D-Day

D as in Dentist.

Judith has her dentist appointment today with the pediatric dentist. At least my mom is here to help. I'm not as nervous about this as I was about Gideon's surgery, but it will still be a difficult day. Judith HATES the dentist. But all 4 of her back molars are rotten to kingdom come. They will need to be fixed or pulled or something. No matter what happens, it won't be pretty, and I'm sure Judith will end up being even more afraid of the dentist than she already is. She will probably need to be sedated, but we'll see. Today is just the check-up, then the solution will be discussed and determined. I feel so bad that her teeth are so terrible. It runs in the family though. Honestly I think I'm more anxious about the bill. We can't really afford this right now, but we don't really have a choice.

Ugh I know how you feel. Elliott has awful teeth but it comes from my side of the family.
I know we need to take him. I need to just stop putting it off. :(

Totally feel your pain on this. Luke has a lot of dental work we are getting done over 5 visits. It was supposed to be 4, but he majorly freaked out during the first visit and were only able to do one of the two scheduled procedures. He is so afraid of shots in the mouth, and i don't blame him. He has to spend the entire visit hooked up to nitrous oxide, which he refers to as 'Brave Gas'. I am thinking of little Judith. Hope all goes better than expected!
