The Disney Store and a doctor update
We almost didn't make it to the Disney Store on Lilah's birthday... due to one of her stubborn streaks that morning. Eventually, she decided to cooperate and we headed out. Lilah chose this princess sundress and a very large and loud singing Ariel doll.
Yesterday, we saw the plastic surgeon for a check up. The fills are done! He now wants her tissue expander to sit there for eight weeks and we should be hearing about a surgery date soon. We do know that everything will not be done at once, so there will be a few surgeries.
The first surgery should improve her looks as the Opthamologist fixes her eye and the Plastic Surgeon fills some of the sunken area with fat and tissue.
They want to fix her nose on the right side as well and this will likely be the most difficult area to fix. They take some of the cartilage from her ear to do this and right now the cartilage is just too soft, she needs to be a little bit older. Also, the craniofacial surgeon will want to do a bone graft in her facial cleft at some point, but right now feels that she is too small.
Zoe loves to dress up. Her favorite pick from her shopping trip at the Disney Store was these shoes. She wears them all day, everyday and begs to wear them out of the house. They even have a little heel. She also got this veil for her birthday and wears it all the time... she even tried to wear it to church.
You can always tell when Zoe is feeling pretty. She will twirl around, put her hands on her hips and pose. You would think she is a runway model.
