A Little Blessing

My name is Brandon Burditt. I was born with a bilaterral cleft lip and cleft palate. I had three surgeries in my first year of life; but that hasn't stopped me. Some say I am a little charmer; I love to cuddle, laugh, and play.
This is my journey...

6 years goes by so fast!!!

Brandon continues to want to be referred to as Bubba. He is doing well overall. Sports continue to be his passion and he pushes himself to be the best he can be. He won several wrestling medals and trophies this year and overcame his fear of wrestling kids that are bigger than him. He is in kindergarten on an IEP which is helpful. He is struggling with language comprehension at school but interventions are in place to help him succeed.  He recently had some hearing problems again so T-tubes replaced his previous ear tubes to help correct the problem.   He has returned to Kellogg Eye center at U of M for some vision issues. Waiting to hear more about vision status at his follow up. We are doing some patching of one eye 14hours/week currently.  He continues on his nightly growth hormone injections. Cleft clinic is still once a year. No new surgeries for cleft repair scheduled at this time.  We all love him to pieces!!
