Viewer discretion advised

Emma's lip looks horrible! This is what happened to it yesterday after she started chewing on it while it was numb after seeing the dentist. She says it doesn't really hurt, but it looks painful to me. I had an appointment today at the orthodontist and I had the doctor look at Emma's lip. He couldn't believe how awful it looked. They took a picture of it to email to my other doctor and they were going to let me know if I needed to take her in to have it looked at or not. I never did hear back, so I'm hoping that's because it's nothing to worry about. I took Gage to hockey practice tonight and had Emma with me since Scott was out bowling (for work). My friend, who is an ER doctor, looked at it and called in a prescription for her lip. He thinks it should be cleared right up in about 3 days. I sure hope so. I feel so awful for her. And I also feel like I'm a neglectful parent because the dentist told her AND me, to make sure she doesn't chew on her lip. I didn't even know she was doing it and I was with her all afternoon! Anyway, we're working on taking care of it, so I feel a little better about it now.
Tomorrow's my last day at work! I've got TONS of things to do to get ready to travel to Iowa for Christmas. Hopefully I can get it all done and not forget anything! Wish me luck!

Gee poor Emma. I have to say it does not look as bad as I imagined it would though. I hope her lip is much better in Iowa? By the way, there were only 5 boys from all the white mite ice hockey teams at the game today!! Shannon
