This kids takes YEARS off my life on an almost daily basis!! Today she was walking around with her bottle in the kitchen while I was fixing us lunch. Well she reached over to lean against this plastic stroage thing with wheels on it and it, of course, rolled away. She fell and hit her face on the botton of the cabinet. I scooped her up and her mouth was filled with blood! :eek: My first thought was the she knocked out one of her new precious teeth, but once I got her mouth rinsed out a bit, all her teeth appeared to be there. She wouldn't let me get a good look at the injury but her lip is a bit swollen now. I have her an ice cube inside her mesh feeder and she walked around sucking on that for a while as I finished lunch. Ugh! I swear that cost me 10 years off my life!!! How does anyone with kids manage to get old!?
I took her to a pediatric dentist because there is blood in the gumline of her top tooth that won't go away. Front and back, and it looks to me like the tooth got pushed in. The dentist gave her a cursory exam (she HATED him on site, so strange! She's never hated anyone like that.) and he said that she developed a blister and that it would likely heal on it's own in a few days. I know he's probably right, but still don't like it, and I wasn't really happy with how brief the exam was. Of course, I suppose it's disconcerting for a dentist to try to examine the gums of a screaming, squirming infant. . . I'll be keeping an eye on it. She doesn't seem bothered by it at all though. :shrug:
