A wee operation

Our wee man is having a wee operation today, to remove a malformed vein smack bang in the middle of his forehead (and they're also snipping his tongue tie while they're in there).

Thomas was born with an odd malformed vein in his head - it looks like three little blue ink spots, right in the middle of his head. Many people ask if he's drawn on himself, or if he's whacked his head on something. It changes from time to time, gets bigger, gets raised etc, but the point is, it doesn't go away. It isn't a birthmark that'll fade in time.

So we made the decision to have it removed. Mainly because its unpredictable and they don't know what it will do. If he hits his head, they don't know if it'll bleed. They don't know if it'll just keep growing as he grows. They really don't know much about it at all!

We're off to hospital at 9 am, and hope to be home by lunchtime!

Wish us luck xx

  1. Fair call, and yours only to make! It's always hard to watch though, isn't it?
