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.

WOW - It's been 2 weeks!

Time surely does fly when you're having fun, right?!?!

I can't believe it's been 2 whole weeks since Terry and I were waiting around Children's Hospital Surgical waiting area.

Braydon is doing great.  He's still not sleeping but I was told that was "normal".  It will probably take up to 6 weeks for him to get on a normal schedule again.  It seems like his development has increased in speed.  He's reaching for everything, including the tubing for my breast pump and every single cord.  He also wants to type on the laptop's keyboard if we are holding him on our laps while sitting at the computer.

Braydon also is making bubbles and "spitting".  He will also do Raspberries on any body part he can get his mouth on.  And if he's not in contact with skin, he will make the noise.  I can't believe that on Sunday he will be 6 months old.  It seems like only yesterday that he was born.

I'm scheduled to go back to work on February 1st, but I might go back next week for half days.  That is if Braydon's doctor thinks it's a good idea and I clear it with my boss.  Braydon has really bad separation anxiety and sometimes even Terry can't console him  He wants his mommy all the time and it's going to be heartbreaking if he does that when I go back to work.  So hopefully if we take it slow, he'll get over it.  At least I'm hoping that's the case.  Hope everyone is staying warm this winter and if it's Summer where you are at, well color me jealous.
