Foam Dome

NO MORE HELMET!!! That thing was starting to smell like a middle school boy's locker room. You can imagine how bad it would have been if he'd of been wearing it this summer. Wyatt and I made the trip this morning to the orthotist for a head scan and evaluation. All major issues have been resolved. My son now has a symmetrically-shaped head. He no longer has a bulge on the right side of his forehead, has only a slight degree of flatness on the right rear quadrant, and his ears are aligned well.

Below is a copy of the scan we got today. The line in red is from January, when we first started the process, and the blue line is the one from today. They lowered him in a small U-shaped tube and in 2 seconds, had a 3-D scan of his head. He has made such great improvements and was so patient with the entire ordeal of the last three months. We often joke about how it would have been if Parks had been the one to need the helmet. WOW!!

That's awesome!! I found with both of my boys that their heads continued to improve even after we finished helmeting. Enjoy kissing that sweet smelling perfectly round new head!
