Back to the hotel!

We were discharged this morning! Judah is still not interested in eating.. it seems we have fought this battle enough already! If he feels uncomfortable, any pain, or is distracted, he loses interest in food. I should have seen that coming Mom and Dad are the same way :) But still! He needs his chunk so please pray that he eats!

I have not been able to get very good pics..we brought our camera but not the battery charger! :) So I have been using my cell.

Here is Judah right after he got out of surgery..

They kept the gauze over his lip and packing in his nose until Thursday morning.
-cold saline over the gauze every hour to help with swelling
-cleaning sutures every 4 hours (we are still having to clean to make sure there is no crust)
Wednesday Judah was so swollen! His big eyes turned into little squints. :(
His lip is very bruised from Dr. Mulliken pushing the premaxilla in (he did Judah's gums along with the lip and nose.)

Top 2 pics- He is still trying to get to his hands for comfort..and fell asleep that way!

I am behind on my updates so I am trying to cram a lot of info into one :)

Dr. Mulliken never has too much to say but we see him tomorrow to make sure Judah's sutures are clean. That makes me feel good. Cleaning gets pretty tricky!

Over all I am overwhelmed..but happy! God is so amazing. He is working everything out so beautifully! I love Judah's outcome. I can't wait to see how he looks when the swelling and bruising has gone down. I do miss his smile..I just keep staring at his old pics on my cell phone.. He has been trying to smile lately!

I think that is a info over load... :)
I love all of you and I REALLY love the comments! It is very comforting knowing all of you are thinking and praying for us.


  1. We like updates! We will continue to pray that he will eat. God has everything under control. He's in His hands.

  2. Hope Judah's eating better soon! Can't wait to see his new smile! Continuing to pray for y'all...

  3. Thank you so much for the update Rebekka, we are all so interested in what is going on with you all there in Boston. His new smile will be as beautiful as his old smile. We will definitely be praying that he starts to eat ASAP. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.

  4. So good to see my baby! He is adorable. I can't wait for all the swelling and bruising to go down too! :)

  5. Yay! It finally let me post!

    I am so happy that everything is going so well. He will eat soon because God is good :)

    I love you darling and I am so proud of you - you are so strong :)
