Unexpected bump in the road...Cleft Lip
My beautiful daughter #4 (I have 6)delivered her first child yesterday, a boy and my 8th grandchild. I have been lucky to be included in all 8 of their births, 3 of them were c-sections and one of them was twin girls who are turning 3 next month. My newest GS born yesterday is beautiful and healthy. We were all blindsided though, as he was born with a cleft lip and palate. I have been SO lucky to have all healthy children and grandchildren, but I'm feeling guilty that I went home and cried after he was born. My daughter my most sensitive and emotional child has been absolutely amazing. The hospital is giving her such help and she has been able to nurse him with the help of a lactation consultant and special breast shields. They already have an appointment scheduled on Monday with a top specialist at Children's Hospital Boston. He faces many surgeries, but the outcome looks good. Please pray for him.
