Well, if you are getting this and wondering how we are doing, we are actually doing quiet well. Owen has started saying a ton of words and preschool has been a Great thing for him. We couldn't be prouder of him. Its so fun to have a conversation with him!! Which is great news. Walking has been a challenge for him which we are hoping will change with upcoming events. Which brings me to the next thing. Owen will be going through another surgery on Wednesday. Not something that we want or wish to do of course, but neurosurgery believes that putting in a shunt to relieve the pressure build up will be good for him. :( Yes, it's a bummer but it's a pretty easy. We all should be back home on Thursday after one day in there hospital. Which is a good thing.
So information about what we are doing, we are placing a shunt in Owens brain to relieve pressure, so basically it's a drain that will run from Owen's brain down into his tummy. or as i like to call it a Brain drain.
You might be asking how mike and I are holding up. You know, pretty well, we have actually known for a while just didn't want to admit that we needed to do something about it, But we really believe that it's going to be the best for Owen.
Other than that Owen is doing well, has a love hate relationship with his little brother, who is starting to walk. Owen pulls him down a lot!! But we do catch them playing together has to be the coolest things we have seen. Owen is not only going to preschool, which he loves, he is speech, PT, OT, Music, and swimming therapy. I think he loves swimming and music the best. It has been a journey for him but he has so much determination! it's great to see as his mom.
Please keep Owen in your thoughts and prayers this week for a quick recovery.
The last thing that I really wanted to bring up is the 4th annual purple de mayo. Yes we are doing it again. I am a super busy mom, so I am not asking for much, just that you wear purple to show your support. If you would like to share pictures I would love to see them, as I think Owen would get a kick out of it too. Remember Purple de mayo is on the 5th of May. I hope that you all will make part.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
Thank you so much for all the love and support!!
