Palate Repair Surgery

We woke up early this morning, grabbed a bucket of coffee from Starbucks, and came to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for Gavin’s palate repair surgery. We were here in August to get his lip repaired, and Dr. Singh did a phenomenal job. We were here a year ago to have Griffin’s kidney repaired, so we’re getting pretty familiar with this place.

Dr. Singh is amazing. She has taken such good care of us and Gavin, and so has Phoenix Children’s… well, except for that cranky chef in the cafeteria. The burger was good, but that dude had a case of the Mondays.

Gavin had some fun in pre-op.

He’s sleeping right now all snuggled up next to his momma, doped up on some codine. His recovery will take a few weeks.

After his surgery in August he became super attached to his mom. In fact, it wasn’t until last week that I was able to hold him for more than a few minutes without him crying for her. This surgery was more intense for him than the last one, so it might be Easter before I get to snuggle with him… but he’s in good hands 🙂
