developed and hanging a couple cms apart.
With some research done by a worried Mama, I was 90% sure he had a
Submucous Cleft Palate. After a visit with his pedi and a pediENT, they
both said yes and were impressed at my research. This at 11 months old.
A month later, we found out from the Pediatric Plastic Surgeon (who is a
Cleft Palate specialist) that he actually had a full Cleft Palate,
which would need surgery asap.
His ASAP surgery is tomorrow
morning. He'll have to stay in the hospital overnight. Then, there is a
four week recovery period of all soft food. He'll also see a speech
therpist until he's five, and if his speech isn't developing properly,
he could have more surgeries.
I'm not too worried about the
surgery because I know the medical team is experienced with this
situation. I also know that my baby is being watched over by more then
just men, but a Savior, Jesus Christ, who understands all we go through,
and loves infinitely.
With that said, can y'all say a little prayer for our family as we start this journey tomorrow.
