and another trip to CHEO for Kyle

Well it wasn't an "emergency" I was really at a loss of what to do.  He was crawling around picking up cheerio's (one of his favorite pass times, the er doc nicknamed him "cheerio hunter") and he lunged himself forward, mouth first into our kitchen table leg (its a pedastel type table). He screamed, when I got him calmed down I noticed blood trickling out of his mouth - my biggest fear thinking he had knocked out a tooth - and there was a LOT of blood.  After the bleeding seemed to stop, hubby lay him down and had a look in his mouth.  There was now a large space between his top 2 teeth (which didn't use to be so wide) and it looked as if the inside of his lip was caught between them. We didn't want to rip his lip out - so we headed to CHEO. They are wonderful there. 

It was a quick trip, in and out in 1 hr!  The resident looked and thought the same as us, although she wasn't quite sure how to proceed, so she got the staff ped to come and take a look. Upon further investigation, it was NOT his lip stuck; the doc thinks the teeth got pushed back up into the gums, and because of that we were just seeing more gum than normal (although it was bloody and cut). He said not to be surprised if the teeth turn grey (because they are probably dead) and that we need to see the dentist so they can decide on the best course of action (leave them be or pull them out)

Poor little bugga bugga.......
