My sweet Hagan surprised me today
with an emotional reaction.
Hagan is usually so calm
and easy going,
taking everything in stride.
Today he and Griggs had a dental appointment.
Each of the boys had a little cavity that needed attention.
Griggs went first -
And then it was Hagan's turn.
He was just there last week for his check up and had no problems.
Today was so different,
he was reluctant even walking back to the room.
I got him in the chair and they hygienist
got out the gas thingy to put over Hagan's nose.
He started screaming!
Scared to death of that this would not end well.
Sweet boy is so scared of having another surgery
that he has lost trust in everyone
that tries to put anything on his face.
I don't blame him -
I guess we chose the right word to focus on in 2017
and the is healing!
Hagan did a great job when we promised him that
we wouldn't use gas!
He was still and was a champ!!
Trust was built with mom and
with our dentist and staff!
Baby steps in rebuilding!
