We are headed up to Boston for our post-op lip appt. It’s a quick trip this time. We’re going up and then coming back the very next day. It will be crazy but I’m glad we only have to stay in the hotel for a night. The flight went well and now that Bauer is in the backpack we can manage things a little easier. He loves being in that thing. Ours is an Evenflo and it works great.

Dr. Mulliken said his lip looked great. It was a bit swollen, but he said it was normal and is the worst it would ever look. So things can only get better. He mentioned possibly injecting the lip with steroids if it’s still a bit puffy when we come up for the next surgery.
He also checked out his palate and said it was a rather wide opening. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad, but I’m just going to trust that when that time comes he will be able to do what he needs to in order to fix it. Also, after speaking with his nurse, Dottie, we were so relieved to know that after his palate surgery there won’t be any more big appts. scheduled at least until he is 3 or 4 years old and possibly even 7 or 8. It all depends on how Bauer’s speech progresses and how his mouth develops concerning the jaw and gum line. So all in all it was a very good appt. Now our eyes are set on the end of March.
