update #6

Judah is doing well! I think his post-op pain has paled greatly in
comparison to his not getting to suck his thumb! Which has made for
some long, long nights! Thankfully, he's pretty content during the day!
And I still cannot get over how different he looks! I know he'll be
swollen for a while, but I just didn't realize that his lip surgery
would affect the shape of his entire face. And his face still has no
expression...not sure when he'll be able to smile again. It will
probably take a few months before his muscles heal completely...at
that point we'll have a better idea of what he really looks like.

What a sweet boy. Praying for healing so quickly that can only be explained by God's wonderful healing power. Love and miss you all.

Pre-surgery Judah and post-surgery Judah are both so beautiful. He will get his smile back soon! I also bet his face will get a little more round in the cheeks once those muscles loosen. I can't way to see how much he's grown when we visit in September ;)

Poor little guy and poor mama. I pray he heals really soon and gets his smile back.
