Holly - I have been reading your blog I came across while on the Internet. I am so sorry that your son has had to go through so many things. I am 18 and have had 49 brain surgeries mostly for shunts. I currently have a pleural shunt that was revised last week. When I read stories like these it makes me hopeful. Hopeful that one say shunts will be perfected. No one will ever have to get them revised and that they will never break(she said hopefully) I am happy that your son is doing better. You are in my prayers.

Natalia - I’m so happy Chance is doing so well. He is so amazing. Nash has been doing really well too. He also began army crawling and now gets up on all fours so soon hell be crawling. He has done awesome at all his visits. I just like u keep praying my baby boy will walk one day.strengthening We are working on strengthening his lower body muscles. I think of Chance often and pray for you guys. There needs to be so much more on Spinal Bifida. Its not a death sentence. I was so scared when I got the news. It was devastating but u helped me. I did the in utero surgery and its been a crazy year n a half! U r blessed with a sweet smart strong boy! Thank u for sharing ur story.
