We are having our LO cleft palate surgury on April 12. I'm kind of nervous and scared it's not going to be as easy as the lip repair (he had his gums done at the same time). We didn't quite realize how much he hated the NAM. LOL
Anyways, What should I expect? Is he going to be miserable for 3 wks? He loves to eat, but what can I feed him and am I going to have to bring his food or does the hospital supply it? How long should I expect to be in the hospital for? We were told 3 days but has anyone been out sooner or is this unreasonable? AAAAHHH! If anyone can prepare me for this I would be eternally grateful. Thank you.
