Lilah's Journey - sutures are out

 Lilah's mom, Paige, has chronicled her daughter's journey to repair her Tessier Cleft. We have shared Lilah's story here, as the treatment has progressed. Lilah's final surgery was to repair her eye, complete a bone graft for her cleft and make some soft tissue changes. To see Lilah's journey unfold, be sure to read the first post, second post, third post and fourth post. And you can read Lilah's adoption story here.

Day 3 surgery

Day 5 Surgery


Today, Lilah had a little OR to remove all of her sutures. We can see her eye opening up and looking better every day. It will take about 6 - 8 weeks to see how it will look completely healed. Other than the scarring from the sutures, which will take a bit longer to fade.
