Ok, so after a weekend full of screaming and trauma for Ava, we're finally home.

The last stop today after a total circus of phone calls, insurance and 6 trips to various dental and emergency facilities, was a lovely, absolutely perfect pediatric dentist's office.

Ava freaked out instantly, which we expected, but the staff was very caring and skilled and we were in and out quickly.

The prognosis is that the intruded tooth is in the very best position possible for not harming her adult tooth bud.
The dentist wants to wait a month or so for Ava to recover from the trauma, all the swelling and pain to subside, and then take a look at it.

There is still a chance it will have to be pulled, but there is also a chance it may not have to be pulled and we won't know for quite a while.

Thank you to all of you who prayed for us; please keep praying that the tooth will grow straight back down and there will be no complications. Also, that Ava will be completely "healed" from the mental/emotional trauma so that the follow up visit will not be stressful for her.

She's asleep now and the house is quiet...
