Marlon has had four dental appointments. Two the first week, then the following week, we went and hung out at my niece's cottage for a few days. Nice to hang out with family, celebrate Aneesa's fifth birthday, and get away.
The week after, at Marlon's third appointment, the pain of working on a deep cavity was too much even with extra freezing. The dentist said the cavity was at the nerve and an extraction would be best. Either that or a root canal and there is crowding in his mouth. At that, Marlon was quite upset. Because there are so many factors at play, and still so much work to be done, the dentist recommends dental surgery at sick kids. Just as that was decided the power went out and after waiting a while, they put a temporary filling on the two teeth that had been drilled. So Marlon's fourth appointment included re-filling the tooth that was ok and pictures of some of the teeth yet to be worked on.
Paco has been keeping himself busy this summer, including doing body work on our car. We laugh that with all the work this car has endured it has five different colours from wrecked cars.
