Her tongue was actually two times the size of her mouth. Earlier, she had a surgery, which was not successful and her tongue didn’t stop growing. Statistically, this syndrome hits 1 out of 11.000 babies.
The doctors were amazed by the tongue size. It was also difficult for her to eat, so for half a year she was fed through a tube.
Her parents, Shannon and Madison, were praying that one day soon her mouth reaches the size of the tongue, but this was far from happening. So, a second surgery was performed, which was successful this time and the doctors removed 15 cm of the tongue. This made little Paisley able to laugh for the first time in her life. If the tongue remained big, she would have been unable to speak as well.
