When I was given the go ahead to eat following my fetal surgery five years ago, my mom, Austin and I ordered Chinese take out. I still don't really believe it, but this is the fortune that I received in my fortune cookie that night.
So tomorrow I will celebrate Grayden's fifth "butt day". But what I will be celebrating are the incredible doctors and individuals who were willing to think outside the box and take the risk to try something unheard of. I will celebrate because there are doctors/people out there that are striving to make a difference in the lives of people like Grayden. People and doctors who believe Grayden and the many other people living with Spina Bifida are worth it!! Tonight as I reflect on the opportunity we were given I am incredibly thankful, but what I know now is that Grayden would be incredible fetal surgery or not.
Thank you to all of you who supported us during this time 5 years ago and those of you who continue to cheer us on as we travel this journey. We are blessed beyond belief to have some pretty amazing people in our lives!
