Grayden had his MRI last week to make up for the one that we missed while we were in Philly. We met with the neurosurgeon here in Grand Rapids to go over the results and all is well. He said that there is no evidence of a syrinx and that all looked good from his standpoint. There was evidence of tethered cord,but this is the case with all kids who have Spina Bifida and it is a wait and see as to whether it will become symptomatic or not. He also said that his brain looks good. The shunt is functioning as it should and there is no evidence of obstruction.
I am a mom to an amazing little guy who brightens my day and a wife to the best husband I could have ever asked for. We are expecting another baby boy, Grayden in the fall of 2010 and recently found out that he has Spina Bifida. Since that time we decided to participate in the MOMS trial and undergo prenatal surgery to repair the lesion on his back. This is our journey as we experience the joys of becoming and being parents to two little boys.
