Jake’s mouth is three teeth lighter and my wallet is about $1,500 lighter (thanks, Obama*). Jacob had his wisdom teeth extracted this morning (he only had three of them). The procedure went smoothly and he’s doing as well as one would expect, so no complaints there.

*We used to have really good insurance (i.e. no deductible), but thanks to the “Affordable” Care Act, our premiums increased so much that we had to switch to a deductible plan (which, by the way, costs us a lot more than the no deductible plan used to). And when I say “our” I mean our office’s plan, in which we cover the full cost for our employees to have health insurance. The good news is that if Jacob needs any further procedures this year, his deductible has been met.
