Here is Mason’s head a week after two shunt surgeries. It is healing pretty well so far. Now we just wait for it to finish and for the hair to grow back again. All in all he’s feeling pretty great and being his own cute 9 month old self.
Spina Bifida Tip of the Day:
Get used to hearing the words “We’ll have to wait and see.” From the moment you learn your child will be born with SB this will be every doctor’s mantra. They really can’t predict just what will be affected and to what degree.
Once your child is born it just continues. Now you have to wait and see what your child can do and WHEN they’ll do it. The typical developmental timeline now means nothing. Your child is not typical, they are a unique blessing who will develop on their own schedule. You’ll just have to wait and see what that schedule will be!
