Another tooth gone.

I wrote this post last night (Wednesday night) but fell asleep while typing.  So, I couldn't finish it.  Better late than never, right?

Wednesday Night

Two quick things tonight...

One.  I sent Harlie to school on Monday, Tuesday and today.  But, today was iffy.  She needed oxygen while she slept last night and tonight.  So, I picked her up early and took her to her pediatrician.  Her primary doc wasn't there, so we saw Dr. S.  Which I think worked out really well because she could provide some fresh eyes on the situation.  Harlie was especially green today (her secretions) so Dr. S. got a good look at what we've been dealing with.  And she thinks it's a sinus infection.  She put her on Augmentin for 10 days, but might go for a 21-day treatment.  Time will tell.  So, cross your fingers, say a prayer, do a good luck dance.... please oh please let this just be a sinus infection and let us kick it out once and for all.

Two.  Cooper accidentally knocked out one of Harlie's teeth today.  We were leaving swim practice for Murphy and Harlie and Cooper were climbing into the car.  She went in first, but she's so darn slow!  So Cooper just crawled on top of her to get to his seat.  I think he hit her with his shoe or his toy.

I was chatting with a friend and so I didn't see it happen.  And since Harlie can't make a lot of noise - I had no idea she was in that much pain.  There was no shrill cry that you know means pain.  I finally realized that she was crying and looked in the car to see her already in her seat.  So I asked her what was wrong and she looked at me and then I saw her mouth full of blood.  Ugh.  I cannot imagine how that must have felt.  This was not a tooth that was ready to come out.  One second you're fine, the next someone just kicked your tooth out.   Donna found her tooth on the floor.  It was a baby one, thank Heavens.

This makes the 5th tooth she's lost due to some sort of trauma (the other four were due to surgeries).  I swear sometimes that girl just cannot catch a break!

I sure hope the Tooth Fairy gives extra special surprises for that kind of tooth loss!

Oh no! I'm sorry. Maybe it was loose and you didn't know. Sometimes it can happen fast. I'd hate to think Cooper hit her hard enough to knock out a firmly planted tooth.
