I haven't shared that much about Jing's needs
other than her heart~
but she has some pretty major dental issues.
Most all of her molars have really dark cavities
and some in between her teeth.
I had know all along we would need to address this
but not until surgery and recovery was behind us.
In the last few weeks,
she has started to wince just a little when I brush
so guessed it was time to make a dental visit.
I searched online to find a pediatric dentist
affiliated with Egleston~
there were a lot so I just picked one.
Mustard Seed Pediatric Denistry
Because of her TOF,
I had to give her an antibiotic one hour before her appt.
This is the face she gave me
when I had to force her to take it~
remember she hates taking medicine!!!
The office was VERY fun and kid friendly...
both girls liked the waiting area...
BUT moving to the back was a different story.
This was the first time EK had ever had xrays taken
of her teeth and in hindsight...
that is a major bad on my part.
I should have had our other dentist do this way before now
but I guess I just thought they would
as a result she has some dental work that has to be done too.
But this post is about Jing...
she got pretty upset because EK was crying
and couldn't understand why.
She was finally able to calm down
while watching EK's exam...
And EK agreed that maybe it wasn't all that bad...
Dr. Kim had me sit with Jing
so I handed my camera off to my little assistant EK.
I think she did a pretty awesome job!!!
I took this one...
Jing has about 8 cavities that they could see
with no xrays.
She will have to go to Egleston for her dental work
because they have to put her to sleep...
I won't lie~ that scares me but I know
she will do great just like she did with her heart.
They were both happy when Dr. Kim
gave them a token for the Surprise Tower.
All in all it was a good visit
mainly because they both walked out happy and smiling
BUT once again we have some major appts
ahead of us.
I've already been praying it will all go
just as God has planned
and He will give this mama strength!!!
PS... Words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated!!!
