24 hours later...

24 hours later....we are back at the dentist office.....(after hours) I have to say first that the VA was excellent with us tonight....Michael started bleeding badly from his gums.....the Doctor went straight to the office and some 2 1/2 hours later he is home resting....His gums would not clot because of the blood thinners....so they had to take all the stitches out....then get the bleeding to stop...repack the opening....restitch....and then they made an impression of his gums and made a template that would cover the stitches...put that in place so that there will be constant pressure on his gums.....we will be back at the office at 9:00 tomorrow morning.....checking on the progress...
He will have to go to the dentist every day to make sure this heals.....
One heck of an evening!!.....
I feel bad for him....as there is nothing I can do to help this situation....can't take the pain away...
can't make him comfortable....but at least I know that the VA is on top of this and the dentist and her assistant were so kind and wonderful....that at least helped ease us through this....
There will have to be a new game plan for the bottom teeth.....that will be discussed tomorrow....
For now....only jello...pudding....ice cream and pain pills!
