Still turning.....

Well, lets just say that jaw distraction has definately been the most painful for Lauren. We have been turning the distractor now for about twelve days. She does not like it and it seems to be very uncomfortable. I love how the doctors said it "shouldn't hurt." After we turn it, she is fine, but while we are turning it it is unpleasant for not only Lauren but mom. Anyway, we will be turning it until next Monday when we will see Dr. Yamashiro and he will tell us how much longer it will need to be turned. Hopefully there will be an end in sight. She is doing great though. She started preschool and loves it. She is meeting friends and she is a TROOPER. We will keep you posted as we stop turning it and as we prepare for her next and final surgery of the year in October.

Poor girl! Thats just no fair. But if anyone can hack it, its Lauren. We're amazed at how well she has done so far. Hang in there!
