Last Surgery Update

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Leah's surgery went well , thank you to everyone for your prayers . The pain was a lot less this time because they gave her Lortab liquid since she can't take codeine anymore . Most things were the same as last time like the No No's and sleeping in the car seat , the only thing different is her diet she can only have food the consistency of baby food , I thought this would be hard for her at first but I think she understood she went back to eating it just fine , it will take a while for her to get back to normal , as usual after a surgery she cries more and wants to be held more and gets up more during the night . The Dr. assured me that the palet was completely sealed so that was a relief  , both of us will be glad that no more food will be coming through her nose , before the palet surgery when Leah would eat whatever went up into the palet would later come out her nose , this was not pleasant for her , once I had to pull out long pieces of chicken that she hadn't chewed up very good . As far as pain and recovery goes this surgery was better than the last two , it seems she recovered a lot faster and the Lortab worked wonders for her pain . Will post more when I become less busy :)
