This morning we took Molly to the surgical center to get her cavity filled. Her appointment was at 7 am so my mom was in charge of the baby and Justin and I went with Molly. They put a mask on and she went to sleep and then we got to watch a movie while the dentist worked on her. Everything went great! Just one cavity and a nice cleaning (since she wouldn't let them do it at her regular appointment!). Unfortunately the doctor said that her teeth have developed weakly :( but he did seal off her other back molars. We are very vigilant on brushing her teeth now, so we hope to never repeat this fun process! (Not that she won't ever have a cavity, but next time she shouldn't have to be sedated!)

The hardest part was when she came out of it and was crying for like 10 minutes. That was hard. She had a bloody nose since they ran a tube through and that was bothering her a bit I think.

But now you would never know it! She is acting back to normal. Glad it's over with!

I didn't have a cavity until after Hal it's all her fault! Poor Molly, they are no fun at all!
