I know that this surgery is a need,
I know that this surgery will help Jailyn with her speech,
I know that my hope is in the Lord,
and He will keep her safe.
But, I am still her mommy!
and it still breaks my heart!
Our surgical team will be elongating Jailyn's palate.
Presently, she has too much air pushing through
which makes her speech difficult to understand.
This is a pretty intense surgery,
not as bad as her surgery almost 3 years ago,
but still pretty intense.
She will also have tubes put in her ears -
as she has 30-40% hearing loss.
We are really hoping that the tubes will correct this loss.
We will be in the hospital for at least one night,
depending on how she does.
Last surgery was really difficult for her emotionally,
as soon as we got home she was much more relaxed
and was able to recover much quicker!
