The Case Of The Missing Tooth

Well, our morning yesterday began with a call to the nurse line and the pediatrician plus a trip to the Urgent Care all before 9:00 AM! I am not that overally paranoid Mom who is going to freak out every time her son falls, after all he is a boy, but yesterday I felt was some serious business. It all began as I spent my morning time on the internet and Samuel attempted to help me type. But to get over here he had to get from point A to point B which had a few obstacles (we have since picked up). Well, in the process he fell and hit his mouth on the wood chair. And out came the tears and the blood! There was so much blood I couldn't even see his tooth and I made Dave search the carpet for his tooth. He couldn't find the tooth and he didn't stop bleeding. So I got a washcloth got the bleeding to stop and there was the his mouth. But over course that didn't satisfy me because I was sure the tooth got pushed back up in the gum line so I called the nurse line for my insurance, who told me to call my pediatrician (I hope it was considered urgent or there goes $25.00) who told me to have them check it out at the Urgent Care.
To make an already too long story short, the doctor at Urgent Care was more worried about his runny nose than his suspected tooth that was pushed back into his gums. He said that we need to be careful at this age. DUH!
The day ended pretty good, Samuel stayed at his Aunt Terri's and we went out to celebrate our 2 year anniversary!
