Boston & Dr. Hadlock appt

This trip to Boston had been amazing! We meet with Dr. Headlock this morning and we are a little overwhelmed by all of the information that was received in such a short time span!
There are two surgical options available to Jordan. The first one is a two step process. This first step involves moving a nerve from the "good" side if her face to the "bad" side and letting that nerve regenerate for 6-9 months.  The second step then moves a muscle from her thigh and possibly a tongue nerve. After the second step the goal would be for the face to be asymmetrical and she would have a beautiful smile again!
The second option is to do a one step procedure that moves the tongue nerve/thigh muscle but the final result is not as dramatic as the 2 step.  
The plan is to digest this information, wait for her plan to be mailed to us, and then to make a decision. 
Please continue to keep Jordan and our family in your thoughts & prayers! We are off to enjoy some of Boston before our flight home.
