Teddi Mellencamp has given an update on her 9-month-old daughter, Dove, five months after the baby underwent neurosurgery.

In July, Dove was diagnosed with lambdoid carniosynostosis, which is described as the premature fusion of bones near the back of an infant’s skull. Three months after the neurosurgery, Mellencamp has given an update of her condition.

Mellencamp began her Instagram post on with “Dove noggin update.” Speaking from her daughter’s point of view it read, “hi guys, I am 9 months old and other than a zig zag scar underneath my hair across my head I wouldn’t even know I had neurosurgery a few months back.”

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star explained that Dove is about to grow out of the helmet she has been wearing for 10 weeks. In order to keep up with recovery the baby will have to wear a new helmet for another 10 weeks.

Mellencamp expressed that her daughter is still a “happy, silly baby who loves to laugh, command all the attention in a room, go on walks and be sung to.”

“She just wanted to be held and loved and you know, she pushed. Such a fighter,” she added.
