Once, they did not call until the evening, but I decided to call the office. Of course they stop answering phones at 4, so I got machines, that I was afraid would not be checked until Wed.
A 2" incision will be made in Avery's hip, and a portion of hip bone removed. That bone will be placed in her upper jaw, where there is currently no bone because of her cleft. All this is done so that there is a complete jaw bone to attach implants to, in years to come. She will have a pump in her hip for pain, at least the 1st 24 hours. They said occaisionally patients go home the next day, but usually stay 2 nights. Based on Avery's track record, I am planning on being at the hospital til Saturday.
Please pray for her, and DH, who will be taking care of things at home.
Notice the tail contributing to the droopy skirt, and the ears.
