...and not one of them work! Just when you think you've heard it all, we find out that the thing removed from our child's face was where an ear actually tried to form as he was growing in my belly! The doc did a fabulous job (as usual) and removed this "ear" off of his jaw line and he had to dig down about two inches to get it all, it had grown inside his cheek. Gage was a trooper and said "That didn't take long, I feel like I've visited Mandy (his audiologist) and left with a band aid." The doctor removed the hump in front of Gage's ear also which was extra skin left over from when they tied the pre-auricular tags off with strings at birth (those tags simply fell off after a couple of weeks). Oh, and I know he's too big for the toddler toys but no one cared if he rode in that, it occupied him during the 30 min wait pre-surgery.
the tags removed are just below the print
I told him this morning that when people see others with scars, it lets them know they have a history, a past, an interesting story to tell about how they earned those scars...scars are cool. Today when Brook got off the bus, I heard him tell B, "Scars are cool, it means they've had something interesting happen."
Speaking of Brook, apparently her batteries ran down right before school got out, she couldn't get her processors to turn back on so they sent an older kid to ride with her and help her out since she rode home in silence. We fixed them when she got home, I think she changed battery cages, and not the batteries. They work now. And I know, I know, I didn't want to send her on the bus but had too, I wasn't sure I'd get home in time to do car pick up.
