After it was all over she calmed down pretty quickly. We brought June home, gave her Popsicles and pain medicine and she had a "normal" night. June is recovering better than her moms. We're pretty shaken up, but she seems like her usual self. She's been eating only soft foods but playing like normal and chatting away. She will have a June-o-lantern smile for about 4 years, until her adult tooth comes in, but there is no risk of permanent damage to her mouth.
This kind of thing brings home the awesome responsibility we have to keep her safe and healthy and the reality that there is only so much we can do to protect her. A hard lesson of parenting.
