Christopher's shunt


This is just for anyone interested in what a shunt actually looks like from the inside! So amazing that this device keeps our Christopher healthy and alive. I tried to scan the part that coils around his intestines but it wouldn't scan...will keep trying. There is actually enough tubing in his stomach to last until he is grown. Isn't that awesome? We just got back from clinic today, lots od new information! I will save it all for another day because we are BEAT!!!

That's really amazing to see, Boo...can remember seeing that there for the first time when he was brand new...time flies, doesn't it! And what a beautiful, sweet boy he is! I love him--and you--with all my heart...

That is so cool! A few months ago we went to listen to a neurosurgeon and he passed around a shunt so that we could see what it looks and feels like. It was really neat.
