A month after taking her baby boy home, Saab Magalona revealed that her son, Pancho, will pay another visit to the hospital — but for a good reason.

The “Cheats” singer shared another photo of her baby — which has become a recent habit of hers — sleeping in her arms. But a bump seemed noticeable on the little one’s head, as seen her recent Instagram post yesterday, May 9.

Is there something wrong with his head? Magalona explained that the bump was an Ommaya Reservoir, which is “a small silicone catheter put under his scalp when he was just a few days old.”

“The reservoir was periodically tapped to relieve pressure on his brain caused by the buildup of excess fluids,” Magalona went on. She added that she was thankful for everyone’s prayers because he no longer needs the reservoir.
