|Pre-Surgery 2011 9/28/11 9/28/12 9/28/13|
I don't know about y'all, but to me, it doesn't seem like it's been two years since Fitz had his first surgery?!? Yep, he had his first surgery on September 28, 2011. What a scary day that was for all of us! He had his lip and nasal repair, tubes put in his ears and was circumcised that day.
The doctor told us his lip would not be fully healed for a year, and that it would continue to go into place as he healed. I wanted to do a comparison shot because I love them, and just to show how different he looks even today, than a year ago. Isn't plastic surgery amazing?!?
It didn't matter to us when he had his cleft, and we were actually a little disappointed to see it gone right after surgery, but we are so blessed to live in a country where this type of surgery is possible, covered by insurance, and done so early in life. When Fitz looks at his baby pictures, he doesn't even know who that baby is, with the cleft. When I tell him that's Baby Fitz, he gives me his curious eyebrows like he doesn't quite believe that, ha!
Thank you, Lord, that you have a plan for Fitz, and it's a plan to prosper him and not to harm him, plans to give him hope and a future. We give YOU all the glory. Amen.
