Counting On new mom Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin Forsyth recently went through another scare. The young couple had to take their baby, Evelyn Mae Forsyth, to a specialist because of a problem with her head.
Counting On: Joy-Anna Duggar Worries about Evelyn
Joy-Anna Duggar from Counting On kept quiet about the issue with Evelyn Forsyth until after they saw the specialist. At around a month old, Evelyn’s doctor noticed an abnormality on her head. She had a strange bump on the back of her head, and they had some concern about it.
Counting On mom Joy-Anna said their pediatrician said it was likely nothing. But they also said if it was something like her skull growing together too quickly – she could get brain damage. Since it sounded very serious, they took her to a craniofacial doctor in Little Rock, Arkansas, at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
TLC’s Joy-Anna said she and Austin didn’t think anything was wrong, but they wanted to make sure. Fans of Counting On said they were glad they took her to the doctor. At the doctor, they gave their outlook on what might happen with Evelyn in the future.
Joy-Anna & Austin Forsyth Get Health Update
Counting On dad Austin went into the hospital with his daughter. The hospital only allowed one person inside, and they chose dad to do the duty. The doctor said they could see what the other doctor was talking about, but it didn’t concern her right then.
The doctor said they should keep an eye on her head for the next year or two. If anyone strange happened or they noticed any changes, they should call her and see what needs to happen. It is still a possibility that Evelyn Forsyth could need surgery.
Counting On parents Joy-Anna and Austin took this as good news. They were very thankful and excited about hearing that their daughter likely wouldn’t need further medical attention. They did, however, say they would keep a close eye on things.
