A Mother’s Thoughts and Fears | Update
Updated: Mar 11
Some people say that the internet community is not really composed of actual friends. I always felt that wasn’t true, and now, after yesterday’s experience, I know it.
I’ll admit I was fragile yesterday. I know if I had reached out into my physical locality, I would have found love and support from my ‘real’ friends, but I actually couldn’t face facing people, if you know what I mean.
So I poured it all out here, and you rallied round. It was amazing, and humbling. Something I am grateful for, and will never forget.
But what you really want to know is, how is Carys?
Well, she is a little star! Daddy brought her home about 1pm. She looked like she’d been in a war zone, she was covered in blood, and I mean, it was everywhere! But she smiled, she ate and drank, took her meds, played, interacted and was completely and utterly charming, as if nothing had ever happened.
But wait till you hear what they did to her! Removed 9 baby teeth, because they were obstructing her adult teeth and preventing them from coming down; four fillings, and snipped her lower frenulum (the skin flap which joins her bottom lip to her gums) because it was too small and tight.
Poor little girl!
Anyway, thank you for all your kindness, support, caring comments and love for Carys.
Have a great weekend, everyone. xxx
