So, Jessica my dear, sweet 2nd grader just got a Herbst appliance in.
Poor thing, she says it doesn't hurt, and she doesn't seem to be in pain--
but eating is a huge challenge.
I have applesauce,jello,yogurt,bananas and smoothie makings on hand.
(I plan on sneaking in some wheat germ and possibly some baby rice cereal.)
She was such a good patient, calm and still-- the only comment --
was for her to stop talking so that the staff could explain stuff !
Shane did say focused on the MAC computer that had a game on it-- but so much so that I just had to barrel carry him out -- to the car.
However...Shane did have a good day at school today he got 112 points out of 120!!!!! he also earned a reward at school-- motor cross video- and then he came home and got to play Battleship on-line!
I knew Jessica was getting braces, and this appliance, but I really didn't know that I would be having to turn the thingamajig inside Jessica's mouth-- both on the top and the bottom--
But,then I read about so many of you Mom's and Dad's out there who have to do tube feedings,catheters, and so many other medical things.--- I c an do this... I c an!
