My son's cleft lift is scheduled for this coming Tuesday. I have talked some about how we got to this point and what a role the people of this forum have played in getting us here. I think it is important to continue the conversation about cleft lift surgery so I wanted to start a thread documenting his progress- and questions I or others might have about the process. I have left his name out on purpose thinking that maybe if he were anonymous he may find it easier to share his surgery pictures. To me this is funny because as a mother of teenage boys I have made an effort to keep them from putting pictures of their butts on the internet and now I am trying to convince my 16 year old to let ME post his butt pictures. It's a strange new world. I'm sure I will get more into the details of our backstory but for now I just wanted to ask if those of you who have been through it can say a few words about what your first week was like so I can get him ready. Thanks so much.
