It's been a crazy couple of weeks here but we did have Cassie's appointment with the cleft Dr. on Monday. He believes Cassie's lip muscle was fixed correctly and he didn't see any issues with her palate or gums. Because of this we can hold off a little while longer on her lip revision. She needs to be rechecked in 6 months just to make sure everything still looks good and she's not having any problems with eating or her speech.
We'd like to wait until next fall to have her lip revision since we'd like to focus on Chloe's palate first. Plus, I kind of like her crooked little lip. I will miss it when it's gone. And, add in the fact that Cassie's still on a bottle, not sleeping through the night and will be getting a little sister soon is a lot for my baby girl to be facing. Surgery -- for now -- can wait. The great news is that when she does have surgery it will be outpatient. That makes this mama very happy.
I'm hoping to have more to share about Chloe's paperwork soon.
