Waiting to hear what day for shunt

                                                                 Daddy and Avery.   Hey how come I don't have any pictures with Avery. Thats going to have to change
                                                     Her back is healing so well
                                                      Daddy holding my hand
                                                        Grandma Rita finally got to love on me
                                                          So did Grandpa Les

We are waiting to hear when the shunt surgery will take place, we have been told Wednesday but don't have a time yet. They are waiting to see what the ultrasound looks like today. Avery had her catheter taken out on May 3rd and was able to be put on her back for short periods(15min) throughout the day. She is urinating on her own and has not had to be cathed to empty her bladder. This is a huge milestone, as a lot of children with SB have to be cathed throughout the day because they don't have the sensation to empty their bladder. Yay!!!!
