Tomorrow we take Megan to the Neurosurgeon. I’m really not that nervous about it; however at the same time the Neurosurgeon is just not one of those places that you want to take your little baby. Even if you don’t know where you’re going, you can tell what kind of Dr’s office you’re in once you walk in there. You definitely see some sad cases!
We had to take Evan there when he was about 3months. There was concern that he had craniosynostosis – where the plates of the head are already together at birth. They had to do an CTscan to rule it either in or out. Fortunately it was ruled out.
The pediatrician asked us to take Megan there because there’s concern that her head is growing too fast. The growth should make a nice plot & grow on an arch; however, her plot is starting to go straight up – an indication that’s it’s growing too fast. The pediatrician has already admitted though that it’s a tough measurement. You’re talking about taking a tape measure around a wiggling infant’s head. If there was a mark on their head that said “measure here” each time, it might be a little easier – but just being a tiny bit off from one measurement to the next one a couple months later & it could raise a flag for concern.
So if you think about it, just say a little prayer for us tomorrow. For me, a good appointment would mean I’m upset we had to waste a stinkin’ co-pay payment :)
