Yes, yes, big day coming up in the Bunch household...mostly Colton's! This Thursday, June 18th (barring any unforseen circumstances, of course), Colton will have the first of a few surgeries to repair his cleft lip and palate. This first surgery will be to repair his lip, the palate repair will be done when Colton is closer to a year old!
The surgery will be done at UMC, a place with which Colton is very familiar! His surgery will likely be the first one in the morning, though we don't find out the exact time until the day before. Dr. Hurst will perform the surgery and we hear he's OUTSTANDING! It's expected to take about 2 hours (if my memory serves...which, it doesn't always!) He will have to stay in the hospital for one night for sure. Any longer would only be if he doesn't respond well. But we optimistic Bunches just know that everything is going to go perfectly! Dad already had a chat with Colton over his bottle this morning and told him everything he should expect, so that he won't be nervous. :) And of course, this very protective mommy will be there every minute! So enjoy these pictures of the smile we will all miss more than we ever thought possible. And please keep Colton in your prayers!
