Abnormal Head Size
Leslie Mitchell

Had to Have Special CT Scans
By Leslie Mitchell

I was born on 3-19-1980 and in July of the same year my local pediatrician told my parents that they thought I had a bigger head than the rest of the babies. That is when they sent me and my parents to Children's hospital in Birmingham Alabama to have all the CT scans and tests done. The result was that I was a normal baby and my head was fine. I was then sent back home to have a happy and healthy life.

Children’s means a lot to me. I have had lots of friends who have had to go to Children’s with their kids because they needed specialists to deal with only kids. I love Children’s and will always help out as much as I can with the CMN telethon each year.
