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痴 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!

Well I showed them all today! Dr.Nini told me I would not suck on my bottle for a few days. Well today I took three bottles full. Plus I had plenty of discharge, you know where. The downside is my tongue is a little swollen and I tend to drool ALOT!

Basically like a straight jacket! This keeps me from sticking my fingers in my mouth so I don't rip the stitches on the roof of it. Would be good for dieters too!

This is what happens when the Hospital ID Tag is put on to tight, and covered up with IV tape for two days. No wonder I was such a pain in the butt, when the nurse would hold my hand.

Well I have really been putting Mom through the ringer since my surgery. My sleep schedule is off & I have nightmares. Since I'm on a liquid diet I want three times as much, if I don't get my way I have a fit. The doc say's its the anesthesia, it has to work it's way out of my system, then I'll be normal again.
