Check up

Trent had his 4 month check up in Elko this morning. He weighs 17.2 lbs and still at the top of the charts for his growth rate! That was about the only good part of the visit... he then received 3 shots. And, there was some concern at his last appointment about the way/shape that the right side of his head is growing. Our doctor wanted to wait until this month's appt. to see if it had gotten any better. Well as I already figured, it hadn't. There is a noticable difference in the shape of his left side vs. right side. There is all sorts of medical terminology to explain it but, in English terms... the seams of his skull bones aren't 'fusing' together right. This is what our pediatrician thinks is happening. We are going to be making an appointment at a craniofacial clinic in Salt Lake City within the next couple of days and taking him there for treatment. Please pray for him... that we can get in quickly (since it only gets worse as he gets older) and that he won't have to go through too much to get "things" taken care of.
