...and after.

We thought that you all might be interested in seeing some before and after pictures of Jack. The change is pretty amazing and a majority of the shaping is supposed to come from the band or "helmet" that he will get in about 2 weeks.

I have been thinking about the amounts of skull that was taken out and I would guess that he has a little more than 50% of his skull left. It is very nerve racking to hold you child and know that there are 5 soft spots on his head. There is the large spot on the top of the skull that was removed and then there were 4 "flaps" cut. They are triangle shape and begin right under his incisions and point down; they are between 1 and 1/2 inches and 2 inches in length.

He was a bit fussy this afternoon. I am guessing he was just uncomfortable. This evening he seems to be himself.
