Dental Appointment


Kendall had a dental appointment today. She did remarkably well. Oddly enough, she doesn't have any oral aversions. She didn't even gag when they put fluoride on her teeth. They said to keep doing what we're doing because her teeth look great (ha! I brush them once a day in the bathtub for all of 3 seconds!)


He said the grinding should stop soon since she's almost finished cutting 4 eye teeth. And actually, the grinding can be a good thing for her at this point. Don't quite understand that. But whatever.
Her weird thrashing movements are still around. I can't seem to catch them on video. I'll keep trying though. I think its pretty important we figure out what it means.
I'm doing a little better today than yesterday. Both our nurses were sick last week, so I didn't have any breaks. I quickly discovered how important that has become to my mental state. Just getting out for a quick jog, going to the gym, or shopping during the day while she's sleeping makes a huge difference for me. I don't know how moms do it with younger children and a special needs child. My hands are full with 2 dogs, a healthy 9 year old and Kendall.
We are eagerly awaiting our Endocrine appointment this week. We have lots of questions and hope to resolve her fluctuating blood sugars.
Til then...

Horray for one good appointment, eh? We take what we can get, I guess. Faith hates the dentist...

I'm glad I'm not the only one not brushing their kids teeth 2x a day. I keep telling myself she's on the ketogenic diet and gets hardly any sugar, so what is the harm?
