EIDDIN 'LOST' A TOOTH

I don't know what really happened. It only came to my attention when Aily was almost hysterical while was washing Eiddin's mouth. I first thought it was just a cut at the lips.

It turned out that Eiddin had fell while trying to climb the stairs. The worst part was his tooth took the full force of the fall causing his recently emerging teeth to be pushed back into his gum. What horror.!!! Eiddin was crying like never before and Aily kept going on and on about "..if only, if only...". But what to do - these things happen.

As a precaution, we took the boy to the dentist last night for a consultation. The doctor can't really say for sure but according to her, in most cases, the affected tooth would die from the trauma. If that's the case, there's nothing much that can be done except to wait for the tooth to be pushed out naturally. The only thing that we have to look out for is whether the trauma affects his gum.

But so far so good. He's eating normally.
