Update on Babyhead’s Surgery

I heard from the surgeons office today. His appointment is set for April 25th morning. So, expect more updates then.

I also want to thank all of you who have sent me messages and are keeping us in your thoughts. I am sure Babyhead will be ok…but I know DH and I are going to be a basket case until we can get him home.

    Hi…my daughter also has this name “birth mark” she is now 10 years old…for the past 10 years I was told it was a “birth mark” and that the cause was a build up of fluid around that area due to the fact she was a large baby. Today I went to the doctor ,a dermotologist, so she could have a mole removed and he told me it was not a birth mark but, was this Nevus Sebaceous and that it would later turn into skin cancer! To say the least I am very upset. He told me that we should not worry it is not uncommon and that they usually don’t remove it until the child is 19 or 20. I am very upset that this has went on for 10 years. I was just wondering if you could share any information that you have.

    Thank you

  2. Thanks for the update, I have been thinking about you since I first read about the upcoming surgery.

    I have no doubt you’re both going to be a basketcase. I know I always was with the Elfen child had surgery. On the bright side, when it’s done and you know for sure that he’s okay, it will be the biggest sigh of relief you will ever know.

    Hang in there, and please do continue to keep us updated!

    i read your original post and now the follow up, scary to think your little boy has to have it removed.
    my son has lots of spots and freckles so i’m familiar with all the warnings. i was told to bring him into a dermatologist every year to be checked head to toe!!

    it is important for all of us to have someone else inspect our back and under our hair…

    you’re right, he’ll be fine but mom and dad may be a bit worse for worry! hang in there….keep us posted!
