Greyson fell yesterday (or earlier today if you are West Coast!) and busted his mouth pretty badly.. There was blood everywhere and I couldn't see where it was coming from. The more I wiped, the more he bled! I thought he had ripped the top of his lip and would need it sewn. That was not the case! He busted his TEETH on our dining room floor (we have Travertine tile and it is NOT forgiving..AT ALL!) and his gum was bleeding! It looked like something out of a horror film where the person starts choking on blood and it spills out of their mouth....Yeah... EXACTLY LIKE THAT, except it was MY BABY! I didn't panic (much!) and I had my friend drive us to the ER. They saw him quickly and did x-rays and determined he did NOT have any breaks, fractures or broken teeth (Thank God!) BUT... He still could lose his tooth since their is severe trauma to his gum.. :( They gave him antibiotics as a precaution, so he doesn't get an infection. We can't let him chew on anything hard (HA, explain that to a teething 11 month old!) and we aren't supposed to touch his tooth at all. We will be watching him for the next several weeks to see if the tooth becomes discolored. If it does, it will need to be removed. Say some prayers for my sweet boy or send up some positive vibes for him please!!!
Here is a picture from tonight and some others from this past week!
