I would love support and feed back from other moms. My 2 yr. old son has a bigger head and of course I don't notice it because to me he is perfect. The doctor about 8 months ago suggested I have a CT scan done to make sure everything is ok with the brain and skull. I chose not to have this done as a second opinion from another doctor. She said some kids will grow out of proportion and the rest of his body will catch up later. I just couldn't come to peace with putting that radiation in his body when I felt in my heart that there was nothing wrong.
Now I am back at square one and more nervous than ever. He has been having problems with his eyes hurting him. My husband and I thought maybe he was watching tv too close, or maybe allergies. I took him to the doctor yesterday to find that his head is still growing at a faster rate, and at his age it shouldn't be. This could be nothing still, or it could be a parents worst nightmare. Could be fluid in the head, mass, or tumor. I try not to go there, but as a parent I am a wreck. I can't eat or sleep and cry often. I keep telling myself to stay positive, but that only goes so far. He is scheduled for an eye appointment on Thursday. We are also waiting for approval from his insurance for an MRI of his head. Prayers and encouraging words needed.
