We Did It!

Since my February 26, 2010 post, You Should See The Other Guy, if you are one of my (three) regular readers, you may have noticed after my tag line I have been counting down the 100 days of Lucas wearing the Doc Band.

Today is Day 85 and it is Graduation Day!! 15 days early!! We are so excited.

Your head has moved almost 11 millimeters, which we have been told for a baby that started treatment so late (you were 8 1/2 months when we began this process) is superb!

Call me biased, but in my eyes your head was always perfectly shaped, but I would be lying if I said I didn't see a noticeable change in the shape and yes, even improvement in the symmetry of your facial features.

I can't praise the staff at Cranial Technologies in San Diego enough for their care and courtesy, but it's really Lucas himself that was the trouper. He made this so easy for us because he never once fussed (unless he got too hot) over having to wear the Doc Band around the clock. I don't even think he noticed having it on and in some ways might even miss it.

I grew during the last 85 days too... I learned that I will do whatever is necessary to help my child and that no matter what our future faces with him, we are proud of him.

I learned that your family, friends and even strangers on the street might just surprise you with their kindness, support and understanding.

I also learned to have a little more compassion for those that have way more serious health issues.

We have come a long way and I am thrilled to be done with it!

The best is yet to be.

Yay! My niece Sydney also is done early! And both of their little heads were perfect to me! It's funny...I actually forgot that she had it on after awhile and when she didn't wear it, it was suprising to me...do you know what I mean?

I'm so proud of u all for getting through this tough time. Well, I guess it wasn't as hard as you thought it was going to be. I'm so glad that it helped his head. He is one strong little guy!

I always find that going through tough times make you so much more sympathetic to others who have to do the same. There's a shared understanding with people who have had to get through something painful/challenging.

Thanks for all the love... it was a VERY long 85 days for this mommy, but we made it and it was with the support of all of our family and friends.
