Seven children plus one mom got our teeth cleaned.
It only took 4.5 hours!
Thanks to Denise, our sweet hygienist, who came in on her DAY OFF so she could clean our teeth in one swoop! That 's a LOT of teeth, Mrs. Denise. I don't have a pic of Mrs.Denise because she was laying out cold on the dental chair, panting and sweating after she finished the last of us.
Yall shoulda been there last week when 8 children plus one mom got their hair cut in one swoop. Thank you Lord for a beauty salon and a dental office who love us so much to accommodate us so generously! And thank you Lord for "feeling good days"!!!!!!
One month from today is Kevin's heart cath! Today we go for a checkup so I'll keep yall posted! (Update! Kevin got a GREAT report: NO RIND! And his oxygen sats were 82! Praise the Lord! Those numbers are great for him! Before his appointment we had prepped him pretty good for a doctor's visit. It had been a MONTH since he'd been to the doctor! Isn't that wonderful? Every time we drive downtown he sees the big buildings and says "No doctor, no doctor" and I reassure him, "No buddy, we're not going to the doctor today!" But today I had to tell him "Yes, we ARE going today" and his eyes filled with big crocodile tears. BREAK MY HEART! He always screams during his echocardiograms, so I told him if he didn't cry, I would give him gum and take him to Walmart and buy him a Woody. (He loves Woody from Toy Story--but don't worry, Miss Pattycake, you're still his favorite! Why just last night he was singing to you in his crib---well singing to your "action figure" anyway! :) SOOOOOO....Kevin was VERY brave. He did not cry one tear at the cardiologist! Dr. Romp was AMAZED! So were we! Thank you Jesus, it was such an answer to prayer! (Kevin's seven brothers and sisters were saying BIG prayers that he wouldn't cry!) And yes, as soon as we left, we went right to Walmart and got him a Woody which he proceeded to smother with kisses as he rode in the buggy for the rest of the shopping trip. It was adorable. HE is adorable! Thank you all for continuing to pray for little Kevin!
