Sorry that I have been missing in action from blogging. My Wondrous Words today will explain where I have been.
This blog post was written so as to participate in Wondrous Words Wednesday a meme hosted by BermudaOnion.net.
So, as of a few months ago, I am raising a grandchild. Say 'Hi' to Donovan!
See the faint verticle ridge in the middle of his forehead? That is called a "Metopic Ridge." It is caused by the bony plates of the skull closing up too quickly.
Sometimes a metopic ridge is a problem and sometimes it is not. It can lead to the brain not having enough room to grow. One thing the doctor looks for is to see whether the brain is triangular from the top. Look at this photo... This condition is called "Trigonocephaly."
What today's words mean is that the baby will need an operation. But, we are just taking this one day at a time, and I think everything will turn out fine.
