Sunday snapshot - Will

Will blue shirt 3

Bright  and early Wednesday morning, Will, my husband Dan and I will travel to our
nearby children's hospital that's in Madison.
Will is having a rhinoplasty of the tip of his nose (in layman's terms that's nose surgery.)
With yearly visits to our cleft team, we're following the recommendation of his surgeon.
She feels that as he's growing older, the tip is starting to point down.
I did ask that she keep the integrity of his beautiful Asian nose.
We know he'll have a few more surgeries in the years ahead related to his cleft.
The ENT doctor will be checking Will's ears and replace tubes if necessary.
Will is also having cavities filled by our ped dentist and some other dental work.
We're happy this will be only a one night stay and
Dan and I are staying with our little boy the entire time.
Post-op, he'll be receiving some surprises (a couple of new toys)
and ad lib amounts of TLC and snuggle time.

Please keep Will and his medical team in your thoughts and prayers Wednesday.
I have great confidence in these caring people and trust his wonderful surgeon implicitly.

A very big day for your little boy. Will be thinking of you and praying for you. If it's truly a wordless Wednesday, we'll know you're too busy holding your baby.

Your son is beautiful! Was his lip repaired in China? We just brought our DD home 2 weeks ago and she has un-repaired CL/CP. Her first surgery is scheduled for August, I can only pray her results are as stunning as your son's! I will be praying for him!

Many prayers coming from this side of the country too!! You will all be in our thoughts and prayers this week and especially on Wednesday morning!

He is a strong little boy and I know he is going to do just fine! Try to hang in there Gail.... it is so difficult to have to watch our little ones go through something like this.....but I am sure he is in marvelous hands with your surgeon.

Give us an update when you can on Wednesday and let us know how he is doing.

Handsome little guy....... he does look great in that blue color....and I love the crop on that first photo....very cool:)

I will be keeping your sweet boy in my prayers.

Our daughter, Shea was born with a cleft lip and palate. She has had a handful of surgeries....

This year may be a big one for her concerning more surgeries....sigh.

So, I know where you are coming from.

I love the picture of your son. He is very handsome. :)
