2 months out

Yesterday was the 2 month anniversary of the surgery.  That means 2/3 of the way through the helmet wearing.  Mallory is doing extremely well.  Its like nothing happened.  The only clues are the large pink puffy helmet on her head and the zig-zag incision through the head.  Well, okay, those are pretty big clues but looking at her daily life you would never know the trauma she went through only 2 months ago.  Today we had another follow-up appointment.  Her surgeon said she is healing perfectly both inside and outside.  The bones should be set very soon so in one month time the helmet is gone!!  YAY!!  Really, the helmet hasn't been such a big deal.  She sweats more but it has helped while she learned to walk.  I know she will be excited to get rid of it.  When I take it off for baths she just sits there and rubs her head.  Too cute!  She is growing up so quickly.  She is now walking, attempting to run, and has started talking.  Words include: dog, dada, thank you, and bird.    She also understands so much of what we ask her to do.   Sniff- sniff- so sad knowing she is my last one.  Here is a picture of our family portraits taken a week ago.  Can't even see the incision from the front!
  Her next appointment is 3 months from now so hopefully we will have nothing new to report for a while!!  Thanks for reading.  Enjoy the rest of your summer.  We hope to do the same.
