"No stitches are needed for mouth wounds unless they break through the skin to the other side."
Panicky moms shouldn't make these decisions by themselves
Luckily my neighbor had just messaged me on g-chat so I knew she was home. My heart was racing as I headed two doors down to have her take a look. Taryn had calmed down and we both decided that stitches weren't possible because the holes were so small. It took awhile before both of us were completely calm again and luckily Taryn gobbled up her dinner with no problem. Taryn fell right asleep at bed time and this morning her bottom lip was a little swollen and the two holes below her lip are already closing up a bit. I can't believe how good Taryn is being- I can't imagine how much that would hurt!
I am so grateful for friends who are there to help me. Thanks, Julie & Paige, for making the situation easier to handle.
A little bath while skyping with Aunt Mackenzie made things a little better.
