Today was a very happy day filled with some sadness!
I know you all have had days like that before.
The good first. . .Mom had a very good day! She felt much stronger. A couple of friends came over and even took her to lunch. She said that her bladder problem was even better today. She said it is not completely gone, but it was very encouraging to her. I think she will wait a little while longer before going to the Dr.
She even felt good enough to drive over this afternoon to see Julian. That was her first driving trip since before surgery!
She came over to see Julian because of the SAD part of the day. Today Julian was on the teeter totter at school and a boy jumped off and “bumped” him. He hit his mouth on this bar that is there to hold onto. It jammed all of his four front teeth up into his mouth and they splintered. He broke the bone there, too.
I rushed him to the dentist and they had to pull the four teeth out (what was left) and the splinters of bone. They sutured him up and now he is here resting with gauze in his mouth. He was truly a very brave little boy!! They won’t know how it affected his permanent teeth until they come in, which may not be for quite awhile. I am just thankful to God that it was only teeth and not something worse. I am glad I prayed for his safety today. It could have been worse!
I feel very sad because I mourn for his little smile full of teeth. It’s different when they fall out on their own – it’s cute. However, seeing the dentist pull them out ahead of time is NOT the same.
I have that song in my head “You take the good, you take the bad, you take it all and there you have the facts of life. The facts of life!” (I think that is how it went) So I have felt the facts of life today. God is still so good.
I will post pictures of his teeth if anyone is curious. Just didn’t want to gross anyone out, so I will have to have a request from you all.
The tooth fairy should have a hayday with four teeth tonight! Hee Hee.
