About Me

We found out at our 20 week ultrasound that our baby boy would be born with a cleft. This is his story.

Quick Update

Dallin's surgery went well this morning. He is in recovery now. He's been sleeping most of the day. We still can't get him to nurse, or eat anything for that matter. He's been awake a few times and acts pretty sad when he does wake up. It's so sad to see him like this! I am excited to get my happy baby back. I think he looks pretty good, considering what he went through. I cried and cried when I first saw him- he just looks so different! Dr. Morales did an excellent job, though, and we are excited to fall in love with this new smile.

1:00 am update: Dallin just nursed! What a champ! He just latched on like nothing has changed. The nurses were amazed and said he is way above the curve! Way to go, little man!

August 3rd, 10:30 am update

We are on schedule to come home today! Dallin is nursing well and is off his IV. Swelling in his face is at its peak today, which is hard for us to see. He doesn't look like himself at all. Dallin is still extremely tired and out of it. We are anxious for him to get back to normal!
