They are the world’s most rare triplets: Check out how they appear today after undergoing historic surgery.

Expecting a child is a reason enough to be extremely happy and a chance to be a proud parent. Finding out that you expect triplets is a reason plus to be extraordinarily excited. The young Howard family found out that they are going to be proud parents of three babies, but that happiness was dampened by terrible news. All three babies suffered from an extremely rare medical condition called craniosynostosis.

The medical condition is very rare and it affects 1 in 2,500. The babies develop the unusual shapes of the skull, and therefore they have strange head features. Nowadays, patients suffering from craniosynostosis usually find a cure by undergoing several corrective surgeries. Doctors recommend immediate assistance in order to avoid further possible brain damage!

The innocent newborns, Hunter, Jackson, and Kaden, faced up with the harshness of life from the moment they were welcomed into the world. Soon after their birth, the doctors concluded that Hunter and Jackson, besides sharing identical physical characteristics, shared protruded skulls as well. Young Kaden, on the other hand, had a triangular form of the head.

The babies’ unusual physical appearance necessitated several surgeries to help them appear ‘normal.’ Dr. David Chesler explains this medical condition: “Your skull is made up of plates, it’s not a single bone.” If the seams come together too soon, the brain can be put under strain. This can be hazardous to the child’s brain, vision, and life.

It’s not immediately life-threatening, but it can have serious consequences.” Hunter, Jackson, and Kaden had surgery at the age of 11 weeks. “I was very freaked out,” Mr. Howards adds. It’s a little crazy any time you have to put the baby [in an operating room].” Check out the video below for more on this incredible story.
