This site is specifically for parents of kids with clefts being treated at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, but I hope that there will be information that is helpful to all parents of kids with clefts. If you are just starting to learn about clefts, I would suggest starting with the "General Information" topic and going from there.

How do I keep track of all those medications?

This is the question I had after my son's second surgery. In addition to his lip and nose repair, he had tubes put in his ears, so he had pain medications, antibiotics, ointments, ear drops, saline drops, and I don't even remember what else. I'm couldn't keep track of all of that on a normal day, let alone the day after coming home from the hospital. Thankfully, my mother is more organized than I and made me this handy-dandy spreadsheet to keep track of everything.

If you're like me and your creations on Excel aren't so pretty, you can download the file from the Kids With Clefts Utah group page on Yahoo! under the documents tab. It's saved as "Ethan's Med Log."
