Looks like Thomas' cleft op is being delayed :(

Dec 16th, 2008, 17:27 PM   #1
 
Arron rang the hospital yesterday as we were told that we should get a letter by christmas inviting us for a tour around the childrens ward, well we havent recived a letter so he rang them and was told they have a backlog of operations and so his could be pushed back to March now instead of Feb
im really upset about this as he is starting to suffer with it now, he is eating fine apart from today he got a whole chip stuck in the hole and we had to pin him down and use tweesers to get it back out and because it was on his gag reflex muscle thing he was chocking
its his speech i am really worried about as he cant make sounds due to having no roof of his mouth i no hes trying to copy things but he just cant do it and im worried with the op being put back another month it will take longer for him to get the speech therephy he is going to need.
i am hoping once ive had this scan and no baby is ok they might try and get him in for the op in feb again due to me being pregnant and having to stay there for 4 days with him.
Just hope he doesnt have anymore problems with food getting stuck as the hole is widening

thanks girls,
im affraid there is no way of getting it brought forward unless there is a serious problem with it like repet colds or infections and hes only had a cold once hes like me doesnt really get ill,
its my newest tattoo for Thomas which i now cant get finished till ive had this baby and will have to get another one done for his baby haha

Poor little mite, what a joke this NHS is sometimes. Just make sure when he does get a cold or gets ill you make a fuss, hopefully if you fuss enough they bring the op back to feb
