We have another good news for you today! Jian’s recovery went so well that he was discharged immediately the morning after his surgery. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to grab a photo of him just before he left. But here’s a photo of Mona, our social worker, who scheduled Jian’s return for next week! We’ll make sure to catch you up with his updated cleft-free photo! Until then, please keep Jian’s complete healing in your prayers.

Claus

Philippines - Age 2
May 20, 2020

“I feel nervous and excited all at the same time!” Jucille told us how she felt as Claus was in the OR for his surgery. However, she was encouraged that the momentary pain and discomfort Claus will be experiencing would all be worth it. He will finally be cleft-lip free for the rest of his life! The medical team worked to repair Claus’ cleft lip first and will wait for a couple of months before working on his palate. Jucille was relieved when his son was brought back to the ward moments after. Thank you for praying!

Eli is back for a follow-up! His wounds are healed and his stitches are ready to come off. “I’m so happy to see that it worked out well, including the shape of his nose!” says Dr. Andrew. Part of the challenge of doing a cleft lip surgery is to make sure that the child’s nose looks even. The next step for Eli is to have cleft palate surgery in August. It will be just before his birthday, which means all his procedures will be done before he turns one! What an amazing birthday present that you can give to Eli! Thank you for your support!

Candice is definitely a brave baby! She was a little upset when we placed an IV line on her. But she had her sweet smile back and we were friends again just a few minutes later. She went down in the OR for a cleft lip surgery and, moments later, Jayvie was called back down to see Candice in surgery! We are so grateful for a successful surgery. We couldn’t do what we do without your help. Thank you!
