On the way to the gym we made a list of everything that was happening today. Literally 7 things we had to do/be at today. Lately our whole lives have felt like this but today I actually felt anxious, nervous, clammy hands, the works. I just wasn't sure we could get it all done.
They decide to see her instead of sending her to the ER and I start crying like a baby in the waiting area. We had childcare lined up this morning because we had a showing at 10am and needed to get the house ready and have the kids out of the house. I call my sister April in a panic and still sobbing to log into facebook for me to message the babysitter and let her know we wouldn't be there. I didn't have her number and I have a dumb phone.
Pediatrician says he doesn't think Cora's teeth are affected but we could see a pediatric dentist if we thought we needed to. I didn't look much but I did look enough to see blood pooling in her gums behind one of her two front teeth so a visit to the dentist should happen.
Rob was helping a friend load his moving truck so I go alone with 3 kids to the dentist. They take x-rays of her teeth and dentist comes in. They don't see anything on the x-rays but the two front teeth are "mobile." I have to ask if this means loose and he says yes but not bad.
One of the worst parts is that Cora can't have her paci anymore. Every time she sucks it moves those teeth and the tissue around them and causes it to bleed again. :(
Bedtime went better than I expected it to. I think it helped that she didn't get a nap today. I think God was sovereign in this and am thankful that He works my schedule for good even when I think it's very bad. Just another example of His ways being higher than ours and another opportunity to trust Him. She cried twice. Once we let her cry for 10 minutes then I went in and rocked her. She was asleep in just a few minutes. It was so sweet to get to rock my big baby to sleep. She has gotten up once just now at 11pm. We gave her tylenol, I sang her a song and she's back to bed with no crying. I've prayed for months for a smooth, easy transition for Cora from the paci when the time comes. I'm so thankful for this answered prayer so far.
