Wow!! Great news..... I love reading your updates, they are so encouraging and hopefull to others going through this..... Also, don't worry if one area closes slower than the rest. Jared's did that also....his issue was due to an undissolved stitch the surgeon thinks....once it was removed, the area closed. But having an area that is slow to close has happened to a few past cleft lift members.....2 i recall off hand....and both did have successful closure of the area in time.
