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.

Poor baby! We must pray over those teeth.
Ohhhh Gemma, I pray her sweet little mouth and teeth will heal up all the way! Jordan was wrapped up like that when he had to get stitches from a neighbor’s dog bite to his face…hard to see them go through stuff like that. So sorry :(
So glad you found the secret for her! She deserves a little something special for all she went through. I’ll be praying for her little mouth also. That bottom picture reminds me of a little puppy dog!…so darling!
:( Sad. Praying for quick healing for little Gemma and for Stephanie’s mommy’s heart…it’s hard when our babies get hurt! Love you all!
Thanks everybody! It WAS really hard to see her go through that, but she is a trooper and came through nicely;o)
She gets her stitches out on Friday!
