A More Gentle Summer
Medically he is also enjoying a much calmer summer. True, he is currently undergoing a gradual widening of his palate, having been fitted with an expander device that spans and slowly stretches the roof of his mouth, and our medical team thinks he is just about ready for bone to be grafted into the gaps around the center of his maxilla. But at least no one is rushing us to schedule the surgery within the next month or so and, amazingly, Henry seems more comfortable with his palate expander than his sisters are with their common orthodontic braces.
Mostly he is gleefully looking forward to our annual summer trip to the beach, although he sure wishes we could bring our cat.
