Follow-up Appointment with Plastic Surgeon

Adalynn had her follow-up with Dr. Burstein today and he is happy with how it looks. We picked Broderick up early from school and Camden was already home (he is fighting a virus) so it was a family affair. It took about 1 1/2 hours to drive there and 1 1/2 hours to drive back, so it was only fitting that we were in and out of the doctor's office in about 25 minutes. CRAZY!!!!

While we were there I asked about her nose being so flat on the cleft side and he said that she didn't have much nose to work with and they will operate on it again when she is 4-5 yrs old (when she is bigger and the ear cartilage is stronger). He also said that we needed to start massaging the scar (a knot has already started to develop) and he prescribed a steroid cream for the incision site. She still has stitches on the underneath side of her lip and on her gum-line that will dissolve in 4 weeks or so and we are still on for December 10 when he will repair her palate.

Thanks for checking in on us. We love you all!
