Ben and I decided to call today D Day -- he has a Dance and a Dentist appointment. Seals will be placed on all of his unsealed teeth this afternoon. What a wonderful thing they are! I had such terrible and neglected teeth as a child that it just seems miraculous to me that these kids grow up cavity-free -- thanks to fluoride and seals. The dance is during the last two class periods and is a party to celebrate kids with high MAP (State standardized tests) scores.
Last night we went to the Stained Glass Theatre to see a play one of Ben's classmates played a lead role in. What a great job she did! She had to sing a cappella several times and speak a lot of Spanish. At the end of the show Ben went to speak with her and she greeted him with a big hug! He took it in stride.
Minnie is hanging in there. She seems to be responding to the IV fluids and has sniffed at, but not eaten food. We should know more by the end of the day.
