Huge thanks to Oasis Dental Care! Gabriel Magirescu has been a total life saver this week. I hadn’t seen a dentist in 3 years due to fear, the mere thought of going sent me into a panic. On Monday this week, I was left with little choice because of the agony I was in and being 37 weeks pregnant, with gestational diabetes, the situation wasn’t doing my little lady any good. So on Monday morning – I had an emergency appointment with Gabriel – resulting in lots of work with no pain relief. He was calming, reassuring, understanding, and talked me through everything. I even went back again yesterday for more! Of course, I am still incredibly nervous, but knowing that I have someone like this, that I trust, makes it a whole lot easier – and I certainly won’t leave it so long next time!
On another note, I’ve known that I need to sort my fear of the dentist out pretty soon. Stanley is under the care of an orthodontist and as a result of his cleft, he will have alveolar bone graft surgery when he’s around 7-9 years old. He has a gap in his gum, where his tooth has come through sideways, and hopefully the surgery will allow for his adult teeth to come through properly. So, considering what he may have to go through in his life – I need to buck my ideas up!
Anyway, today is the first day since Saturday that I am feeling pretty much back to normal, and I only have Gabriel to thank for this. Next up… I just have the pain of labour to endure (which I’m hoping will seem a breeze, in comparison)!
