    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 whe 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.

    So proud that Mia is doing well. I have been praying for her. Her strength amazes me and her courage inspires me. I love you Mia and your mom and dad and the entire family! No doubt your beauty is shining through and your heart to help others get through what you've been through is such an act of unselfishness that will continue to bless others.... So proud of you! Thanks for letting God use you in mighty ways.

    Our daughter had jaw distraction (22mm) at 14 days old due to Pierre Robin. It was so hard. Mia is a brave little girl, as are you!

    We are moved and inspired by your courage and positivity Mia. We are huge fans of Duck Dynasty and the Robertson family. This is how we learned about Mia and have been following her progress all the way from Australia. This website will be well watched by us ☺ Sending love strength and well wishes for a smooth and speedy recovery xo

    a new bone product in San Antonio that will make painful bone grafting a thing of the past. Only a few Doctors have even seen this material before jeffrey.judiscak@gmail.com
