A few days ago, I posted a video of Wyatt walking and was pretty excited to show it off. Well about 3 hours after posting that video, Wyatt fell and smashed his teeth on the tile floor.
Well, that started a pretty crazy 24 hours. First to the emergency room – then to the emergency dentist – then today back to a paediatric dentist.
I can tell you that when the Paediatric dentist manhandled Wyatt’s teeth with his fingers and thumbs with no anesthetic, it killed me. We are hopeful everything will heal fine and his adult teeth will be ok.
Thank you for all your prayers and support during all this! I know all kids are going to get bumps and scrapes, Wyatt’s wasn’t serious compared to others. Just recently I had read a blog post that sent chills up my spine and all I thought was, it could be a lot worse! Thank God.
It’s amazing how personalities never turn off. Wyatt is a huge sanguine. As we rushed to the emergency and pulled in the driveway, I saw the emergency waiting area was packed. It was obviously hours and hours wait. But I thought with all the blood all over Wyatt we should be whisked past everyone and seen right away. Well as soon as we walked into the emergency room, everyone looked at us to see who was the new meat on the table (that is the triage line), Wyatt broke into a huge smile!!!! As if to say “HEY EVERYBODY!! I am here let the party begin!!”
Well I thought, that’s not going to help us see a doctor any quicker! It was short lived and soon he was crying again and we were seen quickly. Thankfully.
Meanwhile, against my better judgement, I am going to reinforce a stereotype that many Americans have about Canada. In New Brunswick they have received quite a bit of snow this year.
My friend and LIFE business partner, Joce Dionne uses his time during the day to build and maintain a hockey rink in his yard. (Is that 2 sterotypes now? Lots of snow and every Canadian has a outdoor rink in his backyard?)
Here is a picture of him walking with his super cute son Kaleb from the rink to his house…. in the snow.
