This blog was started to document our walk through jaw distraction surgery and how it is helping Faith overcome some of the serious issues she has faced including obstructive sleep apnea. After researching jaw distraction surgery, we could only find one other T-18 child to have this procedure done. We hope our story will help other families dealing with Trisomy 18 and we look forward to the day God completes the work He has begun in Faith.

HORSE PILL Update
Faith on our deck today.
SO yesterday we had Faith's hospital visit to have a pill inserted into her small intestines. This pill can disintegrate so if it gets stuck, it will dissolve. Well, I have not posted the picture that Jesi had me take this morning, but this huge pill made it through Faith overnight. It was no fun to clean up the mess, but it passed through without any big problems. Faith was uncomfortable at times, but now we know the camera pill can be inserted the next time she bleeds so we hopefully see the where the bleeding is occurring inside of her small intestines. I would post the picture, but it is rather disgusting as I am sure that you can imagine. The procedure was a success and hopefully will help us find a solution to this bleeding issue. Faith has now had 5 blood transfusions.
