Well if I were a cat I'd have gone through all my 9 lives with a heart attack! Rach and I were sitting in the recliner and Ethan walked up to us. He has this habit sometimes where when he walks up to something, he doesn't go all the way up to it, it stops maybe a foot or so in front of it and kind of dives into it. Well, anyways, that's what he did this time, only he kind of hit the recliner and fell to the floor, and proceeded to scream. I picked him up and saw some blood in his mouth, thinking he's busted his lip with a tooth or something. I held him a good 5 minutes and when I pulled him away there was blood on my shoulder, which didn't really bother me, but his mouth had never bled like that before. Well, I laid him back on my lap and pulled his upper lip back to see how bad it was busted (not really sure what part of his mouth was busted, you know), and I almost fell to the floor! You know that little tag of skin that attaches your lip and gums together? Well, he'd ripped it open, and I could pull his lip up and see the skin inside his lip! It's just a small hole, but OMG I was so scared and upset! So, I called the ped and spoke with a nurse...she said to try and put a cold compress on it, and just to leave it alone and it should heal itself in a day or 2. She said they don't do inner mouth stitches unless it's a cut/tear that shows on through the outside, and this doesn't so I'm just keepnig an eye on it and him. I have never seen anyone rip that little tag of skin before, and I must say it's disgusting looking. My poor baby, no wonder he screamed bloody murder after he fell! I just hope he doesn't tear it back open or anything.

Poor guy! That's the little flap that they've been telling me WOULD bust open on Jessi's mouth at some point ... and it never has. Hers actually goes between her front teeth and attaches to the roof of her mouth. For all her bumps and bruises, it has stayed attached. Sigh ... which means it has to be "clipped" when she gets her braces, which she might not have needed if that thing wasn't there!

Anyway, sorry about his boo-boo ... sounds like some popsicles are in order for the little man!

Poor baby... Gavin has busted that a good 3 or 4 times. And it always bleeds really bad but heals up pretty quickly.
