The Transformation Of A Child Born With A Cleft Lip

Cleft lip and cleft palate comprise the fourth most common birth defect in the United States. One of every 700 newborns is affected by cleft lip and/or cleft palate. The transformation of this child born with a cleft lip, to a complete restoration of her face, will be updated weekly until full transformation is complete.
The fine surgeons and staff at St. Peters are the ones performing this service, in New Brunswick, NJ. If you need additional information, please contact them at (732) 745-8600. The regional Craniofacial-Neurosurgical Center provides treatment for babies born with craniofacial abnormalities, including cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Children with facial deformities experience difficulties that surgery alone cannot correct. In light of this, Saint Peter’s has assembled a team of specialists from ten medical disciplines to ensure that the physical and emotional needs of these special children are met. * St.Peters Hospital is not affiliated with this site, for informational use only!

Hey All!! Well finally got to smile today without any pain. Now once this redness goes I’ll look just like all the other kids. I can go to the store and not have anymore stares at me. I even chucked my nuk nipple and got myself one of those normal nipple bottles!
DAY 21 EAT YOUR HEART OUT

Well when Stella got her first cold, it was three nights of wheezing, and coughing and down right crabbiness. But the interesting part of it was, with the tubes in her ears, some of her mucus worked it's way out of her right ear and dried. I thought it was dried applesauce at first, but was easily clean with a moistened Q-tip on the OUTER EAR only! DO NOT INSERT TIP IN EAR! Also try to do this when she is sleeping.

Well I'm at the thirty-fifth day and healing nicely. The following photos are to show you how I have to take a bath now. I have ear tubes now and have to be very careful not to get any water in my ears. But if I don't plan on washing my hair that day I just use the Band-It without the plugs, since my hair will not get wet.
