Thank you for visiting. Braydon was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis at his 2 month check-up. I hope that reading his story, it will help out another family going through a similar situation. Also Ethan was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis at 1 week old.

1 Week Post Op

I can't believe it's been a whole week since Dr. Puccioni and Dr. Miller came in and told us that they were done.  We are on our last day of antibiotics.  The swelling is almost non-existent and it looks like part of the incision is already closed together without his stitches.

Braydon has started eating like his normal self and is even eating bananas with his cereal in the morning.  And we are eating Sweet Potatoes with lunch and dinner.  The only problem is he doesn't want to go to bed at night, take naps during the day or stay asleep in his crib at night.

So it's pretty much like the last time we took him home from the hospital.  He was even pooping like a newborn.  We go see Dr. Miller next week and then Dr. Puccioni the following week.  I'm hoping that he get the all clear and won't have to see the doctors on a weekly basis.  But I have to admit the results were much better than I hoped.  Both physically and developmentally.  Braydon's personality has changed so much.  He's so happy now (well most of the time).  He squeals with delight.  While it's music to my ears, it also breaks my ear drum.  Also we put Braydon on his tummy today and he rolled over for the first time post-op.

Here's some pictures 1 week post-op.


  1. So glad everything is going so well!!

  2. Braydon is such a gorgeous baby! I hope he's healing well & fast!
    Thanks so much for creating this blog. My 4 month old daughter has her first appointment tomorrow morning with the craniofacial surgeon for what I suspect is sagittal craniosynostosis, Reading about & seeing photos of a baby in a similar situation is comforting!
    Also, I grew up in Omaha & still think of it as "home" so you're story in particular somehow seems relatable to me. I'm not sure why.
    Thoughts & prayers for little Braydon!

  3. @SchwietRDH - I don't know if you'll come back and read this. I hope your appointment went well. Where in Omaha did you grow up in? I've lived here "all" my life. If you need anything don't hesitate to ask.
