Charlie's Lip Surgery

Charlie had is surgery on Monday and everything went beautifully. He is doing so great! All of his nurses couldn't believe how well he was doing. We came home Tuesday and everything is going great! He eats like a champ and hardly ever fusses. He is still swollen and it will take about a week for it to go away. He hates his arm restraints, but other than that he's almost back to his happy self. We got him to smile a few hours after surgery and he even started giggling at my husband the day after surgery!

I just wanted to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers for little Charlie. You guys are awesome! :)

Praying for a speedy recovery! My brother was born with a cleft lip and I can't imagine him without his cute scar! I think it gives him so much character and personality!

My daughter was born in October of 2006 with the exact same condition on the same side! It was so hard to put the no-no's on her and travel back to Alaska. They heal so quickly! Be sure to keep sunscreen on it whenever you are outside. I learned the hard way that the scar can burn easily!

So glad everything went well. I used to babysit a special needs child who had pallet and lip. Her operation went just as smooth! She was purely a delight to be around. Wish you all the best of wishes!

Hooray for Charlie! Glad to hear he's doing great, surgery must have been an ordeeal for everyone involved.
I can imagine what a nightmare it must be to see such a little person being subjected to so much pain and stress, even an adult would have a hard time coping.
Thumbs up, champ!
