Not Again!

Jr. has been complaining of a toothache for about a week now and we've given her Motrin and put Oragel on it but I couldn't see what was wrong.

Yesterday I was sitting down and she came over to get the medicine and suddenly I could see the problem, a big HOLE in 2 molars (the back of one, front of the other). This morning I called the dentist our pediatrician recommenced for George and they got Jr. in at 10:30.

There were 2 choices have them pulled and a spacer put in later or do a pulpectomy and have them capped. Two hours later she had 2 less teeth, I chose option 1. Afterwards I consoled her with a new movie, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese from KFC and Daddy's cozy blanket on the couch. We have checkup appointments for all 3 in the coming weeks. I'm going to be broke. *sigh*

I'm sooooo sorry! I had a couple of kids with lousy baby teeth and it wasn't fun for anyone. Give Jr a big hug from Grandma OK?
