Home From Surgery!
We are home from the hospital! Noah is doing well. He still had another desat overnight, but only for a few seconds and he self resolves. So they weren't too concerned anymore and we just need to watch him closely at home. If we notice him having any bluish episodes we need to take him back in. He is a much happier boy since they took his nasal stents out and as long as he gets his tylenol, he's quite content. He doesn't even seem to be missing his soother anymore. The swelling is slowly starting to come down. He has to wear arm restraints (blue's clues restraints - a bit hit with the kids!) and the steri strips until our follow up appointment with Dr Ross in 2 weeks. The surgeon was also able to attach the lip muscle during surgery so that should help massage his gum line and teeth into a better position. We should notice a difference over the next few weeks.
We are so glad to have this latest hurdle behind us at last. Now we can enjoy Noah's new face!! Thanks to all for your many prayers and words of encouragement!
