Day 3 post cleft lip repair. I guess it’s like that saying it gets worst before it gets better, his poor little eye looks so rough! But he’s feeling much better as you can see with his cute little smile trying to fight through. We’ve gotten a few questions that I’m sure lots are wondering the same. What is that tape on his forehead; In the 3rd picture you can see there is string connecting the plastic nose stent in his nose pulling up and taped to his forehead to give it some more support for a better result. This Friday at his first post op appointment his surgeon will remove the string. But the nose stent will stay for 2-3 weeks, unless it falls out. What are those cuffs on his arms; in the 4th picture you can see the cute pineapple “no no’s” that Tad will wear for the next 2-3 weeks until his repair is completely healed to prevent him from touching his fresh incision or pulling anything out that shouldn’t be pulled out, like the string or nose stent. We made it out for a nice walk and Tad was loving it!
