So yesterday morning was the Big Day... dental day for both girls. Lacy had a 7 am appointment and Rose had a 10 am appointment. I asked my sister Leslie to babysit so I had to get up at 5:30, get Lacy up and ready, get Rose's shoes and coat on, and get out the door by 6. Plus I had to bring lunch and snacks since we're doing our elimination diet. Rose didn't wake up until I put her in the carseat! It was pretty funny.
I get to Les's house around 6:35, shove the baby in the door, put a carseat in her car, jump back in the truck and rush to the dentist's office. We check in, and the front desk person says, "Oh, I'm so sorry-- we tried calling you this morning but you had already left. Dr. Aragi is sick today and you'll have to reschedule your appointments. How does July 8 sound?"
What??? Are you kidding here? Because Lacy has been waiting for this appointment since it was originally rescheduled in NOVEMBER. Yes, NOVEMBER!!! And she had waited several months for that appointment, too! She's been waiting like a YEAR for these cavities to be filled!!! If she has to have teeth pulled, I am going to be so angry! Dave is talking seriously about a lawsuit, so if that is the case I may have to make my blog private during that time, but we'll have to consult an attorney to find out if this blog will be a problem or not. I may not be allowed to talk about this subject at all.
I called the Union to find out if our paperwork for the new insurance has been received yet. So far, it hasn't been entered in, so I'm going to call tomorrow. If they get it before this weekend, we will have new insurance effective April 1. Yippee! I may actually have competent dental care finally!
I'm considering going another few days before I start overloading the girls with the possible problem foods. Lacy's eczema still hasn't cleared up totally. Dave really wants me to get the show on the road, but I'm not quite ready to start. Lacy is dying for some dairy and some chocolate.
