Katie's Lip

Poor Katie can not catch a break lately.  On top of having all her foot issues, her dentist found a growth on her lip which needed to be removed.

 Katie said she thought it was just a little flap of skin and she hadn't really thought much about it.

Other than gnawing on when she was bored.

I had to take her to an ENT who cut it out and cauterized her lip.  The look Katie gave me when they brought out a huge needle was priceless.  I wish I had gotten a picture of that but it might have incinerated the insides of my camera.

After a few days, the area turned into a really icky scab.  Luckily it wasn't visible unless she pulled her lip down specifically to show it off.

Now she has healed completely and the biopsy showed that it was benign.  Thank goodness!  I don't think we could have handled any more medical needs around here!
