When I took Boston in on Tuesday to get tested for strep I mentioned it to the PA and she suggested bringing her back in this afternoon to see Dr Yarckin so he can check it out. We did (2 visits in 1 day...fun fun). Sure enough she was and he said he would go ahead and clip her. Unfortunately after a lot of crying he wasn't able to. After 6 months babies start to obtain the ability to move their tongues back and forth so she kept moving her tongue all over and even with the nurse holding her tongue he didn't feel confident enough to do it. He suggested waiting until she is 3-5 years old and assessing the situation then. Meaning if she is having speech problems we will do speech therapy and possibly surgery to fix it. Ugh....more therapies. Not the answer I was looking for. Can't we just numb her tongue or something so she stops moving it? Wouldn't that be better than spending years in therapy, $100s in drs visits and copays.
So I'm praying for God to perform a miracle on my babies tongue and let it stretch out on it's own. Let her smile be normal and her tongue have the ability to stick out at her brothers when they embarrass her. (Just kidding on that last one - as you can see Asher now has that ability.)
