Nephew made it home!

    My little baby nephew made it home from the hospital the day before Thanksgiving! We went over to Delaware that day and then celebrated Thanksgiving with them and my parents. He’s doing great so far but will still need surgery in about a year to correct the cleft palate.

    That is wonderful … I am just curious as to why they are waiting a year. I just assumed it was something that would need to be taken care of sooner than later

    With cleft palate they wait until the baby is close to a year old. I’m not sure the exact reasoning but I think it’s so the baby’s mouth has room to grow a bit and so that nothing has to be repeated. That just seems to be the norm. We know a little girl who had it and she had her surgery right around her 1st birthday this past summer.

    Thanks for the info… I didn’t know much about it.
    Continued prayers for him :)
