thankfulness

Hey, Thanks friends for the prayers on Suzy's behalf. She woke about 4 this morning saying that her "ouchie" hurt. The Motrin wore off and she was ready for another dose. It was little sleeping after that. We got the older 2 kids off to school and then headed up to the dentist, he took x-rays and we found out that she has a crack in her upper jaw. And she also tore her frenulum of the lip (the part that connects the inside of your lip to the gum. The dentist is confident that the teeth that were pushed back will eventually go back into place by the pressure Suzy puts on it with her tongue. All these injuries will heal on their own. Thankfully she is 2 and does not have her permanent teeth, her upper jaw is still growing and soft and will heal on its own. We are also thankful she did not sever any of the nerves, which would have required surgery and then pulling the teeth out. We have al ot to be thankful for. Thanks for your comments, thoughts and prayers.

PTL ~ Kids do bounce back better than the parents don't they? That almost made me feel queasy the way she pushed her teeth up & back, but I'm so thankful she will be better. You need to talk to Cindy about teeth - she's pretty much seen it all w/her kids!
