We met with the ENT and audiology first. Judah did have fluid in both ears so we decided to get the ear tubes to help with speech. Next was pre-op, and finally Dr. Mulliken. He was so proud of Judah. :) The day wasn't so bad. All the appointments went pretty smooth.
The day of surgery! It did not take near as long as the lip surgery. Just about 4.5 hours. Judah did not wake up crying either. He was sound asleep waking up just enough to look around and go back to sleep. There was packing in his palate, but kept breathing fine with no difficulty.
Judah would not drink anything but could not have any milk until the packing was out of his mouth anyway. He was already wanting to get into everything and rolling around. He got a hold of his fingers twice Wednesday night..not sure how.
Judah is a little fussy today, I think he wants his bottle back. He slept awesome last night even without his fingers! :) We have check-ups on Monday and we go home on Tuesday!
Judah has to have the bone graft surgery around 9 yrs. There is a 10% chance he will need a surgery around 5 yrs, and he might have to have one last surgery in his teen years on his jaw.
Thanks for praying. We love you all.
