Dolly got sick over the weekend. She had no symptoms except a fever and some facial pain. I only worried because she had a teeth cleaning 24 hours before. For a child with a heart condition, even something as simple as a dental cleaning can cause problems. My worry turned out to be founded. We ended up hanging in the hospital overnight. It would have been longer had I not pushed and pressed to have them send us home to wait for an available operating room.
Yes, we’ll be going to the OR. We’re headed in on Friday morning. She will have one tooth extracted and all the others capped to stop further decay in its tracks. Hopefully, this will prevent any further BIG problems in those tiny teeth.
