Hospital Dentist

Today we spent the day at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. It is a world leading hospital when it comes to the care of children with heart conditions, so I am thankful we live about an hour from it (depending on the traffic!!). William had a follow-up appointment after recent day surgery to repair some of his teeth. He has weak teeth which is common in children with cardiac issues. Today everything was looking fantastic though so we won't be back for six months except if he needs surgery before then.

William also had a photo shoot for a hospital pamphlet in the afternoon so that was very exciting!!

In between appointment we enjoyed some time in the Starlight Express room. A room full of computer games, movies, craft, table tennis & air hockey - a great way to cheer up a visit to hospital!!
That is wonderful! So glad you had good news & something fun to look forward to! Yay William! We have quite a few cardiac patients at the RMH and they are fighters! Very inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

Your son was meant to be and you are lucky to have the best care so close by..a great shot but 'shudder' I hate going to the dentist...one thing I procrastinate on all too often :)

Brave boy! Glad you have such a wonderful facility for treatment for him! Amazes me how heart and gums/teeth all tie together. Our body is one amazing machine!
