We have a 2 mo th old with a skull fracture . The doctor said he has a small amount of bleeding in the underlying skull bone. He s in good condition , eating sleeping acting normal with no neurological issues. The nurses and doctors have given him a good bill of health. We are in barcelona in holiday and need to return to Los Angeles. His injury occurred 4 days ago. It s a 11 hr flight back to Los Angeles. Should we not take the flight ?

Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
The head injury to your little one seems to be minor. This is proven by the CT scan findings and the fact that he is eating and sleeping normally. In view of the above, I think you can take him on the flight back home without any worries.
Best wishes,
