Sai’s Eventful Few Days

Sai had an eventful few days.

It started Saturday. Joe was helping the boys brush their teeth Saturday morning. Sai’s loose tooth would lay flat. Joe told him that they should just pull it. So Sai tried twice but couldn’t quite get it out. So Joe tried. Well, Joe said that the tooth basically just fell out. Sai was pretty excited.

I had to finish his tooth pillow Saturday so he could use it for the tooth fairy. Lucky kid got $1 from the tooth fairy. I remember just getting quarters. Guess inflation has hit the tooth fairy as well! šŸ˜‰

This morning Sai went back to the dentist for his frenectomy. I think I was more nervous than him. First the assistants numbed his gums with some topical stuff. (Here he is letting that work and watching cartoons.)

Then he got the numbing shot. He did pretty well. The assistants did it and they were distracting him by talking about the cartoon (which Sai was glued to). I saw his feet jerk a little so I know he was feeling it! (Here he is getting the shot.)

Then we waited for the dentist. While we were sitting there Sai was trying to tell me how his mouth felt because it felt weird. He said that it felt “solid”. Solid? I don’t know. His lip got big and huge, though.

About 10 minutes later the dentist came in and did the procedure. It took less than two minutes. It was so fast that I didn’t get a picture.

When we were done we went to the grocery store to buy him some Tylenol (we were out at home). Then I took him to the baby sitter’s house. I tried taking a picture but the lighting wasn’t good and all the pictures were taken with my phone so not the best quality. And his lip was pretty fat so it was hard to get it out of the way. His gums look red and like there is dried blood on it. I’m sure it will look better in a few days.

I told him that tonight we would go buy him a toy. He was a brave kid!

    Wow! he looks great. Glad the tooth came out so easily – and I am sure he loved the money. The procedure looks like it was okay. Hopefully he will heal quickly with little pain.
