There's Always a Boom

Ivanova was usually right, and this one was no exception.

Charlotte just face-planted on the tile floor in the kitchen, chipped her two front teeth, cut her lip, and may have been bleeding a bit from behind one of them.  She's not real keen on me rooting around in her mouth right now. 


I'm bummed.  She didn't get to have them for very long, and they're already chipped.  Now I need to find a pediatric dentist in my plan, because I'm sure they're sharp and need to be filed down.


Spoke to the pediatrician on call.  He thinks that if they were very loose, we'd know by now, since she's eaten some bread and been sucking on an ice cube.  On the other hand, they may very well still either die or discolor - we'll know over the next few days.  Or as Bob says "she can go through her childhood with a green tooth like her father."

She's got a couple of small cuts inside her upper lip where the teeth hit, and more worryingly, bleeding from the inside gum line - one of them is still weeping a little blood.  Bob tried to wiggle them, and he says they're not loose.  I checked a recent photo of her with a big open-mouthed grin, and I don't THINK they've been jammed up into the gums, but it's hard to tell because she won't hold still.  However, while I was at it, she DID manage to change my laptop wallpaper to a picture of her!

So I guess the next few days will tell.

Oh, and I haven't told you about her lazy eye yet, have I?  Ahhh...... parenthood....
