All good


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?

Happy Thursday

  10. I'm so glad to hear the good news! That's wonderful to hear that all went well. Poor Luca being in pain though :( but a relief that he is feeling happier and more comfy now. I hope all continues happily for Luca. A lot for him to go through, but I bet he is relieved now the operation is over. You all must be. Hope you have had a peaceful day after the stress and anxiety of worrying. Take good care of yourself as well as Luca. He is in the best hands with you as his mum to look after him. Wishing him a speedy recovery and my positive thoughts for his future.

  17. I hope your beautiful boy is feeling better and not in too much pain. What a great deal you both have to go through. I never realised the seriousness and the amount of surgery that was required to alter a cleft palette. It's amazing what we can cope with when we have to, but I admire you both for facing it so bravely. (((hugs)))

    Can't wait to see the tutorial for these bright beauties too!
