NAM Appt. #5

NAM Appt. #5

Amy, Emily's Aunt and my sister-in-law, met me at the hospital today. The appointment was about two hours - we got a new piece of tape on the NAM. This one is to pull the columella (that piece of skin in between her nostrils) down so that it stretches. The longer the columella, the better result we'll get with the surgery. The taping is very complicated, or rather difficult to do and you need to glue it to the space below her nose (called the "prolabium"). WhenI got home, Jim took one look at it and figured out a much simpler way to do it. I took pictures of it and emailed it to Dr. Grayson and he thinks it's fine to do it our way.
