Have you seen the adorable movie "Flight of the Navigator"? It was a fave of mine when I was a kid.
The robot/space ship keeps saying in the nicest of smooth phone voices, "Compliance."
David likes the movie.
Today he had an "appliance" put (GLUED) into the roof of his mouth.
He calls it a "compliance."
I think the crummy day he is now having will make him rethink that movie.
David's appliance will be in the roof of his mouth for 28 days. We will crank it once a day with a key. Then it will just sit there for another 3 months to make sure that his jaw stays widened for his mongo teeth that he has inherited from his mother. I suggested they just pull two on the top and two on the bottom - like they did for me. This didn't go over well with the orthodontist or the dentist. Something about you actually need all your teeth (OH REALLY - then explain wisdom teeth)
Here is the crumminess on top of crumminess. This thing hurts some. The closest his tongue can get to the roof of his mouth is about 1/2 an inch. It makes him drool so much that he couldn't eat a Popsicle's...like lick and then it rolls out of his mouth. He has a really hard time talking. OH YEAH - he has Asperger's.....which is a sensory related thing. He may not ever get used to the feeling. It may agitate him like finger nails on a chalk board for the time it is in his mouth. OH, and eating is a pain. I spent about 5 minutes trying to get a piece of chicken nugget out of the back of it.
AND - he eats no dairy, soy or mushy foods...so the idea of him downing milkshakes is out.
He is mad at me for taking him "to that place."
He hasn't eaten anything other than 1 bite of chicken since last night.
So, that is what is new with us.
Oh, Grandma told David he could pick out any Transformer at Toys R Us today on her.
Mom - Starscream was $49.95. This kid may be in pain...but he hasn't lost his shopping savvey.
And Stacey - no, Mom isn't at my house kicking my tail...so safe to e-mail:)
