The Sparkle in His Eyes

Gpa has been chewing on his finger. I got worried about his teeth. I took him to a dentist around the corner.  They couldn’t get an x-ray and recommended an oral surgeon.

Gpa charmed everyone at the oral surgeon.  I expect nothing less.  He has that certain something.  The nurse got him a blanket and then offered to take him outside to get warm while I settled up.

“There he goes off with another woman. ” and everyone laughed.  But I was serious.

He gets girlfriends where ever he goes.

Afterwards we picked Gena up from work and went to the mall.  Gena wanted to check out a sale.  I got Gpa a cookie and coffee.  Mostly because he likes it but also to celebrate great report.  He waved at the babies around him.

As we left, we got on the elevator with what looked like a mom, dad and little girl.  I’d say she was somewhere around 3-5.  Gpa waved when she turned to look at him.  I said something about another girlfriend.

The doors opened, the family got out and then we got out.  The parents were headed away but the little girl stood between us trying to decide who to go with.  You could see it in her eyes.  I waved so she’d know to go with her parents.

Boy that could have gotten us in trouble!

    I think it’s wonderful you’re thinking about your grandfather’s dental health. In long-term care facilities we see a lot of behavior problems in our residents due to oral pain — for a variety of reasons. Blessings to you and your grandfather.
