We found out he has Plagiocephaly. His little noggin is misshaped therefore making his ears uneven. Its not that bad right now but we were referred to a plastic surgeon (which we saw Tuesday) and he thinks a cranial helmet will fix this in 3-4 short months. We are waiting to hear back from our insurance to see if they will cover. Dr. said chances are they will NOT cover it (considered to be a cosmetic fix) and we are looking at 3-4k for the helmet and treatment. He said that we could do without the helmet and HOPE that his head corrects as he gets older but it could also get worse. I don't want to take those chances. I want to get it over with now and move on. I was very upset about this (even though I knew his head had a flat spot, I was just in denial) and I've cried my tears, but I know that things will be okay. He's small and wont remember. I just get my feelings hurt easy when it comes to my kids. Looking at these pictures now, I can tell how bad it is. In person he's moving so much you don't notice AS bad. my poor guy. Prayers that the helmet works, and works fast will definitely be appreciated!! Oh, I forgot to mention. this is not painful to him, it is not affecting his brain in anyway, and the "fix" will not be painful either. They are hopeful that it will not get any worse and no surgery will be needed. Thank you God!
We are taking 6 month pictures with the wonderful Amanda Adams with Day-Z Photography on Saturday, and I'm thrilled!! I can't wait to see what she comes up with. She's nearly 33 weeks pregnant and still working hard...she's super woman!
