My gorgeous daughter Airlie decided to go and get some silly tongue piercing yesterday….
Her body rejected it in a big way. Her neck, throat and tongue has swollen to incredible proportions, this afternoon she had to have surgery to put a tube in place down her nose to ensure her airway doesnt get blocked altogether.
Consequently, she is in Intensive Care in John Hunter Hospital, and being kept heavily sedated, ie comatose, until the swelling goes down.
I am kind of in an ok place wit h this, i know she is in the absolute right place, and that air can get to her lungs if it swells further.
I am hoping this will be a bit of a wake up call for her, maybe the piercings etc are not all a good idea…. her lifestyle has been a bit extreme lately (well for the past two years).
She is a beautiful girl, her major problem is her lack of self esteem.. which has led to all this……
Airlie Girl, I love you from here to the moon and back. Please get well soon..
