The consult with the neurosurgeon went very well. She gently but efficiently explained to us the procedure and answered all of our questions.
He will be in surgery for about 3-4 hours. The first day he will spend in the ICU. He will be in the hospital for 3-4 days. There will be an incision from one ear, over the top of the head, to the other ear. She will take out the part of his skull which is fused shut and make some other cuts in it that will help reshape his head. More than likely he will need a blood transfusion. Nick is going to try and donate for him but there is a tight timeline.
He will not have to wear a helmet but because there will be no reconstruction (the bone will grow back in time) we will have to be very careful with his head, especially when he starts crawling and etc.
Well, that's what I know for now. I'm off to try and get some sleep.
