All is good. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and giving support to us. I wish I could respond to each and everyone of you, but I am afraid I don't have the time to do that. I hope you understand...
Suddenly I don't feel so alone in this matter as many of you live with cleft palates just like I do. A father, a brother, a daughter, a friend... It is more common than we think, although I hardly see any other cleft palate people in my life and that sometimes make me feel very alone about this.
Luca was so brave in hospital. Not making any fuss at all. Operation went very well, they even got some other things fixed at the same time. Wake up was tough... Luca was in bad bad pain. His cheek quickly swell up to the size of a tennis ball (and it is still that big!!!). After two shots of pain relief (I guess morphine and something else...) he then turned in to goofy entertainment. Ha ha ha.
We are now on recovery until next week.Today is a day of hanging out. I am mentally tired after all this. I am doing a bit of hooking and sewing. Photographing and preparing blog posts. Cleaning and baking and just sitting next to Luca making sure he is fine.
I send all my love to you out there. Now I have to pick up little Emmy Bo and make pancakes for lunch. Today is a good day. And these mini flowers of mine make me heart skippy happy. I have prepared a tutorial for you. they are so fun to make. They would look very cute in a bouquet of twigs for Easter, don't you think?
