Just a quick note to say that Emma's sutures have come out AGAIN....
Feels like we're just replaying the scene from 6 months ago and it's so discouraging.
Well, I take that back.... the palate still looks to be in good shape. But the nasal is just wide open again.
The surgeon is keeping a close eye on her through zoom photos twice daily to watch any changes and we go in tomorrow at 10:00 am for a follow up.
Emma has constantly been licking - which is what's causing the sutures to come loose.
Doc had me put her on children's benadryl yesterday to keep her somewhat "sedated" and to help with the "itchy feeling" that healing can induce.
It's helping, in that she's sleeping a lot and not licking nearly as much.
We are back to hand feeding and giving her fluids via the syringe for now.
Please continue with the prayers and good thoughts.
Much love ~
