One Week Post Op....

Nikolas you are recovering well from your surgery. You have had some bumps in the road in the past week. You fell while trying to crawl the second night home and fell on your nose and mouth. It required a trip to the hospital the next morning to make sure you were ok and that your stitches were all still in place. On your third day home you came down with a cold. The doctor put you on antibiotics. You fight mommy every time she has to squirt the antibiotic in your mouth. You also have developed a strong fight not to have your pain meds squirted in your mouth too..... But Mommy loves you and is doing what is best for you. Your eating habits are not the same as they were before your surgery but getting better with each day. You have found a new love for Tapioca Pudding and it has become a good sorce of calories for you. Mommy was happy today when she took you to the doctors for a followup on your cold that you have only lost 5 ounces of weight.

Nikolas your face has changed in so many ways.... Your swelling is almost gone. Your smile is big and long. You have a little chin that mommy just loves. Your eyes stand out even more. You have discovered that you can lick your upper lip now and have fun making noices with your new lip. Mommy cannot wait to see what is under all your bandages.

Mommy Loves you!!!
