Say A Prayer For Leightyn

We took Leightyn for a dentist visit back in July. We noticed some problems when her teeth a long time ago, but children can not go to the dentist until they are 3. Anyways, so at her first dental appointment, I was told that she needed some major work done on her teeth. I left the dentist office feeling like I was a horrible mom and that I did not take care of my children. My mom and dad urged me to get a second opinion on Lei's teeth so we headed to Mansfield to see Dr. Brown. After x-rays and an exam, he explained to me that Leightyn has soft enamel. This is a genetic condition that causes her enamel to chip off when eating or brushing her teeth. He encouraged us to see a specialist to have her teeth bonded and then a protective coat on top. So... all that being said, Leightyn goes Wednesday morning to being 1 of 2 visits to fix her teeth. She will be put out and it takes around 3 or 4 hours. I have been told that she will not feel anything and will be fine when she wakes up. So...please say a prayer for her in the morning. I will let you know how the appointment goes.
