teeth and the er
so last night we went to the store to get some milk and bananas and what not. andrew decided it would be a good idea to run away. so i'm following him all over the store and he gets trapped in between me and derek so he starts to dart down another aisle and he falls. suddenly derek starts moving faster and then i get worried. andrew was bleeding out of his mouth. the workers were all nice and it doesn't seem that he slipped on anything except his own feet. so we took him to see nana and she said his bottom left eyetooth looked like it might by broken at the root or something. so i called the emergency room and talked to the nurse and she said that we should bring him in. we went and they checked him out and said to give him motrin for the pain and then gave him a prescription for amoxycillin so that it doesn't get infected. now he has a doctor appointment tomorrow morning at nine in carson city with a pediatric dentist and we'll see how he does. i think another tooth may have a cavity so i hope that they can put a filling or something in it. i really want andrew to see a dentist anyway and i think i should get emmy in for a check up too. it was just really painfull for him and we all felt bad for him. he's so young and doesn't understand why his mouth hurts. the doctor at the hospital said it was okay if andrew pulls at the tooth and that it will probably just fall out. he said if the tooth had been a permanent one rather than a baby one then they would be more concerned. i'm just glad that i happened to have children's motrin in my cabinet at home and didn't have to go to the store again last night. after we left the er we went back to nana's house and picked up emmy. she stayed there with nana and grampa and auntie heather. andrew was asleep in the car so i stayed outside with him and derek went in to get emmy and he said that when he took the blanket off of her she woke up and asked if andrew was okay. doesn't that just make your heart melt? derek said it was so sweet.
