Eli has his palate repair surgery tomorrow. He will be in the hospital until sat or sunday. Please keep him in your prayers. Thank you.
Eli's surgery went really well! He isn't feeling too well, but that is to be expected, he did just have major surgery in his mouth. i saw the roof of his mouth and he has 4 lines of stitches going from the front of his palate to the back of the palate. It looks very painful. They do have him on morophine to help him rest and help with the pain. He will most likely go home friday.
He has arm restraints called "no-no's", he has to keep this on for 3 weeks. and he has gets fed with a syringe for 3 weeks as well. they do not want anything in his mouth for those 3 weeks. the procedure is such a delicate procedure that just the slightest preasure can break it open.
and now...for pics!

will do! one of my best friend's son had to have the surgery, and she said the two weeks afterwards was the worst, with the arm restraints. I hope that Eli recovers quickly and that you can keep his little hands away from his mouth.
