Well Mr. Brantley is officially 10 weeks without the need of a shunt! thats fantastic news. We are moving to Arizona because my husband is going to start a new job, he will be gone 2 weeks out of the month. Brantley is going to have to get established in a new hospital and new doctors. Pray that its a fairly easy transition. He is growing like a weed and im so thankfull for every day we get to send together. He is truly a blessing and im so honored to be his mommy

I am almost 20 weeks pregnant and just found out my son Brantley will be born with Spina Bifida. I am a canidate for an in utero surgery where they do a Csection in the next few weeks (24-25) take my uterus out and operate on Brantley to close the lesion on his spine. This surgery greatly reduces his need for a shunt to drain the fluid off his brain and also reverses the damage being done by the swelling on his brain. The faster the lesion is closed the less the nerves are exposed to the amniotic fluid, therefore bettering his chances at a more normal life. I am 20 years old and this is my first child, doctors said it was just bad luck. The only hospital i can have this surgery at is 4 hours away. My husband just returned home from afghanistan and hes on unemployment...., i cant work. The traveling is going to be very hard on us financially. We are also just moving into a new house for the newly needed room, this all happened before we found out about Brantleys future. So anything you can give will help more than you know.
