Trip to the E.R.

Last evening as I was cooking dinner, the girls were running through the upstairs playing with each other. They were getting a little rambunctious and were told by Mommy to calm down before someone gets hurt. I just got the words out of my mouth and Jillian rounded a corner and smacked dead on into a door jam.
I ran to find her gurgling blood, now I have encountered a lot of blood, cuts and just about anything you can think of in my past line of work, but when it's your own baby it's a whole different ballgame!!
I rushed her into the washroom, bent her over the sink and started rinsing her mouth out with water. I could see a cut on her lip, I applied pressure to the area and it's then I spotted the real emergency. Her front tooth was loose, very loose and hanging below it's neighbouring tooth at least a 1/4 of an inch.
Emergency calls were placed to the dentist, we were told to go to admitting at the Emerg and we would be seen by the resident Dentist. We walked in and were seen immediately, he took x-rays and decided not to pull the tooth, he didn't feel it was going to fall out on it's own and cause her to choke or asphyxiate in her sleep. He could see in the film she had a fracture and needed to be seen today by a pediatric dental specialist.
We have an emergency appointment today at 3pm, so how's your March break been??

On a happier note Jen is off on a big girl date with her Daddy to see a live performance of Mulan, Jill was supposed to go, we will make it up to her when she is well.

Update,
Well Jillian still has 2 front teeth, the right one was pushed up and the left one pushed out. The left one hangs about1/4 of an inch lower. It is very loose, the hopes are it will bond itself and not lose blood flow. They were very concerned about damage to the permanent teeth, it seems they looked unharmed on the many!! x-rays Jillian had to undergo.
We have another return appointment in 2 weeks, we are keeping our fingers crossed that we can keep the loose tooth!!
