Hi Y’all. I just realized I never posted a picture of myself. Well here I am with my son enjoying the outdoors at night. Some resemblance for sure but he’s turning in to my husband’s mini me in terms of looks, and height.
My son recently had his month follow up with his Orthotist and I’m happy to report that his head is in the cosmetic stage in terms head development for plagiocephaly. The difference between cosmetic and medical stage is determined by percentages. I’m not sure how the chart was decided but before the helmet, my son was 18%. Anything over 10% is considered medical stage for a helmet from my insurance. His recent appointment it was measured at 7%. His head has molded beautifully.
Even though he falls under the cosmetic stage the Orthotist said we should let him wear it for another month. So come January he will be officially helmet free. I’m so happy about this. I’ve been hit so much in the head with it that I even bruised once. Yeesh. Painful.
Another update is that his torticollis is gone. His physical therapist said he doesn’t need to do the exercises anymore. Glad about that but now I have to remember to count to him. He seemed to enjoy the counting part of the exercise. Now I just pick up one of his 123 books.
I also have some other news but it will have to wait until the next post.
