A Near Miss

On Sunday as we were getting ready for Mass, Grace was standing on the toilet chewing on the wood piece on the end of the blinds. She jumped off the toilet to follow George out and nearly pulled her tooth out. It was sticking out literally horizontal to the ground, just straight out and loose. I pushed it back down and took her to the emergency clinic nearby. She really didn't cry much. In fact, by the time we were pulling out of the driveway she was much more concerned about the fact that we left her shoes than she was about her tooth. The tooth has tightened back up although the tooth isn't in the exact same position as before. We followed up with the dentist on Monday. She didn't seem to think the permanent tooth would be affected, although she did say the baby tooth will stay like it is until if falls and may even discolor in the meantime. We really are lucky she didn't completely lose the tooth. In the grand scheme of things, it really was a minor injury! You can see the difference in her smile in this picture from last night. Ahh, the things this girl puts us through!
