No that's not collagen. His lips are just like that poor boy.
The doctor today had to stifle a little laugh when he tactfully suggested I maybe keep Ambrose indoors for a few days. The crazy and suspicious looks we got in the waiting room confirmed that diagnosis. Luckily Ambrose doesn't seem to really be in pain. He is just very puffy and his top gums are very black. Sorry if you were eating when you happened upon this. If you need us we will be camping out at home!
