Lily has been whining for a few
A big, yellow, full-to-bursting puss-filled gum pimple. Staring at me through it's multiple heads.
No wonder her gums hurt.
We did the salt wash. We did the prescription mouth wash (leftover medication - shhhh. Rinse 'n' spit.) She whined. Incessantly. We even tried the warm compresses to try and draw it out.
Finally I couldn't take the whining anymore. We're going to DEAL with this thing!
She FREAKED when she saw me get the pin. FREAKED OUT. No faith, no faith at all.
I numbed her out with anebesol (thanks Finn!) and barely touched it with the pin, and KABLAMMO! Pus was literally running out of it. Like I say, the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. Yellow gross pus was running down her chin, mixing with the snot and tears and a bit of blood for good measure. Two paper towels and another dab of anebesol later, she's nearly good as new. Watching her try to rinse out her mouth was fun though, I guess the drool had swirled the numbing stuff around and made her whole mouth feel "thick". She didn't feel the water until she drooled it all over her clothes. She's laid up in bed now with a cold pack to shrink the swelling.
So, SO gross. I didn't realize I was signing up for this shit when I had kids.
