I haven't been into this website for so long, and it was only by chance that I came today. I didn't even think to look at "new replies to your posts", thinking it has been so long, so how I found your message from last week, is a miracle itself.
I am so glad Russell's surgery went so well. You both must be so happy. I bet he enjoyed the 3 weeks off school also.
We have had some good news for Claire. A plastic surgeon in Brisbane (Qld) has finally been granted theatre time at the Children's Hosp, so he can do laser under GA for the kids. This has taken him over 5 years to get. Now we don't need to travel to Sydney, whew. As he will be doing the laser, we will always be in contact with him to keep an eye on Claire's lip. It seems to have settled down a lot lately, but some mornings it can be really big. Does this sound familiar with Russell at all? Did they seem to think that they had removed enough of the b/mark for it not to return or this that a big unknown?
I am so glad all went well and you can email me photos privately at firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best
