We have been dying to talk to more families who have gone through the surgeries to get any advice we can. On Sunday night we got a call from a family in Boston. They used Dr. Mulliken, our doctor, and had nothing but wonderful things to say about him, his nurse, and the surgery.

Their little girl, Ivy, had an almost identical cleft to Bauer's. We couldn't believe the results afterwards. You can barely tell the cleft was ever there. She is beautiful!

The mom, Karin, said Ivy healed so quickly afterwards. She was feeding on the Haberman within 2 days. YEAH! So encouraging!!!!!

Karin gave us some details about right after the surgery that I'm sure we'll be glad we knew beforehand. Some of the things she said will look scary, but are normal and will heal well. It gave us a great idea of what to expect afterwards. We will be in contact with them throughout the surgeries and hopefully longer. They are a wonderful family. I think we may get to meet them when we go up in December.
