The very first night we had SJ in China,
we knew she had major dental issues.
Could be hereditary, cardiac related, poor hygiene
probably a little of each.
We also knew once we had the go ahead from her cardiologist,
we would pursue the dental work.
Today was the day
and we left home around 4am.
The littles slept a little on the way
and we made it in plenty of time for our 6am check in.
SJ was all smiles with her doll right by her side. :)
So was her big sister...
A little before 8,
I was allowed to give her the sleepy medicine
and they rolled her away whimpering just a bit.
It NEVER gets any easier!!!
While in the waiting area,
two very funny clowns we met when SJ had heart surgery
came by to share smiles and bubbles.
EK LOVED them
from a distance.
SJ came back to us a little hysterical
but quickly quietened down when they allowed me to pick her up.
She was able to go back to sleep
and pretty much slept the whole way home.
When we were home a couple of hours,
we asked to see inside SJ's mouth and she wanted to see as well.
Believe me when I say...
I can't BELIEVE our sweet baby had
7 crowns, 5 major fillings with restorations,
and a root canal between her front two teeth.
Scott and I both said we would still be in the hospital.
We have pretty much spent the afternoon
on the sofa watching movies.
When I walked away for a minute,
she would say, "I need you my mommy".
She has been the most brave and cooperative little girl in the world.
Just when you think she can't get any sweeter...
she does, and is, and always will be. :)
SO thankful this is all said and done~
hopefully all the surgery needed for a VERY long time!!!
Giving Him all the glory!!!
