emergency at school

March 13th, 2007 at 10:11 pm

I was enjoying my lunch at work today when the cashier yells, "is there a nancy here?" I wasn't paying attention, but my friends call out to me to let me know it was me. Apparently there was an emergency phone call for me on my floor. Needless I run to the floor to find out that the school is calling. My 7 year old was pushing another child on a swing to have it come back and hit her in the mouth. All I heard was a tooth was out (they didn't know if it was adult or not ) and there was a lot of mouth trauma. I went to go get her to bring her to a dentist. Good news: it was a baby tooth ( I saw that right away), but I wanted x-rays to make sure the adult teeth weren't injured. Bad news: we switched dental plans at work and our dentist wasn't in this new plan. This was not the time to find a new dentist. Everything is okay in her mouth other than a lot of bruising inside her mouth and it looks like it won't be that bad for my purse as they will submit to this insurance and they feel it will be covered (apparently other patients use this insurance also).

Moral of the story
1. pay attention when you push someone on a swing
2. when you switch insurances research the new doctors / dentists and pick one right away. Or at least make sure your old doctor/dentist will accept payment from the new insurance.

    Oh, wow, I'm glad she is okay! I can remember getting phone calls from the school. I remember one incident where DS ran into a pole in P.E. But we didn't have anything as rough as what your little one is going through. Poor thing.

    Ouch! I am glad it did no permanent damage. This is one case where the tooth fairy may want to step it up a notch. I did that when the orthodontist removed a device from my daughter's mouth and a tooth that was not ready to be dislodged yet came out with it. Fortunately a baby tooth, unfortunately a molar! She was in so much pain, she got a fiver for that one.
