I just got the expected call from Alayna's pediatrician, NOT with the news I wanted.
Some of her head plates have indeed fused. These WILL require surgery to break them apart. If it is not done, as her brain grows it will cause pressure and problems.
I'm all emotional just thinking about them cutting open my sweet little baby girl's head. And the pediatrician using words like, "invasive" "recovery time", "scar", and "night in the ICU" did not help one stinking bit.
Since there is no specialist around here it will require a couple trips to Salt Lake. First for a consultation, then for the actual surgery.
I don't know much beyond that. Supposedly I will hear back in the next few days about an appointment time for the consultation and the surgery will take place, most likely sometime within the next several weeks.
She is just so dang sweet, happy, and so very good.
My day is ruined and so is my make-up.
