Home from the Hospital...Birthday with Daddy

Word from Dr. Pauli today. We need a shunt. The pressure on Bryan's head is increasing and it either needs to be monitored internally with possiblility of a shunt later....or a shunt now as there is pressure on his optic nerves. We have contacted the neurosurgeon at TCH and are waiting on a schedule for surgery.
It has been a wonderful week of wagon rides, park visits, root beer floats, home cooked meals and PT. What a great week! This little boy desperately wants to walk on his own. Such determination. We cherish every moment with him and can't wait to see him running around on his own in the back yard.
Praying that surgery goes well and there are no complications so Bryan can get back to PT and keep up the progress he has been working so hard at.
Hope you enjoy the pics as much as we do. We had a little birthday party for Bryan and Casey the day he was released from the hospital as Casey will be offshore working for their birthdays.

I will be thinking of you guys. From those pictures he doesn't look like a kiddo who is going to go into surgery! He is beyond adorable! That face is so kissable!

You will be in my prayers. Trust the doctors for your little man. He is absolutely adorable and will be even happier when the shunt is placed. Keep us informed!!!
