It’s taken me a bit to write this, due to it was such an experience that really rocked this poor mama and little boy. Last Friday we headed to the dentist, due to loss of insurance I took Caden to a clinic I could pay cash and make payment to. It is a “kids” clinic, so I figured it was the best place since they deal with just kids.
We got there they took us back a sweet young lady I think doing her residence put Caden in the chair put some cool sunglasses on and the gas mask on him. Caden kept breathing threw his mouth so of course wasn’t getting the juice. Then the doc came in tried to cover his mouth so he’d breath threw his nose but not really much luck. She then put some numbing gel on his tooth, but didn’t wait for it to kick in and went right in with the needle. That is when the apt went down hill. The 8 shots sent Caden into a meltdown of screaming that they were hurting him and he wanted me. At first they kept telling me to sit down they didn’t want me near him. But I couldn’t take it anymore and went to be with him. He was trying to crawl out of the chair. Then she went to try to remove it. That of course didn’t go over well more screaming and “leave me alones”. I tried to comfort him. Then came in assistant #2 who decided that this was the perfect time to come in and say “Ok Caden, this is enough” in her lovely stern voice! As some of you know we have someone in our life that says this same thing to Caden all the time while Cole can get away with murder … I digress … ugh!
2nd time they had me lay down on his legs while I’m in tears and Caden was in tears they were able to grab the tooth and remove it! My parents picked Cole up and offered for him to stay the night. Caden and I hit home with the ice cream he was allowed for dinner and I took some Nyquil and early to bed we went. Cole then decided he wanted to be a turd and didn’t want to go to sleep. I was knocked out, Rick at work so when they called to bring him home no answers. They brought him home, poor thing only stays there around 1 or 2 times a year so when it was time to go to bed he of course was not happy and wanted to come home. UGH What a freaking day! THEN the next day I took boys to Lowe’s kid clinic that I signed up 3 weeks a head of time for. But of course my gas light came on so I stopped to get gas got to the clinic at 10:18 to find at 10:15 they gave away one of my kits to some SMUCK who didn’t pre-register and just showed up! YUP that was my weekend. Head cold finally going away, Caden doing much better now to get over the snow … lol!
