Rebekah did Great at the Dentist

It was an interesting morning. The phone rang at 7:30 and both Scott and I looked at each other trying to figure out who might be calling us at that hour. It was the dental office. The hygenist was having some difficulty getting into work and so they were calling her appointments. Since our appointment wasn't until 10:30, we didn't want to just cancel it. They agreed to call us back in an hour or so to let us know if they would be able to keep the appointment.

For those of you who don't live in the area, we woke up to snow on the ground, near freezing temperatures and more rain/snow mix expected. Most schools were either delayed or closed. They don't salt the roads here, so a small amount of snow can shut everything down.

At 8:15 the dental office called back and said it looked like it should work out fine, the hygenist expected to be in about 10.

We left a little early to head to the dentist as we didn't want to be late and weren't sure how bad the weather would have things messed up. We made it in plenty of time, so we sat in the parking lot for a bit. Rebekah did a great job with the cleaning. She didn't want to lay back, but she helped with the cleaning and allowed Dr. Wilson to look. The good news is NO CAVITIES and it looks like we're doing a good job of keeping her teeth clean. That was great to hear. We have the ok to wait 6 months before coming back, unless there is a change in her medical status. We need to make sure that when we have her quarterly Panorex done that a copy is sent to the dentist, too, so that she can monitor them.

Daddy needs to be in Bend on Monday for work, so we have been debating whether to all go or just send Daddy. The Dunham's home in Sunriver is available, so we're all going to go and have a little vacation. The mountain passes may be rough with more snow, so we'll have to be cautious. A big thank you again to the Dunham's for all they do for us - like providing this vacation.

Because of the trip, I decided to hold off on potty training. It can wait for another day...

Rebekah's diaper rash is getting better, but still needs some help. Tonight, after going to bed, she decided that she wanted to take her jammies and her diaper off. Ugh! Then she needed a new diaper, jammies put back on and bedding changed. Oh boy!
