We're scheduled for surgery for my 3yo on March 2 to repair her cleft palate. This week we learned from the ENT that she **won't** need tubes in her ears, which is rare with cleft kids. I'm happy! The less they do while she's under, the happier I am.
Obviously, she'll get bumped if she gets sick, so good wishes are most appreciated. For health and for patience after the surgery (hers and mine). She's still not fluent in English (it's not even been 4 months since we got back from China) and I'm certain that she will be a very unhappy camper with the soft food and arm restraings for two fricking weeks. And the skips and gulfs in communication won't help.
Monday is the pre-op appt with the plastic surgeon and the appointment to have her blood work done. THAT will be fun. (not)
