Hello Ladies! It's been awhile since I posted here as I am more of a facebook girl these days. I just wanted to let you all know that Lukas had his surgery for metopic craniosynostosis 3/18/13 and is doing fantastic. If it wasn't for the giant scar running ear-to-ear over his head you would never know that he had surgery. They only shaved a thin strip of his hair where his incision is so he still has his baby mohawk/pompadour hairdo. The days leading up to, during, and immediately after surgery were the hardest of my life due to the immense worry and anxiety I felt. He spent 4 and a half days in the hospital. I am so grateful and relieved that my baby is doing so well post-op. He is the most amazing, wonderful, joyful little soul in the entire world! For those that are interested, I have many pics and Lukas's story documented on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/selena.hair.

Lukas was born with moderate to severe metopic craniosynostosis with trigonocephaly. Corrective surgery performed March 18, 2013. We are on the other side!!!

I'm impressed with how well his head is healed up already. DH didn't get the zig-zag cut, it was straight across and his scar is really noticeable without shaggy hair. It doesn't look like Lukas' scar will be noticeable at all, that's so great. I bet it feels SO good getting that out of the way ((hug))

Awe, hugs Selena! I can't imagine having my little one in the hospital. I would be a nervous wreck. So glad he is doing well and that everything went off without a hitch.
