He got over it quickly cause he was so excited to go to school for his Christmas program. He has been practicing his songs for some time now and was real excited for us to come and watch. We were getting ready to go to his program when I got a call from the school. They told me that Jace had fallen and bit his tongue. I went to go get him thinking it wouldn't be that bad, cause he tends to be a little dramatic about things. This is what I saw! My poor little guy bit through his tongue!
His teacher said he was rocking back and forth in his chair and she had just finished telling him to sit still so he wouldn't get hurt, and as she turned around and was walking back to her desk he fell forward and hit his chin on the table and bit his tongue.
Here is a picture of him while he was waiting for a room in the OR to open up. Isn't he so cute?!
They said his tongue would swell pretty good in the next couple of days, but that he should recover just fine! I'm not sure exactly how many stitches he has, but they had to do a few on the bottom, some in the middle, and there are at least 8-10 on the top.
He was very sad to have missed his Christmas program, but his Aunt Kristi told him that when he gets better that he and Brynn can sing the songs for us and she will video them so we can all watch it together. He is very excited about that and even with a swollen tongue has been practicing the songs for us. It is so cute and so hard not to laugh.
