Orthodontia was denied by insurance despite his syndrome that is directly responsible for his anomalies. We go see the oral surgeon again in January and see if new paperwork will get it passed through because he not only needs braces, he needs dental implants and possibly jaw surgery as well. I used to think that was so far in his future but at age 13, he's fast approaching the age (17) where they want to address the jaw distraction issue. Only time will tell, but he's a pure-bred champion so we'll cross that bridge when we get there (and with a smile on our faces).
Brooklyn is still doing well. She's almost 11 now
Brooklyn's hens are now laying. She started with 18 for the 4H project and gave away 9. Some of her 9 remaining began laying eggs this week (brown ones). We are still waiting on the Easter-eggers to lay which will be pastel colored eggs. She is such a good little "mama" to them. Other than that, we just enjoying mountain/country living and can't believe how Blessed we truly are!
