|Grandma waiting to see the dentist.|
So, today I spent 10 hours with Grandma. Let me say that again... I spent 10 HOURS IN A SMALL CAR WITH GRANDMA!!! Answering every question about me over and over and over and over and over and over!!!
*Please reread the last three sentences in order to get the full effect of what I went through today.
|Exhausted at the end of the day.|
Because so many things happened today, this will probably be a three part summary. Secondly, I am exhausted from the day.
|Waiting on the dentist.|
She started telling me how sweet I was for taking her to the dentist. I'm thinking "Grandma save your sweetness for when you are extremely tired at the end of the day." LOL
We waited about 10 minutes. Grandma is in the chair when they have her pick the shade of her teeth. She wanted the pretty white ones. And then they came in with the bill. She said "oh my lord!" I told her not to worry about it, I was paying for it. She calmed down and said ok. I didn't mention I was paying with her check.
She told them to put her name on them so "that man" wouldn't get them again. According to the dentist, people switching teeth happens often in the nursing home. Well, grandma is not in the nursing home and neither is "that man"! The dentist was really sweet with grandma and she cooperated so well. I was amazed.
|New teeth with her name|
We left around 9:15 a.m. and had to come back around 3:30 p.m. Around 3:00, the dentist receptionist called us and said they were ready. Grandma was so excited. We returned and within minutes Grandma had new teeth. She tried to smile but it was a little scary. LOL
We successfully achieved our goal and had a great day together! I will try to write part 2 tomorrow. There are so many other things that happened with Grandma: Sara's cats attacking her, Grandma running out of Crackerbarrel, Grandma inviting random people to her house, driving to visit Uncle Brent, seeing all of Ashley's kids, and last but not least grandma telling me how to get home. Don't miss it!!
