OMG!! He's gorgeous!! Seriously, absolutely stunning!!

My son, Richard, has a seizure disorder that was discovered when he was 11 months old. His PCP sent him over to the MGH in Boston when he was 9months because of the enormous size of his head (I don't see it, but EVERY nurse and doctor comment on it). They ignored the size after looking at me, and measured his head, and laughed it off. Two months later I woke up to him twitching in his own vommit. He has macrosephaly, the right side of his brain is substancially larger than the left, and he has bi lateral subdural hemmoradges.

He did not walk until 14 months. It was very concerning to me to see his development slowly advance, but by 18 months, he has far surpassed his age.

Keep your head up honey. I'm not familiar with your sons conditions, but miracles do happen.

My son is still undergoing many more hospital stays and testing, and takes loads of medication, but medical science is amazing today, and the support of other moms is also VERY helpful!!
