Referral for Neurosurgeon went through

Thank you all so much for the prayers form my last post. Our hospital called today to let us know the referral for the Neurosurgeon went through at CHOC, so we can call CHOC tomorrow to schedule Jackson's appointment. We've had everyone in our family measuring their heads and we are all above average, so that's positive, I just think the concern was the speed of growth he's growing at. I wonder what the Neurosurgeon will check and how he will do it. I'm assuming he will do a CAT scan or something? I have faith that everything will be okay...but I'm still praying with everything I have for my guy.

Hi, loyal blog reader here...just wanted to leave you a note. My niece (who is currently 2 years old and healthy) had the same issue when she was the same age as Jackson. Her head was measuring on the big side and growing rapidly. They, too, said it could possibly be fluid on the brain, but more likely that she "just has a big head" so she went to a neurologist just as a precaution. They did an ultrasound to check and she turned out just fine...just a "larger" head. The fact that your family tends to have above average heads, bodes well.

Good luck to you and your family! Best wishes!

My husband and I are in the beginning stages of TTC, so I found your blog just by Googling. Congratulations on your little miracle.
I am praying for you and your family during this challenging time!
