Another "First"

Well, today Dax had another "first". His first trip to the ER. Luckily it all turned out fine. Dax slipped on the tile and bit his tongue pretty badly. Mom rushed him to the pediatrician, who thankfully is just up the street and around the corner. Dax had stopped bleeding (and crying) by the time we got there. While Dr. Petropoulos was checking him out, we noticed that one of his top front teeth was loose. :( She also didn't like how deep the cut on his tongue was, so she sent us to Dell Children's Hospital for a second look. The doctor at the ER was great and Dax was such a trooper. The good news is that he didn't have to get stitches. Next week we'll visit the pediatric dentist to make sure the loose tooth is ok. For the next few days Dax will be eating baby food again. For dinner tonight he had ice cream, yogurt and applesauce, so life isn't SO bad. :)

Hanging tough at the ER

Getting back to normal by throwing the ball for the dogs (notice Dax still has his hospital bracelet on)
