For those of you who have been wondering how Ms. Yellow is doing, she is doing well  - to my eyes that is.  Swelling is down on her face - nose is back to normal size.  Won't really know the prognosis until her upper jaw wires are removed on Sept 24 - the moment of truth!  She still sounds a big garbled with her breathing - but since her upper jaw was pretty much pushed into her sinus cavity, she is doing well considering.  She lost 1 lb during her first 3 days after surgery - since then she has been gaining steadily  - good appetite.Syringe feeding was not fun - she fought me every mouthful - I was thankful when she could start lapping her food on her own. Fingers crossed that she makes a complete recovery.
