The Toothache Week

You know the phrase "when it rains, it pours"? Well, we had a week like that mouth-wise :) Everleigh is in the process of breaking out her 5th and 6th teeth up by her front uppers. She's been really slow to get her teeth (1st 2 at 10 months, 2nd 2 at 12 months....then nothing but acting cranky til now). But we can see them and they are slowly but surely poking through the gums. Yay! But also ouchy.

Meanwhile, I somehow broke a tooth eating a breadstick this week and had to get an emergency temporary filling, which will be replaced with a crown later this week. Blech.

Also, poor Scott had a recent dental procedure not work out, and has been informed he now needs a root canal this week. In the meantime, he's been on antibiotics and pain pills and is still in crazy amounts of pain. He compared the pain to giving birth, but I have a hard time going with him on that ;) Maybe being shot in the jaw and having to wait to have the bullet removed for a week?

So....that's what we've been up to! Good thing we have dental insurance and lots of oragel.

I'll let you know how our post-crown and root canal and teething week goes. In the meantime, we're trying to take it easy on ourselves with some snuggle time and old movies.
