I took the kids to the dentist today. My 2 yr old got her 1st check-up and did great with it! I'm so proud of my kids! We live in the far west suburbs of Chicago and drive all the way into the city to a denitist who uses ozone treatment on cavities instead of drilling and filling. Fortunately my 2 and 4 yr olds have no cavities. My 6 yr old was starting with 3 more. He's had rampant caries since he was 2 (that we first noticed.) He's the one who prompted us to find an alternative to drilling and filling. The dentist we saw at the time tried to blame his cavities on prolonged breastfeeding! Aggravating! And she was a holistic dentist! So happy with this dentist! We've never had to fill a cavity yet. And even better never had to drug him for dental care (or any other reason!) Although he's not cheap! It cost us $420 for the 3 kids check-ups and cleaning and to ozone the 3 cavities...and $25 to park for 90 minutes.
I finally kicked the bronchitis! (after a month!) My ribs are still extremely sore (one broken on the left in the back) and pleurisy in the right lung does not seem to be getting better. Still overall I'm so much better than last week! I have to work a full day tomorrow. Then I'm done except for meetings.
I dread the way these last few weeks will drag on. But I'm very grateful for everything in my life, especially my wonderful kids and husband!
