We had been postponing Lucy's cleft palate surgery for a few months but after meeting with her orthodontists a few weeks ago he suggested that we not wait too much longer .
Lucy was very nervous about the surgery ( alveoloplasty and rhino plasty ) . Mary had the same surgery for her cleft palate last year so Lucy kinda new what to expect. Mary breezed right through her surgery but Lucy ended up having a few minor complications . She had a very bad reaction to the anesthesia and that made her recovery a little slower along with some bleeding issues.
The third day post op she finally turned the corner and started feeling better. The hospital was having their annual Turtle Derby Fundraiser and Lucy was feeling well enough to venture down to the court yard to watch .
The Clowns also stopped by and brought lots of happiness !
This weekend we had a wonderful visit from Paul and Meghan . They came home for the weekend for Megs friends wedding .
Little Miss T had a pretty good week. We will head back up to Philly next week for another check up .
Gemma Rose will start her new chelation medicine this week along with her daily chelation infusion to hopefully lower her Ferritin levels . We are praying she does not have the same bad reaction that she had two years ago when she tried this med.
She still goes to Hopkins every three weeks for her blood transfusions . We are hoping this summer we can stretch it to every 4 weeks but if not we will make it work out .
What a blessing to have everyone home and doing so well !
