Artoma has his first appointment today...the dentist.
I know he has about 5 or 6 cavities, but he does NOT like to open his mouth
and will not let me brush his teeth at all. So I don't know what they'll be able to
do today, but hopefully they can come up with a game plan to get those teeth fixed!
Tomorrow he has an eye appointment. He has white spots on one of his eyes, which is
related to the Goldenhar syndrome. But that's all I know about it.
Then I have to make the pediatrician appointment and see just where we should start on
getting this kiddo fixed up. I see a lot of doctor visits in our future :)
by the way...his nickname in the orphanage was Artoma, and he responds well to it, so we tend to call him that. But Rich says it in a thick Italian accent, like 'arr-TOE-maa' which is weird, since he's not Italian, he's from 'my special country'....
The appointment didn't go well. He wouldn't let them look in his mouth. He would pucker up his lips like a monkey, which he does for a kiss :)
They suggested we take him to the internation adoption clinic and see what they suggest.
But I did get a couple of cute pictures which I will post ,when I find that darn cord......
