing about pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth to stop a sneeze doesn’t work for me.

 

Might have a little aside here about a famous rib fracture....

I was one of  "Dentists Who Tweet" at one stage – I’ve had to ease off twitter because I enjoy it too much, but while recuperating from the rib, I’d been noodling on it more than usual and was reminded of a recent anniversary of a famous rib fracture. One of the ...

My Broken Rib: Day 7

I’m still not sleeping on my side, but that’s not a huge problem. Another good night of sleep, and not too much problem getting out of bed.

I have been able to sneeze for the first time! Up to now, the process of sneezing seems to have inflated the lungs to a point where it becomes quite painful and when I expected it to become more painful until the sneeze happens, the urge to sneeze suddenly goes away. Today, my body went ahead and sneezed.

Still hurt amazingly nonetheless

Today was my last dose of Solpadeine at lunchtime. There are another 3 tablets of Vimovo to run – time will tell what it ...

My Broken Rib: Day 6

I can’t comfortably sleep on my side, but I have no great problems with that – I have had another good night of sleep.

I saw a short video message online today from Biff Byford, the lead singer of Saxon, one of my favourite bands. He’d had to have emergency heart surgery a few weeks ago and he’s just started posting videos about his recovery and the changes to the Saxon tour and his solo album etc. One of the first things he notes about his recovery was the day he could sleep on his side. He said it sounded trivial but it’s actually more significant than it sounds. It was ...

My Broken Rib: Day 5

Again, I had a good night's sleep. The main discomfort is from changing posture and twisting movements.

I decided to commit to cancelling my holiday.

I found the process was more complicated than I expected, but in fairness, Aer Lingus do try to give you a variety of options before completely cancelling (as my fare was not refundable).

Also, there was job I couldn't postpone further- I had to pick up my laundry and was dreading humping heavy bags in to the car. Bogdan was still in the practice on Friday afternoon and he decently offered to give me a lift down and helped me with the bags, but surprisingly, I found that ...
