Doctor Ben gave her a hug, told her we'd try again tomorrow, and sent her home. Well that night Mia got a good talking to. We explained what Doctor Ben would do and assured her that he wouldn't do anything to hurt her, he only wanted to help. In fact, Doctor Ben is known as "Gentle Ben", and the nickname fits!
Well , Mia said she was sorry and promised to do better when she went back; and she did.
After he laid her back, he put the numbing agent in her mouth to get her ready for the shot of novacaine.
It's hard to be brave sometimes, isn't it Mia? I'm proud of you though! You overcame your fear and did what you needed to do. You're the finest young lady I know!
