equals this (this is 10 days AFTER the fall)
Notice the bottom tooth. This picture does not even begin to give it justice. But it's hard to get him to open his mouth for a picture. Poor Wesley took a major fall last night forcing his little tooth straight forward. They were able to force it back into a somewhat vertical position, but it is still pretty darn crooked. The oral surgeon is hoping the fracture on the top ridge of his jaw and the torn gum will heal on its own. He'll just look like a Hillbilly--with his bottom tooth in front of the top ones--until his permanent tooth comes in. He is a pretty tough kid (it looks awful today) and we're just grateful he didn't suffer a major head injury.
And Aaron is not the only adult that has taken a fall on these stairs. I did a while back and it hurt a lot, but my bruises weren't near as nasty. So after 4 falls and 2 insta-care visits I think I am going to see if our landlords will consider carpeting these stupid stairs. The cost of carpet has got to be less than our medical bills. Maybe we're just really clumsy people, but I like to blame it on the stairs. Let's just keep our fingers crossed it doesn't happen again.
