Missy Robertson Interview About Mia's Recovery


Recently the Director of the Mia Moo Fund had the opportunity to sit down with Missy Robertson and ask her questions regarding Mia and her recovery from surgery.

 

Here is the interview:

DIRECTOR: How is Mia doing after her recent surgery?

MISSY: This was definitely the hardest procedure and is the hardest recovery process she has had to undergo in her lifetime. She is doing better now and the doctors are pleased with her progress.

DIRECTOR: Did you not know what to expect regarding this surgery and recovery?

MISSY: Because she did so well, just a year ago, with what the doctors considered "the biggy bone graft surgery", we under estimated the seriousness of this surgery and especially the recovery on her little body.

DIRECTOR: Why was this recovery so difficult?

MISSY: For 4 weeks, starting just 3 days after surgery, I had to manually manipulate her jaw 1-3 times a day to move it forward and get it in proper alignment. This was a painful process on Mia and on us as well. As always in "Mia Style" she was a trooper through this difficult process.

DIRECTOR: What stage of recovery is Mia in now?

MISSY: She has been released by the doctors from moving the jaw. Now the jaw has to set in place for 7 weeks. In the middle of June, we will undergo surgery to remove all the devices that are in her mouth.

DIRECTOR: One last question that I'm sure everyone wants to know. Does Mia look different?

MISSY: Oh yes, a big difference! When we started this process her jaw was 15mm deficient and now her top teeth are peeking over her bottom teeth, right where they are suppose to be. People who have not seen her since surgery are going to look twice at this little beauty.
