Just to Sum up the pictures below….
Riley does not tolerate anything in his mouth. He hasn’t for years! Obviously we have been able to feed him through his gtube but that did Nothing for Oral Hygiene. This has been a Serious concern of mine with the Team but to them it falls secondary…If even that. The Risk of Infection to have Dentistry come in and clean his teeth is to High for them to even consider it.
That all being said… The last few days Riley has begun to let me in his mouth with a toothbrush!!! Then with Toothpaste!! He has let me brush his Entire mouth… Tongue and All without Gagging Once!!
It Truly Feels Like a Miracle ♥
I Do have some concern of aggravating something in his mouth. I don’t want to cause an infection! I will talk to Hanna on Monday about it.
In the Big picture it is a Wonderful.. Monumental.. Step for Riley
