Three boys tend to keep life busy and upbeat, so an updated website is a difficult feat. Wes’ lip looks wonderful! He nose has fallen completely and is causing him some difficulty breathing, which has made for some long nights. He saw Dr. Becker, ENT, Friday and diagnosised him with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. She was in the room with him for over an hour and got to see a mild version of difficult breathing when he is asleep. If he would open his mouth, he could breathe much better, but it is hard to reason with a 6 month old. He will definitely be one of those babies who can not sleep without being held, since he spends many nights in mommy arms in the recliner.
He has an appointment Tuesday Oct 3 with the Ophthalmologist, Dr. Pollard, and the Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Burstein. Hopefully this week will bring some answers about his vision and a resolution about his breathing difficulties it should also bring some new photos.
His next surgery is scheduled for Nov 13.
Thanks for everyone’s prayers and thoughts.
