Post-Op for palate surgery

Post-Op for palate surgery

We took Emily to NYU for her post-op checkup from her palate surgery. We'd had to cancel the 3-week post-op visit because she had a pink eye and a cold. She did great! Her palate looks good - the surgical resident who checked her mouth said that it looks like she has no fistula (openings in the repair) and the ENT from the team checked her ear tubes and he said they look perfect. Fistula can be quite common, but the surgeon told me that Emily has less than a 1% chance of developing one now that she's six weeks post op. I guess time will tell.

We took Emily with us to Ana's preschool yesterday for the end-of-season party. She loved this stacking toy so much we may get her one.

Emily's munching on Gouda cheese and cheerios (for your complete breakfast). She loves Gouda - very odd. So did Ana.

We're trying to transition Emily off of the soft sipp post op feeder which she's been using since OCTOBER after her lip repair. She is not a happy baby and it breaks my heart, but the soft sipps are falling apart and you can't buy them anymore. There's some kind of defect. I'm sure I'll be posting more about this transition (probably at 4 am while I'm listening to her cry it out).
