As I mentioned previously, our own Editor Gwen came down with an infected tooth, and thanks to all of you, we were able to come up with the money to send her to the dentist in the neighboring muncipality.
I am glad and happy that I went to the dentist and had the procedure done. The dentist pulled out my wisdom tooth, and did some fillings to two teeth.
And afterward, there was a surprise, when the dentist took off her facemask!
I was surprised that the dentist is my classmate from when I was in high school. She didn't recognize me at first until she asked my name and knew that I was her classmate. After the procedure, we talked. She is surprised too that I am what I am now.
However, there is also bad news to report. The next day, Editor Gwen was riding on a form of public transit known as a 'trike' when two armed men robbed all the passengers. Unfortunately, the robbers got away with a gold necklace (worth about $200 USD) that the family was planning to pawn to pay her mother's medical bills. However, she was able to conceal her cell phone. She said the experience was quite traumatizing.
But looking on the bright side, she says:
Thank God there is no more pain now. Thank you so much to all of you and for continuing to support TMP. I really love my job and TMP and all of you guys. Thank you so much!
