It's 9:00 am and she finally has a palate

The plastic surgeon just came out: He's done!!! She has a closed palate. She is a double thumb sucker, so she will be in arm restraints. He did say she will be very, very unhappy and sore.

Now they are starting the ear tubes and ABR hearing test. She likely has some hearing loss, but now we will know exactly how much she can hear. As I understand it, the ENT team will stimulate her eardrum and then measure her brain waves. The test should take an hour.

Thanks for all the emails. We could never get through this without support from friends and family!
