We just weaned him off the narcotics and he is pretty good with Tylenol, so long as we stay on too of it.
The doctor was unable to close Luke's soft palate so he still has a home between his mouth and his nasal cavity. We go back in July for another surgery where they will close the soft palate. Then in January of 2015 they will remove the prosthesis and close the palate. So 3 surgeries in one year. Not ideal but it needs to happen. We think he will then have further surgeries when he is 4 (nose), 7 (alveolar bone graph), and hopefully that is it. Elective rhinoplasty seems to always be an option at 16, if needed.
Speech evaluation is this week so we are moving right along!!
Here are a few pics from this weekend..it's pretty rough going!! Hopefully this week we get to see more if his new smile!!
