Mia Robertson undergoes cleft surgery
Mia Robertson, the daughter of Duck Dynasty’s stars Jase and Missy Robertson, went under the knife on Friday to treat a cleft issue on her face.
Missy and Jase Robertson have been using Facebook to keep friends, family and fans up to date on the Mia’s progress.
“Almost done with all the pre-op appointments today. Was just told by one of the doctors that she was impressed with how well Mia is prepared for this major bone graft procedure for her cleft,” Missy Robertson wrote on Thursday.
“Surgery tomorrow at 11 a.m. We’re ready! God’s got this.”
Just after the surgery began, Missy Robertson shared a picture of a great many family members gathered at Mia’s bedside.
Noticeably absent were Mia’s grandparents Phil and Miss Kay, as well as her Uncle Willie.
“Surgeon’s [sic] has been working on Mia for about 5 minutes,” Missy Robertson captioned the photo.
“They tell us she’s doing great! Here we all are right before she was wheeled away. Thanks for the prayers.”
About an hour after that, Missy Robertson came back with another update: “Great news! All went well. <<Textbook>> is the word the surgeon used. We are praising God and waiting to go see our baby girl. Thank you for all the prayers!!!!”
Jase Robertson took to Facebook with his own message of appreciation, as well, writing:“I really appreciate the outpouring of support, thoughts and prayers for Mia. Out of surgery, doing great, considering. #Blessed.”
