Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Oliver.
Oliver was recently diagnosed with craniosynostosis, a rare birth defect. His sagittal suture on his skull fused at some point in the womb and his condition went undiagnosed for four years. Oliver now needs major surgery to open his sagittal suture to allow for proper brain growth and lessen the risk of increased pressure on his brain.
Because this type of surgery is so uncommon in older children, we are planning on flying to Dallas, TX to have Oliver treated by one of the top neurosurgeon/craniofacial surgeon teams in the country.
