Update::Mackenzie's Neurology Appt....

She is now DOUBLED the birth weight. 7lbs 8oz. 19 1/2in long. her head circumference went from 27 to 37. Dr. said her head is a little big for her age. Meaning technically shes only 2 months old cause she was 5 weeks early. They are looking at her dishevelment as if she was born full term... The Veins that stand out on her head indicate that her head is possibly growing to fast, scheduling CT Scan in Orlando for fluids, if to much we will be referred to neuro surgeon. Possible that to much fluids is causing her pain, back of her head is bigger then front, meaning its not proportionate. i think thats about it..... so possible surgery in the future. expediting an appt for CT scan so we know sooner Im really not looking forward to getting the scan and finding out results. The more I think about it the more worried I get. I know there will have to be a surgery in the future and this might be it.

  • oh, DF had a larger head at birth and a couple other problems. had to have surgery at 2 days old. he had a shunt put in to drain the fluid in his head because it wasn't doing it on its own like it should and he has hydrocephalus.... he actually just had to have another surgery last july because that shunt stopped working :[ that's why i had asked what she had.

    your little one is very beautiful,, praying for you both and the family <3
