September 27, 2010


for all your thoughts and prayers and words of kindness for us and our sweet BabyGirl.
Her (Sagital suture spring assisted reconstruction) cranial surgery went perfectly and she's now back home recovering.
She didn't have any problems with anesthesia or morphine and was back to her alert and smiling self within twenty-four hours. 
She was laughing and cooing and the nurses and techs all fell in love with her.
I was so amazed by her resilience!
She was clearly the most posh baby on the floor in her little polka dot Maryjane's and she made the bandages on her head look like a precious white winter cap.
The girl has got some style!
Just because they were cutting into her head didn't mean she couldn't look fab!

There is a nasty little scar snaking it's way down the back of her head.
We can't bathe her for at least seven days (so we don't risk getting her incision wet) so her poor nappy scalp looks worse than it truly is.
Before we were discharged Prosthetics came down and fitted BabyGirl for her newest fashion must-have accessory for fall:  the helmet.
Pink, of course!  


  1. Hi Julia! I am so happy to hear that the surgery went well and that you and your daughter are both home safely recovering! Her pink polka dot Maryjanes sound adorable...I'm thinking of you!!!

  2. I am SO happy to hear that all went well! You all have been in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sure well's will make that cute pink helmet super glam!

  3. More prayers your way. I'm so glad to hear that everything went well. :)


Thanks for joining the conversation!
