Colin has graduated! After 10 weeks, Colin's head has been successfully remolded to the tune of 12 millimeters. His head WAS 15mm out of whack looking at diagonal front-to-back measurements, and now it is down to 3mm - which is considered normal and done. Those last few mms are the hardest to get and really, we're all set. His head looks great!
You can see his flat spot on HIS back/left - or the top/right of the picture.
He is having trouble adjusting back to sleeping at night WITHOUT his helmet on, believe it or not, so he's been waking a few times a night pretty upset. We've been weaning him off since this last Saturday night and last night (Weds) was the first night he's slept through the night again.
Ava inspecting for roundness...
All-in-all the helmet was a big success and we're glad to have done it. Now, to get that appeal letter out to Aetna to persuade them to reconsider their DENIAL of the service!
