Hey Ladies,
I just got the call for my son's surgery time on Monday morning. 6am arrival time. He is having a freulectomy (tongue tie release)

He was severely tongue tied at birth, we had his tongue clipped at 2 weeks, but then as he started eating solid foods we discovered he also suffers from a posterior tongue tie. So in essence his tongue was completely restricted at birth.

He has been in feeding therapy for 3 months now with some improvement as far as jaw strength and bite, but no amount of therapy was going to make his tongue grow...so surgery it is. I am happy the surgery is happening before he really starts talking. His tongue is so restricted he can't come anywhere near to touching the roof of his mouth or sticking his tongue out past his bottom teeth. So hopefully he will have the opportunity to learn the sounds correctly when he does start talking.

Any well wishes are greatly appreciated. The surgery is only about an hour, but I am already nervous.

Thanks!

Awwww I wish him a happy quick surgery! Its so nerve-racking, because they are just so little. But this will certainly help him. Both my boys have had minor surgery. Ryan's was 4-24-12 for (he was 2) for a testicular hernia. It was scary, and I was worried that one of his testicles would be "out of commission" but he was absolutly fine, the surgery lasted about 1-1/2 - 2 hrs. In recovery they gave him unlimited popsicles LOL and I let them. Luke was 8 months when he had to have an abcess lanced, it was only 15- 20 minutes, but it was horrifying because it was positive for MRSA. Its been fully irradicated- it took a good year, but he is in perfect health now. ( we had to bathe him in chlorhexidine 3-5 times/day, rip out carpets, bleach/sanitized the house several times a day. Had to change the bed sheets everytime he slept so naps and night, as well as his clothes) The scary part was that he had to stay over night to recieve antibiotics through IV and I had to stay with him to make sure the IV didnt get wrapped up or ripped out UGGGG!!! Poor baby! But the hospital was great. I know you will be worried, but it should go smoothly, just like Ryans. *hugs*

(((hugs))) mama!!! It's hard not to worry about our babies, but thankfully, they are so resilient when they're that young. Two of my sons had to be put under for minor procedures at a young age and they never acted as if anything bothered them once they shook off the anesthesia. Praying all goes well for him and the recovery is an easy one!

Praying for a smooth surgery and recovery for your little guy and praying you can get through it without worrying too much! (Pretty much impossible, I know)

Hoping for a smooth surgery and quick recovery, poor kid! That has to be tough with it being his mouth.
