Michael had surgery for his cleft palate last Thursday. He is recovering well. He hated the hospital (who doesn't?) and would not drink for them. We almost had to stay a second night. However, we consulted with the surgeon and all decided that he would probably do better at home. We arrived home on Friday night at 9 p.m. On Saturday, Michael started drinking like he needed to.

The surgeon did tell us a cute story. Michael was given some goofy juice. Then he drove to the operating room in a car that looked like an alligator. After Michael "drove" into the operating room, they were getting him out of the car and he stood up on the seat. While he was standing there, he danced and shook his booty for them. She said it was really funny and that everyone was laughing.

It has been almost a week now and Michael is back to his old self. He is giggling, playing peek-a-boo, kissing, hugging, and dancing.

Here are pictures from before and after the surgery:
