Emotional Moment

 Good morning Ladies,

I hope all is well.  My Darius was born with a cleft lip. He had his repair in 2008. Soon it will be time for him to be evaluated for bone grafting (7/19th). I must admit, I am an emotional wreck. I know I have to be strong for Darius and also for myself but it is quite difficult knowing that he is at the age where he understands that his lip wasn't normal, he even began asking questions last night which has really put me a little over the top emotionally and hubby is away at football camp but returns tonight. Today I had to whip out the business card of the parent liason because I was at my work desk emotional, thank God no one was around. I am trying my best to be strong for him. Last night he asked if the doctor is going to open his lip and he proceeded to smile and asked if he looked nice. I am grateful that his palate was not involved and understand that his situation could have been alot worse but everyone is different and I'm having issues dealing with this right now. I know as time goes on I will get stronger as I won't have a choice but now.....just not my strongest.

Thanks for listening ladies

I can't even imagine.  I know I would be nervous as well.  Please keep us updated after he has it done.  Hang in there mama!

 Thank you. I wasn't expecting him to begin asking questions so soon.

       Ask God for his strength so you can also have the strenth to deal with your son.  Let God hold you hand so you can get through this.   Your son is a lucky little boy to have his lip repared.  God Bless him!  group hugDona127
