Little Lips....



Well, those are the lips today.
Not NEARLY as puffy as they have been.
Woohoo! Progress!
His mouth is still flaming red, & so are the innermost parts of his lips...but, the sores on his lips are gone. Or...not exactly gone...but, they're not all puffed up. They've busted open (YUM!), so now it's just fresh little open spots. Poor guy....

So, today, his mouth still hurts.
He's still crabby.
He's still whiney.
He still breaks down in tears when it comes to eating.
But, "Scooby make it feel better."
We've been playing "garbage man" in the living room & watching Scooby Doo. I take junk mail, tear it into pieces, and wad them up into little crinkles and throw them all over the living room floor. He then takes the trash truck all around the living room, & pretends that he's visiting a neighborhood & picking up their trash. He loads it into the back of the truck until he's got it all picked up. Then he takes it to the "'cycle bin" [recycle bin...b/c it IS paper after all...] & empties it. Then, I start over---raining trash into my own living room.

....oh, the things I'll do for this child!

This, my dear, is exactly what makes you one of the BEST MOMS EVER :)! I'm with you though...trash on the floor? Whatever, as long as it keeps him occupied and diverted from thinking about how sore his poor little mouth is. It's painful to look at his lips. And you say they're BETTER, huh? Poor kid!

And...you hang in there!

Poor little guy. I know things have been tough lately, and I hope that they start getting better soon. I know we don’t really know each other, but I’ve been thinking about ya and sending good thoughts your way.

Have you tried feeding him stuff with a straw? It's fun, you can puree heaps of stuff too! Though ice cream and fruit smoothies win hands down! Poor wee man.

Poor little guy. They do look painful. The garbage truck game sounds like lots of fun, and I'm not even a little boy! Glad his lips have gone down some.

What a sweet (sad!) picture of your little guy.
And you are a trooper for playing "garbage man."
But that's what we do - and when you look back, you wonder how you ever found the patience. (Mother love...)

Oh ouch! Poor Mr. Gage! He does have the collagen look, though...lots of people would pay big bucks to look like that!

Hang in there!

Aw sweetie, I am so sorry he is so sick. Just awful. You are the rockin-est mama ever! I would never even think of doing something like that. I hope he heals up quickly.
