Today we went for a check up with the neuro surgeon. She told me that Austin looked great. His head is measuring exactly how it should and his incisions are completely healed. She said that she anticipates the MRI to show Austin's brain fluffing out. She does not anticipate neurological issues with Austin! We discussed how Austin is favoring his left side of his head (i.e. always turned on that side, looking on that side) and she gave me the name of a pediatric physical therapist to see until we can get an evaluation with Early Intervention. Its something we want to be proactive with since we don't want it get any worse as he gets older. We don't see the surgeon again until August.
I got home and called the physical therapist and set up an evaluation for next week. So in the past 10 weeks, the "worst" news we have heard is that Austin may need physical therapy and could need glasses someday....I'll take that anyday!!!
Praising God for my wonderful blessings everyday...
