Inside the operating room
Thanks for your detailed report about the actual operation. You answered all of my questions as to how cleft lips are repaired. Also congratulations on making it through your light-headedness in witnessing an operation. They would have had to pick me up from the floor. How are the patients reacting to having been operated on? Do they seem aware that something has changed? Will there be pain for them in the healing process or are they medicated for their recovery? Thanks for your service in this good cause.
