Tomorrow at 8:30 AM, Charlotte is scheduled to complete her final major nose surgery. The flap which connects her forehead to the transplanted nose skin will be removed and some minor modifications will be made to the nasal structure.
Despite slower than anticipated healing of Charlotte’s forehead, where the skin for her nose was grafted from, we no longer expect that additional skin grafts will be needed to correct this. The skin should eventually heal with minimal scarring and she will wear bandages until the open wounds will heal.
Charlotte, as ever, is just holding up super during this difficult time. She is eager to complete the process and despite what must be tremendous pain, she is optimistic and goofy as ever. We are so blessed that she has such a positive outlook despite such adverse situations.
Beaumont will be doing a live twitter feed updating her progress throughout the surgery. You can follow along and share your support using the hashtag #healingcharlotte. Follow the feed online at: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23healingcharlotte&src=typd
I know we’ve thanked you before, but we can never thank enough the people who have followed Charlotte’s progress throughout this reconstruction and have showed their overwhelming support. We know that Charlotte is special, and the fact that so many that don’t know her personally have also developed an attachment and love for this brave little girl is so heartwarming and helps her and her family make it through it.
