Prayers are needed!



Please pray for my oldest son Adam! He is 12 and is going through some major pain in his mouth! 3 yrs ago he was playing on our trampoline, a neighbor kid jumped with him and knocked his adult Front tooth out! Yes it was an accident, none the less we got rid of the trampoline! It was an expensive accident! He needed a crownand root canal done!! Now 3 yrs later the tooth is reacting weirdly and the Dentist is stunned as he has not seen anything as unique as this before... Now my son needs an epilectomy, (hope I am saying this right) anyway, he needs to see a specialist. We were supposed to go to a different 1 in 2 weeks but today he has woke up with a swollen mouth and worse then ever! I cannot send him to school! He cannot even talk or drink and it has gotten worse every day! This apparently was starting last saturday. Tuesday I called the dentist( mon-holiday) found out the dentist was in the hospital! (Like hairdressers, Dentists can't be sick;) Since they are closed on wednesday there is an oral surgeoon there instead so they had him see him, they took ex-rays and found out there was a bad infection! He was given antibiotics! Besides taking them 4 times a day he needs to take pain killers every 4 hrs! My son IS in pain as he would NEVER swollow pills no matter what before! So thursday the Dentist is back to work( he was in the hospital because his face dropped, he had Bells Paulsey) SCARY since he is my age!
Anyway! He looked at him and is very concerned why his tooth is reacting this way 3 yrs later, but he took a closer look and said his teeth are loose, its like the bone that holds them is weak and failing so we scheduled an appointment in 2 weeks but that cannot work as my son is laying here dying as he cannot take pain but face it who can stand teeth problems?It is the worst! (The Dentist prescribed Tylenol with Codiene and it is barely working for him too)! So I called The dentist today and they are getting me into another specialist an hour away! Luckily my mom is off work today and can go with us! Please pray he gets through this and pray for me as I cannot stand all this myself! It makes me crazy to see him in so much pain and the way kids treat him at school is so bad enough! Pray he gets this taken care of today as I do not think I can go through this 1 day more! I believe God has His hand on Adam and He is doing a work in him! Thank you Jesus for Peace,Strength and Patience in my household!

As I was reading your post, an infection was my first thought. I pray that all goes well and they are able to get the infection under control. Tooth pain is so unbearable. Lots of prayers will be offered up for Adam and for you as you deal with getting him the care that he needs. Glad they got you into another doctor sooner than two weeks.
