Bryson ~ Surgery ~ September 12, 2011

Bryson is having surgery on Monday, September 12th. to close part of his skull that did not close properly and by now should have after Craniosynostosis surgery in 2007. 

Here is a little information about Craniosynostosis. Infants are born with skulls composed of six separate bone plates, separated by areas of soft fibrous tissue known as sutures. (The areas where sutures intersect are the fontanelles, often referred to as the “soft spots.”) Under normal circumstances, sutures expand through early childhood to allow the skull to accommodate the growing brain. The sutures then fuse at specific pre-programmed ages throughout the course of life, resulting in the round head shape we're accustomed to seeing. If, however, one or more of the sutures closes prematurely, craniosynostosis (abnormal growth and development of the skull) is the result.


Please Pray for Bryson, the doctor's and his momma and daddy!

You all have my prayers to our Almighty God, that Bryson will not suffer any complications, and that he will heal totally.

Of course. He will be protected by an army of angels and Jesus himself will guide the hands of the Dr.

I am so glad his surgery went OK, poor little guy.

I know how worrying it is when you have a child (or grandchild) who needs surgery. My granddaughter (who was a micro preemie) had surgery when she was almost 4 years old to remove a tumor on her liver. That was scary, but she too came through just fine.

There had been some concern when she was about two and a half, that due to the preemie birth that her skull was closing too soon! But they decided to watch and wait a bit longer and it was okay, No surgery! Yay! (we thought) And then the other thing popped up.

She is all fine and dandy now. She's 10, completely cancer free and tall for her age! Go figure!!

Best wishes for a quick recovery of your little sweetheart!
