For those of you that aren't aware we do have a grandson that is 9 mo. old. My son phoned me this morning concerned as he had a received a call from my dil who had just come from an appt. with the pediatrician for Andrew's checkup. My son's question to me was "did I have a big head when I was a baby?" No, his head was normal as I recollect. In all seriousness the doctor is concerned that Andrew's head measurement since his 6 mo. to his 9 mo. visit is too great. As I recall when he was born his head measured 14 in. They have a Cat Scan scheduled tomorrow morning to hopefully dispel any concerns or problems. No, I am not privy to the 6 mo. measurement but I do know that today it measured "18 something." So his current head size isn't the concern but the growth rate since last visit. Whoops, I think I already said that. Please excuse me but I am a concerned Nanni at the moment.
I (being a disabled & retired R.N.) have lost all sense of rationability and nurse sense. Strange how we lose all perspective when we are concerned about a family member.
I keep reassuring myself someone mis-measured or documented the wrong head circumference at one of the two visits or both. I know one thing for certain, he has a perfect, beautiful head.
I shall pray and wait patiently for the results of the CT scan tomorrow. Please keep Andrew in your thoughts.
