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...

Pharyngeal Flap Surgery

So this surgery was a hard one!  I haven't seen my little man in so much pain since his palate repair when he was one.  The pharyngeal flap surgery was to help correct his speech and prevent him from losing air through his nose when he talks.  Surgery was in Columbus and he stayed overnight.  He was in quite a bit of pain and needed pain meds every few hours to help manage the pain right after surgery.  Recovery consists of soft diet for 3 weeks, no speech therapy for 3 weeks during recovery, and no sports/low activity level for 3 weeks as well.
