First tooth fairy visit

Alex has been doing really well since being home.  Yesterday evening she had a scope done under anesthesia to see if they could avoid having to do a full on revision of her surgery but unfortunately they were not successful in correcting the problem.  There was too much inflammation to take her to surgery last night so she'll undergo a surgical revision in the next couple of months.  
The more exciting news of the night was Alex lost her first tooth!  She had a loose tooth that was ready to come out when we arrived for the procedure so the anesthesiologist pulled it out (so she wouldn't inadvertently swallow it or bite down on it).  Mommy wasn't prepared for this but all is well now.  The tooth fairy came to our house and as Ryan put it, "paid Alex money to grow a new tooth." 

My little girl is growing up

Awww! That's a very sweet photo of you and Alex. Her smile looks lovely even with her first baby tooth gone. I think having the anesthesiologist pull the tooth out, so Alex wouldn't heedlessly swallow it, was a good idea. I guess that means you had your eye on that tooth ever since you noticed it was loose. Thanks for sharing that with us! All the best! :)

Awww! I can feel how much you love your daughter, Nic. In spite of her condition, I can sense how much happiness Alex feels in your presence, and that is just the most satisfying feeling you can give to her. Anyway, congratulations to her first lost tooth! She’s growing beautifully, and I know that you are so proud. Thanks for sharing that wonderful milestone! All the best to you and your family!
