Today’s humongous #Autism Victory: The Dentist

I wrote earlier about Emmett’s having to visit the dentist this morning. Admittedly I was a bit wary of how this was going to go. 

For starters, I’m indescribably terrified of the dentist, so I wasn’t sure how much of a supportive Daddy I would be today.

Lizze and I were also concerned that because of the need for a cavity fill, it might taint Emmett’s view of the dentist.  Prior to today, Emmett loved going to the dentist. That’s such a huge huge blessing, we didn’t want to ruin that.

I am so incredibly excited to report that if there was a brave Daddy award, I would receive it.



If there was an award for bravest most awesome kid, that would without question go to Emmett John.

I’m so proud of him.  Not once did he flinch or even complain. He ended up needing a root canal and a metal cap.  He did absolutely perfect and I mean, absolutely perfect.

He was such a little trooper and I don’t even have the words to explain how proud of him I am.

When the drilling started, I’m not ashamed to admit, I panicked. Emmett was so brave, he inspired me to be the same. 

Dr.  Gerstenmaier, Emmett’s pediatric dentist, specializes in working with special needs kids.  He did such an amazing job with Emmett that Emmett felt perfectly comfortable.

This is such a huge relief and something I’d been dreading all week.  This has been an amazing experience and I’m sooooo proud of Emmett for doing so well.

As an Autism parent, do you think you've become so used to the high levels of stress in your daily life that you've normalized it or no longer realize it's there?
