Around 2 years ago, we discovered at our anomaly scan that Isaac would be born with a cleft lip.
In July 2014, we welcomed Isaac into the world and the mayhem began as a family of 4.
In November 2014, at 4 months old, Isaac endured an operation to repair his lip. He's now left with a small scar on his lip, however we are so impressed with his repair!
Isaac is now approaching 2 years old (yeah, he's a real life little person and no longer a baby!) He's happy, independent and always has a smile on his face. He's a very different temperament to his big brother; he's far more relaxed and resilient. Nothing is ever a challenge for him and he follows his big brother's example, usually into mischief! Isaac is a pleasure to be around and I'm so proud to call him my son!
I'm often asked if he's "sorted" now, however Isaac will have to undergo another operation when he's around 8-10 years to repair the gap in his gum. A bone graft will take place and I'm not looking forward to a hospital stay and witnessing him enduring pain. Isaac is a tough cookie and I'm sure he'll take it in his stride!
We've not recently participated in any fundraising, however I'm hoping to do a fundraiser later this year. Watch this space! :-)
