Appointment # 2

Hugo had another appointment with the cranial technologist today. It went really well and was really quite fast, thank goodness! We were just going in for him to get 3-D pictures taken of him. Then with those 3-D pictures they make a replica of his head and then from that change it slightly to make a doc-band (helmet) for his head. We are looking forward to getting it out of the way and being done with it. I am kind of excited to get the band and get it decorated or painted. Does anybody have any ideas?
Anyways, here are some pictures I took of him getting his pictures. The green/blue ones are of the actual 3-D picture, it was SO cool to see on the computer, they could move it all around- I am amazed and grateful for the technology we have available for us today!

2 more weeks and he gets it! I'll keep you posted!

He is sucha good boy to sit still for the nurse while she covers him in a sock net!
I am sure you will make the helmet look cool whatever you guys do. I bet Shawn has thought of some good ideas also.
I am glad you com proceed with Dr visits.

That is soooo cool. Technology just amazes me these days. I'm sure you'll think of some very cute ideas for decorating it.

I hope he is OK. He is good to sit with that thing over his head, Emma would have freaked out. He is still so adorable, He gets bigger everytime I look at your blog.
