Thank you all :)
Surgery is in the AM. I will most likely be spending the majority of the time at the hospital while Cassidy recovers. I will be sure to post an update when I get home as I don't have internet access with my phone.

Hi all:
I stopped at home for a little bit and wanted to let everyone know that Cassidy's surgery went well. They may move her out of PICU tonight to the regular floor and if all goes well, she may come home as early as Monday. She is very swollen and miserable at the moment.

Hello! My son was just officially diagnosed today with metopic craniosynostosis at nearly 17 1/2 months. His condition is so mild, which is why it was missed by his previous pediatrician's group.



We met with the pediatric neurosurgeon today who doesn't think surgery is necessary but wants to see him again in 6 months. We also have an appointment soon with a pediatric ophthalmologist to confirm whether or not there is intercranial pressure.



Are there any mommas on here who's child has a mild condition and who has elected not to perform surgery?



Also, below are some photos of my son.

I haven't posted in soooo long.




I took Booger back to his plastic surgeon and they aren't doing another surgery in three months! I'm so ecstatic. They actually don't even want to see him for six months. He'll be almost a year old.




Merry Christmas to me. :D

I haven't had the chance to upload all the photos I've taken of Cassidy throughout her surgery, but here is one of her 3 weeks post-op!dec12009.jpg
