Remember on July 3, 2016 ?
When it went BACKWARDS back then ,and I had to be revived from a heart attack, this tooth has been crooked and stubborn.
This tooth has been a problem ever since. NOW….
it became loose in early June, and since then, it has been bothersome and obstinate. So, Tatum ASKED to go to the dentist to get this thing OUT!!!
Dr. B was her dentist today, and he decided it was time also.
She was given some laughing gas (upon me signing about 5 consent forms!?) Should I be worrying? I wasn’t laughing, and BTW, neither was Tot. She was still as a statue. Thank goodness for the movie Robots which played overhead.
Then they numbed her with bubble gum tooth gel.
I’m having flashbacks of my surgery and feeling sick to my stomach watching Tot go through this. Again, she is statuesque. (Srsly, she’s amazing)
And now…….the longest needle I’ve ever seen is going into her gums. I hope there’s a pillow on the ground, because I’m about to faint.
Just get on with it and get the tooth out.
Praise Jesus. It’s out, and my gauzy Tot is still frozen.
I’m so proud of her. She must lay there to soak up the bloody evidence. All this for a measly tooth.
Two down, 18 to go!
We went home and she put it under her pillow. What will the fairy bring this time?
(Apparently the dentist’s 10-year old son was in there also, and Dr. B said his son was not even 1/2 as brave as Tot. )
SO PROUD OF YOUR COURAGE!
