Meeting the Doctors

Well we went to Atlanta last Friday and met the Orthodontist that will be helping repair Jaron's cleft. He was a very nice doctor and seems to be very busy. He has just started the NAM and is staying in constant contact with the Dr. in NY that created it. He has 4 NAM babies right now and will probably have 10 or more by the time Jaron arrives. He told me to call and get an appointment with him as soon as Jaron is eating good so he can get the molding for his NAM and get it in his mouth right away. That will be about 1-2 weeks old. It took us an hour to get to the Children's Hospital of Atlanta and we will go there every week for NAM adjustments for 5-6 months until he has surgery. We plan to go to Dr. Cutting in NY for his surgery. He is a plastic surgeon and only specializes in Cleft lips. I go for more ultrasounds May 3rd and I will post them when I get home. I hope I can get a good 3D picture this time. I am so ready to see him and get his treatment started.
