The last 8 weeks have been very interesting.
On April 8th, Lauren got her pallet expander installed. She came home with a calendar and over the next 4 weeks, were to turn the key 21 times.
Initially, this didn’t bother Lauren too much. She said that it’s uncomfortable and she had a bit of a lisp.
Over the 21 turns, when she was asked if it hurt, she would explain that the bridge of her nose hurt. Which makes sense when you remember that your pallet is the bottom of your sinus cavities.
After the first 21 turns, it was back to Dr. Bozek’s office. On June 6th, she was checked out, things were progressing well and we needed to do 21 more turns.
Each turn spreads her pallet by 1/4mm. It’s not a lot. After 42 turns, that’s 102mm (10.2cm)!
