Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, 18 “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death 19 and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”
Take a good look at that beautiful face... and teeth. Sigh... More on that later.
Lael and her snapchat because life's more fun when you live in the moment??? And she talks about me and my camera.
Of course, Lyric is the only one not willing to show some teeth.
Oh my! It's a miracle!
Stafan went with me and picked out his own Easter goodies.
My sister throws the kids a pool party for the kids every year. Lots of great snacks and indoor swimming.
My sister said it was not easy coming up with kid friendly, but she did!
This was one of the dares.
And the end of his beautiful teeth!! I left right after this. Mike, my sister and her husband stayed to watch the kids. I'm home just getting ready for a nice hot bath and then going to watch TV-by myself!!
Mike: "Well, Boone cracked his tooth. He was doing flips in the pool. I've called our dentist and his pediatric dentist. I'm waiting on a call back."
Hmmm... maybe it isn't that bad. Maybe I'm (I mean Boone is) going to get lucky and it'll be no big deal. We had already been through this one. Shepard had his two front teeth knocked out in China. But they didn't fix Shepard's in China, so we dealt with it when we got him. So I knew all about root canals, caps etc...
Sigh... It is a big deal! That isn't just a "cracked" tooth. Over half the tooth is gone for goodness sake! So, right now they are trying to save the nerves. Boone has to go back to the endodontist about once a month for several months. Boone's Uncle Mike brought him home, and Boone stayed with me for the night. We sat on my bed and watched TV.
Boone (while laying in my bed looking up at the ceiling): "Is this what you and Dad do?"
(short pause--too short for me to come up with an answer to such a loaded question; then again, maybe it was a rhetorical question...)
Boone: "Mom do you think I should break up with my girlfriend?"
Me: "Do you like her? You're kind of young."
Boone: "She is poor."
Me: "She isn't the only one."
The dentist had us wait until morning to bring him since there was no blood and he wasn't in much pain.
Well, he is going to need an endodontist. What is an endodontist, you ask? Someone you go to when the dentist can't fix it.
The endodontist told me Boone needs a pulpotomy. A pulpotowhat? Pulpotomy is the clinical term for the removal of the painful nerve tissue at the top of the root canal system. It is performed with primary teeth as a final treatment of the nerve. In adult teeth it is referred to as a partial root canal and is usually provided during an urgent care appointment to relieve pain.
And at the endodontist getting more X-Rays.
Right now they are trying to save the nerves. Boone has to go back to the endodontist about once a month for several months.
On the way home from the hotel party Boone's Uncle said his conversation with Boone went like this:
Boone: "So how did you and Aunt Becki meet?"
Uncle Mike: "Well, I saw her and tried to talk to her, but she wouldn't talk. I kept trying and eventually she talked to me."
Boone: "Do you know how to make girls like you?"
Uncle Mike: "How?"
Boone: "You act crazy. Girls like that."
News flash Boone. That only works if you're really cute and clever. But then again, that's Boone.
