A few days after Joaquin’s fall in the shower, we had to take him to the dentist to know the extent of injury on his teeth. Two of his front upper teeth were moving and now there was a gap in between.
Joaquin really has always been good with doctors visits, but since his lips and gums were still very tender and sore from the accident, we weren’t really sure if he would cooperate and sit still during his examination and xray. Thank God we brought along Elmo, whom Joaquin fondly calls “wawa”, and with the supporting role of the Ipod video, together they helped Joaquin cooperate. No screaming, no kicking, just sitting still and allowing the dentist to do her job.
But the best part of the check-up was the results of the xray: there were no fractures in his teeth! The dentist said that his 2 mobile teeth should be expected to stabilize within a week or two. Once again, we see God’s healing hand upon Joaquin! Thank you Lord!
