Syd was so brave today, she had her first surgery. She had a frenectomy (removal of the little fleshy thing that holds your lip to your jaw above your front teeth) and she did so great! Syd's was extremely thick and caused a large gap between her two front teeth. I know a lot of you are probably thinking, "Who cares, she's just a kid!" Well, it was so thick that it would have to be done sooner or later, and after doing some research, Andy and I decided to get it done now to eliminate some of the scar tissue problems that can occur if it is done later on.
She had to get numbed up and then they lasered that thing off. It's a pretty big hole in her mouth, and I will spare you a nasty picture of that, but here she is in the chair waiting for the numbing gel to kick in. She had been so excited all week and didn't move a muscle the whole time. My Syd is such a brave girl and I'm so proud of her!
