Flor's new mouth

I wanted to show a before and after pic of Flor's mouth.

The first day I met Flor a few months ago:
And Flor now!

Image Hosting by PictureTrail.comSay hello to the new and improved Flor de Maria! This is an amazing story! There was a surgeon volunteering with the group from the States last week that is a specialist in this sort of thing. On the day before the group left, we took Caterin to get her walker that they GAVE to her, and on the advice of another doctor, we brought Flor to see if he might fix her lip. She only had her soft pallet done just before Mother's day. We were told not to get our hopes up, but one look at her and he said it wouldn't be a problem at all!! So, the next day we took her in and she went into surgery kicking and screaming, just like she came out 3 hours later. She's wearing splints on her arms to keep her from touching her face for three weeks. What a difference. She looks like a completely different girl!!
