Either way I am grateful for the wonderful doctors at Kaiser especially Dr. Geman Cheng who noticed it at Nathanael’s first appointment and then carefully watched him and then referred us to the neurologist when his soft spot did indeed close. I am also grateful for their top-of-the-line surgeons, Dr. Wexler (plastic surgeon) and Dr. Cahan (neurosurgeon), who took care of him and kept him healthy and alive! They’re so genuine and down-to-earth too! And I would be remiss if I didn't thank our Heavenly Father for keeping him safe!

* If you look at the picture to the right you can kind of see that his head just looks a little funny. On the left you can see that the closed fontanel (soft spot) wasn’t allowing his little head to expand as needed causing a funny football like shape. I am grateful for modern medicine (and faith, prayer and great surgeons!)
