I wish that I am always able to be there for my daughter
even though it’s tough to watch her fall. I love her truly, madly, deeply and I
know she is an amazing and capable young woman. Sometimes we all make mistakes—especially
in our youth. Brin fell in the bathroom on Saturday and knocked her front teeth
loose, not out, but definitely loose. It makes me cringe just thinking about
it. When I have nightmares it often involves loosing my teeth or my teeth being
loose, not the pain but something about the loss
of my teeth is overwhelming. Watching my child grow from mistakes and accidents is harder than experiencing them myself.
We’ve learned if the roots aren’t damaged teeth amazingly
can reseat themselves. We’ll know more after x-rays tomorrow and which ones
need to be capped from being chipped.
I’m using two
days of wishes to wish for good news from the dentist!
I’m wishing with you. I know the pain of falling face first and cracking your teeth.
Did I ever tell you about the time I fell face first on Natalie concrete garage floor. The only thing I can imagine is blacked out momentarily and fell from the top step (just two steps) face first on the ground. I actually came to with my lips literally on the ground. My nephew was there and asked if I was okay, he saw the whole thing, and I wasn’t. I cracked the enamel on my front tooth (which is aching now that I’m telling you the story), and my lip was split through. No time for a doctor I was off to a PAVCS Board retreat event. It was my first time EVER meeting Bonnie.
Anyway, my lip healed, my family laughs now as Ty demonstrates my fall forward, but my tooth is still cracked.
Ouch! I had not heard this story. And I can laugh now, too (it wasn’t me!). Why is your tooth STILL cracked??? Isn’t it super sensitive to hot and cold?
Jeff says at least it was a short fall. (ouch!)
