1. Two root canals. Scheduled for December 27th.

2. Officially exceeded the dental insurance maximum payout. By a thousand dollars.

3. But. The insurance re-ups in January.

4. The new teeth, scheduled to be constructed on January 3rd, will be covered.

5. Thanking god this happened in December and not June.

The boy handled the endodontist testing very, VERY well. For a boy who gets all freaky when I try to pull a bandaid off...it's a majorly good thing. He'll be getting some valium the night before and the morning of the root canal "therapy". I will be sipping his last, leftover dose. I'm kidding. I will swig it down, not sip. Sipping is for babies.

YOWZA!!!

Thank heaven for Dental Insurance and a boy who seems to be ok with what's happening.

Valium anyone?

OOOHHH, I feel for him. I had a root canal once it wasn't bad save for the taste of bleach in my mouth. LM has to get two more teeth pulled (in addition to the three he's already had pulled) and he has to have that little piece of skin that connects your upper lip to your gum tweaked back (or forever have a space between his teeth).

Thank heaven for dental insurance!
