It looked like he had a ping pong ball in his cheek. So scott and I took him to the ER. The doctor there gave us some Motrin for the pain and Penicillin to help with the infection and told us to come back tomorrow morning. We went back and saw the on call dentist. He looked at Benjamin's face, took some x-rays and said we had to pull the tooth. Benjamin who normally is good at the dentist office screamed and screamed. Even after he was throughly numbed he screamed. Sam played with my iPad and I had to hold Asher and Benjamin. The doctor finally got his tooth out.
Benjamin spent the rest of the day drooling, watching movies, napping, and playing the Wii. He did drink a juice box and eat some ice cream. We've been switching him on Motrin and Tylenol to help manage the pain, but he doesn't ask for any pain medication, the little trooper.
Then the poor guy woke up this morning, I think he looks worse, but it may be swelling from getting his tooth extracted. He's also running a fever again.
So your thoughts and prayers are appreciated. He is just really not feeling good.
