This past weekend did not start out right. Friday mid morning Braden lost another cap due to a broken tooth. Same tooth just opposite side. I just about broke down over it. Stephen and John were just coming in from hunting and met us in Murfreesboro to have the tooth pulled. We had to drive out there because of the holiday and our other dental office was closed. Fortunately, Braden's dentist was working the Murfreesboro office that day. Bad news is it took them 15-20 minutes to get the tooth out. Me and Pop John both just about died having to watch poor Braden try to scream. It was the worst thing I think we have had to endure in a long time. All the other things Braden has to deal with he is knocked out and usually on good pain management. But this is something he had to endure awake. Not only that he has to have shots to numb the pain and can't have the happy gas that most kids get. I sincerely hope he does not have to go thru this again.
So the rest of the weekend was saved by a visit from Stephen's sister and her family. We actually went to dinner at Steamboat Bill's Saturday nite. It was our first indoor family dining experience. :-) We picked this place because it is never packed, the tables are far apart and there is plenty of room for Braden to stay in his stroller. It was perfect. Then Sunday we all went to the zoo. It was packed but we still had a really good time. It was so nice to have a normal family weekend. It's the first we have made for ourselves since this crazy journey began. As Stephen put it this month is going to be the month of fun. We want to have as nice a time as possible before Braden's surgery and our long term camp out at Vandy.
