Full Circle

A year and a half ago, my little K3 was hit by a truck in front of her transition school. Those of you that know the story followed all the surgeries, bone grafts and implants she went through to restore her broken jaw and all the missing teeth. It was a very tough time for one scared little girl who developed coping mechanisms to get through the process...

Of course, one of her mechanisms had four legs and a tail, but whatever works!

Yesterday, that story came full circle...

After months of preparation, her store-bought teeth were finally ready for installation. And so, Asthmagirl, K3 and Dental Dog went to see the reconstructive dentist.

There was the site preparation for the installation of her new bionic teeth...

Checking to make sure everything fit like it should....

And two hours later, her first look at her new teeth.

Take a moment, I still have to mop up when I look at the wonder on that face...

After a hug from the dentist, K3 announced on the way to the car that the one thing she wanted in the whole world was Brewhouse Mac and Cheese from the pub. We placed an emergency order by phone, picked it up and sped home. When we opened the bag, we found that the manager had slipped in a container of their famous No Doubt Stout ice cream! What a lovely gesture to mark such an enormous occasion!

Yes, I made her show me her teeth at least three times this morning. I still can't believe we've come full circle.

Sorry, I have to go mop up again...

AG out!
