Something amazing is happening and the only way I can explain it is that God answers prayers. Sophia's mouth has had me worried sick. It kills me to think of some scalpel on her gums trying to rid whatever it is she has going on there and then the pain afterwards she will endure from it. From her Dr's appointment that we had with the ENT last Monday till this weekend, the tissue mass has reduced MORE in size. It's the most unbelievable thing! Now when she cries and opens her mouth it's not the first thing you see. I am starting to wonder if maybe this won't just disappear. That would be so awesome but I still know that even if the bubble mass in front is gone that there is still other tissue attached to the gum line and I'm not sure if they'll leave it alone or want to take it out. I just continue to pray daily that our little girl can be rid of this mess and we can all move on.
Here is shortly after birth. At this point the front part was about the size of a big pea and the rest hung down about 1 mm from her gums.
This picture is from this weekend. The back lumps are almost flat with the gum line and the front tissue has drastically reduced in size. It's still attached to the front of the gum plate though compared to the other 2 spots are attached to the bottom.
I told Dave the other day I can't even imagine if I was working again having to go back to work at this time. She is 6 weeks old already. Wow! She is just now starting to stare at your mouth when you talk to her and occasionally smile. Mia is loving being a big sister but still does not understand that you can't cram your head against a babies' or lay on top and not expect her to cry. You can't poke their eyeballs out or push a bottle down their throat. Hopefully with time she'll understand. She really loves to tell other kids we're around that they can't touch or play with the baby though. It's only ok if she does it and not anyone else. Crazy girl.
