Just thought I would update this post instead of starting a new one.
Did another trip to the dentist today with the kid. Once again he proved how much of a super trooper he is.
Even after all he went through last time with the 4 extractions he did not fight me at all about
going back. He was also super cooperative with the dentist and the assistant once again. This time around it was several fillings, a pulpectomy (baby root canal) and several crowns.
He cried a bit on the way home like last time and he didn't want to eat or drink anything until about
7 pm tonight (got out of the dentist at 3pm) but then he drank 3 glasses of tea and at a bowl of soup. By 8:30 he was out after giving him a 1/2 dose of children's ibuprofen since he was saying his mouth was hurting him a bit again.
One more round next week to repair the teeth on the left side (they did all the ones on the right today) and we are done....for a while...a long while I hope.
2 confirmed herniated lumbar discs. Spinal Arthritis. Spinal Stenosis, diabetic peripheral nueropathy.
