Conall's Cleft Lip and Palate

Conall, our youngest son, was born October 31, 2002 with a wide unilateral cleft lip and palate. Conall weighed 10lbs, 10oz! Not such a little guy! Over his lifetime, he will have several procedures and surgeries to bring the separated parts of his mouth together. We're using the blog as a place to share our experience with others who are seeking information and, perhaps, some reassurance.

Tooth Has to Come Out :(

Conall had a tooth pulled today.  A bottom baby-tooth was taking too long to come out and will end up banging up against the palate expander up top (coming soon), so it came out.  Dr. Krusky is such an amazing pediatric dentist that Conall was relaxed the entire time and didn't feel a thing.  It feels a bit tender now and he's only eating soft food, but otherwise he's feeling OK.  Still, no fun.
