Scary news.

We found out on Monday that baby Magnus has a birth defect called craniosynostosis ( the suture in his skull that runs front to back closed prematurely while in utero. As he grows his brain will not have room to expand). The only treatment for this is surgery....scary surgery....skull surgery. 

His surgery will be in July, we are waiting to hear on a date. The next few weeks are filled with appointments for ct scans, meeting surgeons, and hopefully finding a blood donor match within our family. 

Everything else is on hold and just doesn't matter right now. We will be staying in WI as we deal with Magnus's surgery, recovery, and follow ups. 

Please keep our little boy in your thoughts! 


  1. Oh Eryn! I emailed the other day to see how your moving plans were coming along and then popped over here and saw this. I hope the surgery went well and that little Magnus is healing as he is supposed to.

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog :) You should start blogging again so we can keep up with each other! By the way, one of my boys is also called Erik, and I hope your baby boy is thriving and over that scary time now. xxx
