Soft spot is closed early. Reffered to a neurosurgoen. Scared to death.

So we had Adeline's four month check up yesterday. She's developing great, gaining weight, looking good, acting like a four month old should. She's perfect. However... her soft spot is gone, the pediatricians said the bones either grew together to cover the spot or they fused together. They couldn't be sure. They have reffered us to a neurosurgoen for a CT scan within the next 2 weeks.

I am terrified.

She's healthy, her head is a great shape and has looked good on the growth curve staying steady at around 30%. The doctor said surgery is a possibility and that would be done at around 9 months of age.

Does anyone have any experience with this or know anyone who has gone through this?

Thank you..

I knew of someone whos baby had the same thing. Everything turned out ok and no surgery was needed.

I hope everything is fine in your case. Please let us know what happens.

She is so cute and I love her hair!!

No experience but I had a friend who's son had this happen. He was about 5 months old but she also had a lot of other medical issues when she was pregnant so I don't know if that had anything to do with it. He was delayed in walking, talking and had some slight learning disabilities but you would honestly never know, he seemed like your average boy to me. Good luck! Update when you can! Don't google it eithet, let the doctor give information.

I have no experience. Sending you lots of good vibes and prayers, hopefully it ends up being nothing to worry about.

Thank you. We need the prayers right now. I had no complications during pregnancy and all seems normal with her. She is developmentally on track. This does not run in our families either... our appt is November 22. I'll update then.
