It brings me joy (again) that bodies heal, and especially little bodies.
Ginny is a climber. Today she was climbing and fell. She had her tongue sticking out at the time, apparently.
Michael and I could see that she was bleeding from the mouth and thought she'd bit her gums or hit her cheek or something.
It wasn't until I looked closer that I realized she had a hole in her tongue. (no tongue piercings, baby girl!)
Tongues heal fast. But WOW, she bled a lot that first hour. I researched like only a mother can...
And we realized there was nothing we could do.
But she loves popsicles.
She's healing quite nicely, as this picture two days later shows...
