I'm so happy it is finally here. We have our first appointment with the Craniofacial department at the Childrens Hospital tomorrow. Hopefully we will get some answers & this worry that has taken over my life atm with subside. Not knowing is so hard. We are taking the kids to Disneyland next week (all the way from Australia) and I am so unorganized because this is ALL I can focus on . I feel like I am obsessed.
My previous post is here . http://www.craniokids.org/support/sh...ad.php?t=10134
Anyway the strange thing is that the side of her face that was pushed in seems to be popping out. I thought I was going crazy cause my DH said she looks the same to him but then my sister walked in the other day, looked at her at said "OMG her face isn't as pushed in today" I hadn't mentioned anything to her. AND she has been SOOOO much happier the last week. So that's good news. Hopefully it means no cranio.
BUT I am still concerned with how skinny her head is at the front compared to the back. The best way to describe it is like a pear shape. The width of her forhead is smaller than my 4 month old neices & Evie is 22 months. Her face bends around the side too quickly I think or is this just a normal variation of faces?? It's hard to see it in 2d photos but you can kind of see it in this one.
She also had huge bumps at the sides above her ears, which kind of show up in this one.
Oh and I found some pics of when she was born on my old computor. I knew her shape was bad but side on she looks like an alien!!
Anyway I will let you know how I go, I am excited and I feel really silly saying that but I am. I am also worried that they will also dismiss my concerns & not do a 3d CTscan. I will think of all of you wonderful mothers who have fought for your babies & I will do what I can to get one. I don't think I can let it go without knowing for sure that everything is ok.
Thanks so much for your support ladies.
