Update on Dino (and a winner!)

Dino had his appointment with the neurologist yesterday. The doctor had him answer questions, perform various activities. When he saw the bump on his head, he named a few odd genetic disorders which he, thank God, discounted almost right away. And his final diagnosis? 

He is not sure.

He thinks it may just be a delay that he will grow out of or there is a mild chance the scar on his head is putting pressure on his skull. So for now, we are going to continue the speech, physical and occupational therapy and then schedule an MRI to see if the scar is doing anything. The doctor is not too concerned about Dino--he is leaning toward a delay he will grow out out of but he wants to be sure.

I am just so happy it is not something like his physical therapist thought and now we can move on and help him get past his delays.

Thank you so much for all your your support on this. You have no idea how much your kind words and prayers have helped!

And now we have a winner for my very first giveaway:

Wonderful! I love specialists, they can make so much anxiety melt away...

JCK said...

I am SO happy for you!! That really is great news and so much more balanced than the physical therapist. Switch physical therapists?? I'm just a big believer in not being around people who CAUSE extra anxiety.

Your little DINO is a delight and I can't wait to hear more DINO stories. :)

Glad to hear your positive news! My olest son (well, all my kids) had big heads when they were born, but so much so that our doctor was concerned and sent us for an MRI and brain scan. They didn't find anything, I just assume they all have big brains! :)

Thanks for stopping by on your layover. Come back and visit anytime!

PS - yeah for the winner, what a fun giveaway!

That sounds like good news!

Auds at Barking Mad said...

I am so pleased that all seems OK with Dino right now and the doc doesn't think it's anything more that warrants invasive care and nothing more than just keeping an eye on it. We've been keeping you guys in our prayers!

Jacque said...

I've been wondering about his appt. I'm glad it went well and hopefully the MRI will be fine too.

ria said...

Well thank the Lord for that! I'm sure all will turn out well. We'll continue to pray... :)
