Christopher’s new lip! After all the will they won’t they have a bed in HDU yesterday, all went according to plan and Christopher had his Cleft Lip repaired and also had grommets inserted into his ears. The operation, from the time I kissed him goodbye in the operating theatre, to when he was brought to HDU was about 2 hours. I had a couple of tears when I saw him as he looked so beautiful with his perfect little nose and tiny mouth. I can’t wait to see his “new” smile 🙂

He has splints in his nostrils, which will stay in situ for about a week and will be taken out when the stitches are removed. Poor little boy, looks so sore and a is quite clingy.

This morning before the operation:
