3:30 Arrive home to find the messy kitchen that I left and nervous boy on couch.

3:37 Look in boy's mouth to find that the sealant stuff is completely missing. Hello nerve.

3:37:10 Kick self for second guessing and not acting on intuition.

3:38 Call nitrous oxide endodontist - lucky guy - he's on freakin' vacation until next week. On call replacement doesn't use gas. Hate the on call replacement.

3:45 Call dentist. Where I am put on hold. For far too long.

4:13 Hang up. And continue to wait for the dentist to return my call.

4:14 Hug son as stress is eating him up. As if we all don't know the anticipation of pain is usually far worse than the pain itself.

4:25 Reconsider the make your own sundae thing I planned for Friday. Ice cream on a nerve? Probably not a wise choice.

4:55 Wonder how we're going to pay for all of this.

Hugs to your boy.

I know this is tough. I hope it all works out.

Keep us posted. I'm thinking of you guys.

Oh my, this takes me back....when I was between the ages of 8 to 12, I had all kinds of dental problems. I HATED the dentist (oddly enough I don't mind the dentist now as an adult).

Hope your boy is OK.

hugs and hugs and hugs. Prayers for the boy, for you, for all of it. It's so hard to help the anxiety, isn't it?
