It was a quick appt. They took different pictures from different angles. Brennan doesn't have to wear tape on his arm anymore! AND... he probably won't need the "stage 2"/second surgery!!! It's such great news. Dr. Lewin said that we will see how his ears look as he gets older and we can decide then if we need to make any changes, but for now, it looks great and she doesn't think she will need to do any touch-ups!!! We are so excited!!! His right ear technically has stage 1 microtia so she couldn't match his new ear perfectly to it, so there will be a difference with both ears... but that's fine with us. We don't expect perfection. We just wanted to give him 2 ears and we are so very pleased with how it looks. We will just wait and see when he grows up if she can do anything "non-surgery" related that might help match his 2 ears better.
Also, we don't have to have another appt. until 6 months from now (his 1 year surgery anniversary), then once a year after that.
Here are a few picts from today...
This is one of his pictures from Febuary, 1 month before his surgery. Notice his "little ear"
I needed to pin some of his hair back for the pictues to show his ears better
He looks thrilled doesn't he? :)
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers this past year. It's almost been 1 year since his first surgery. We are so thankful that his hearing has improved and his new ear is healing perfectly. We've had a tough year but seeing how well Brennan has done has been a huge encouragement to me and strengthened my hope! Thanks for taking part in our precious little guy's life!!!
