Number 4 and Metopic Ridge.......
All health except for his poor head. I noticed it when I first held him and touched his forehead that it felt like the two front plates of his skull were over lapping and none of the other kids ever had this.
On the one month visit the Doc didn't mention anything so on the two month check-up I asked the wife to bring it up. We were told to bring him to a neurologist and get him evaluated for Metopic Ridge. The wait alone was rough to see Dr.Bowman out of Chicago Children's memorial hospital. The best part was we have a friend who was a nurse for Childrens and told us the plastic surgeon who remove a birth mark off of our second daughter has taken this up as "his baby" of surgery's.
I think the biggest stress so far is me freaking out he's going to get sick and get a pushed back surgery date and that might mess up all the blood that has been setup. I guess a baby's blood factors can change and he needs to get a blood test two days pre-op to see what donation will be used. So yeah a delay is not wanted.
Cranio Kids forum it will help. For now it's about eight days out and it can't come soon enough and just wish Charlie the best.
