In need of prayer

Updated: Mar 12, 2018

Jeff and I took Brett to the Dr. because we believed his formula needed to be switched. We went into the Dr.'s office getting more than we bargained for. After doing an x-ray on Brett's scull, due to suspicion from the Dr., we've discovered that Brett has Craniosynostis, the form he has is Sagittal. This is basically where the scull is trying to fuse together in the back, prematurely. As you can imagine, this prevents proper room for growth of the brain and if left untreated can result in several problems for a child.


There are different severities of this type of disease. It can either be mild and monitored with supervision over the years, more severe - wearing a helmet for the first year of the child's life, to severe - surgery would be needed to correct this situation. On Tuesday at 1:00 pm we have an appointment with the Pediatric Neurologist at St. Louis Children's Hospital to discuss what the next step is. We're praying that the Dr. will say this is mild form of it and doesn't require surgery, only constant monitoring over the years.


Please keep us in your prayers as we are praying for our little man and that he will make a full and beautiful recovery from this little "stepping stone" we've got to overcome )

We'll take some good news!

Update on Brett from today: (Previous one below) He just visited with Dr. Bridwell, Orthopedic Surgeon at Washing University – We couldn’t possibly ask for better news. He saw no need to do an x-ray.
