Well, Spencer had his head scanned again last Friday, and his asymmetry had increased from 9 at the beginning of August to 12. So we have to have Spencer back in his helmet for another 30 days. 😦
However, it has been immensely helpful since Spencer has learned to crawl! He’s such boy, and he’s always bangin’ into stuff and whackin’ his head. With the helmet on his head, he doesn’t get hurt or get upset! It’s been great.
So while it bites that Spencer is back in the helmet, it rules that we don’t have to worry about his head getting hurt. We would never put his helmet on just to protect his head, but it’s an added benefit to a not so pleasant situation. 🙂 (lest you think we were the overly cautious type parents)
