 Lilah’s mom, Paige, has chronicled her daughter’s journey to repair her Tessier Cleft. We have shared Lilah’s story here, as the treatment has progressed. Lilah’s final surgery was to repair her eye, complete a bone graft for her cleft and make some soft tissue changes. All the posts in this series can be found here.

Today, Lilah had a little OR to remove all of her sutures. We can see her eye opening up and looking better every day. It will take about 6 – 8 weeks to see how it will look completely healed. Other than the scarring from the sutures, which will take a bit longer to fade.
