So….last Monday I surprised my lil guy with an advanced screening date to see #IronMan3. (far left pic). By Wednesday evening, he had collided with a bookshelf. My lil guy was screaming in pain after he tripped and fell face first into a wooden bookshelf. We iced his mouth and gums and finally he calmed down for bed. The next morning he looked like one of the “who’s” from Whoville (think of the Grinch).
We were shocked to see how badly he had swelled and made an emergency visit to the dentist office. (middle pic) Although our lil guy was black and blue underneath, he still donned a smile. Unfortunately after x-rays the dentist said he would need both front teeth pulled because they had been pushed back in the fall and were preventing him from closing his mouth all the way. 🙁 My poor lil guy! He was surprisingly brave for 5 years old. Thank goodness these were baby teeth and his adult teeth will push through in the next year. Almost all swelling has gone down a week later and his gums are turning back to a normal pink color. (far right pic) What a scare and lesson for everyone! Let’s pray all the rest of his baby teeth come out naturally!
Okay so not such a “wordless” Wednesday today! 😉
