Gemma took a hard fall a couple of days ago running to get into the car to take Gavin to school and smashed her mouth up pretty badly. She had to get stitches (2 inside and 2 out) and they are worried about her teeth, whether or not permanent damage might have been done. After the stitches are out and the swelling goes down, she has to see a dentist to make sure her little pearly-whites aren’t going to fall out or something worse.
She came over after the stiches (where she did not cry one little bit, even when she got the shots) and I watched her lip just swell and swell and swell. When she tried to eat a little and it hurt, very quiet tears streamed down her cheek. She is such a sweetie-pie, no drama. Turns out, though, that popsicles are the ticket! Gemma is in frozen-treat heaven!
I love you, my little GemGem.
