Prayer Request

IMG_0080

We had a CT Scan done this morning to see why Gideon’s head is growing so quickly.  It’s also a bit asymmetrical.  Of course, it all looks perfect to me, but the doctor said we really should check it out.  He was great about emphasizing that it could just be genetics so I wouldn’t worry too much.

We already have our first praise…he stayed still and didn’t cry, so they did not need to sedate him.

Hooray!

We should hear something in the next few days, so we are asking our friends and family to pray for God’s peace…and good results.

I know there have been several babies needing the helmets to re-shape their heads, but does anyone else have kids whose head circumference is off the charts (by quite a bit)?

Just wondering.

Amanda,
Aiden's was on the high side of the charts as well. The Dr. said that it could be genetics and we would just need to keep measuring it and watching it as he grows within the next year to see if there are any signs of huge growth and then we would need to take the next steps... whatever that may be. To me it looks perfect as well. I think it's just a part of the Ethiopian genetics. Better to be proactive though.

We just brought our little guy home, and his head is very large in comparison to his other measurements. He isn't worried at all, and said it was part of the Ethiopian Genetics as well!

He is a cutie...and yes perfect. Movie stars have big heads ya know!!!!
