So, Ben's dental drama that I mentioned the other day? The dentist had him taking motrin every four hours, around the clock. At the three to three and a half hour mark he would cry that it was hurting. He wasn't eating. He was waking up every night, crying in pain. We ended up seeing a pediatric dentist on Thursday (at which point I felt like the mom in Terms of Endearment screaming for someone to do something about my baby's pain). As it turns out he needs to have a root canal and a cap on his second-to-last molar. He's four.

They started him on an antibiotic and last night was the first that he didn't wake up at some point, crying. He's eating. Tomorrow morning we will go in to have the work done.

After that I'm driving my parents to the airport for a well-deserved vacation. So the drawing will take place tomorrow evening. Here is the way it will work: I have everyone who has made a donation listed, in the order the donations were received. Each five dollar increment will be numbered. So if you were the first person to donate and gave $10, you will have number one and two. And so on. I'll use the random number generator to choose a number and the person with that number will be our first winner.

Dumb question? Why not just pull the molar? Isn't it his baby tooth?

Too early for him to learn "root canal" means "suckage".

Poor Ben! I can't imagine having to sit there and wait to have something done about it while watching him hurt so much. Hope that tomorrow brings the relief he (and you) deserve.

A root canal? Poor baby. :( Keeping my fingers crossed for you both!
