MICRO MIRACLE FOUNDATION
Logan was born on 4th February 2015, a perfectly healthy baby. Looked exactly like his older brother, Luan. From birth, Logan slept through the night, and was a very happy baby. Growing fast and reaching his milestones.
Yes, I tried breastfeeding Logan from day one, after a lot of tears and sleepless nights, feeling like I have failed my little boy, I had to stop, he was getting hungry, and so I opt for the bottle, with expressed breast milk. On his 6 week check-up everything was normal except his testicles - undescended testicles.
Logan went for all his vaccinations when it was due; the last vaccination was his 3 month (12weeks) vaccination. Just after 3 months, Logan’s head started deforming, which his left side being flat. However a baby’s skull is still growing at this age so we didn’t took too much notice at first. On about 4 months, his milestones started falling behind. When at 3 months he could hold his head up, he couldn’t do it anymore.
In July, Logan was booked to go for a minor operation to descend his testicles (Bilateral Orchidopexy). After the operation we asked for a paediatrician to examine his milestones and head deformity. Dr Rene De Gama saw him and advised that his fontanel had closed prematurely. An appointment was booked with a Neurosurgeon for the following week where Logan was then diagnosed with Craniosynostosis. Surgery was booked for 21st August where they would break his skull and open the fontanel so that the brain would have space to grow.
