God doesn't give children with special needs to strong people; He gives children with special needs to ordinary, weak people and then gives them strength. Raising a child with special needs doesn't take a special family, it makes a special family.

All better!!

We had to be at the hospital at 6am....talk about early!! Well of course we had to wait forever so Mommy brought me some toys to occupy my time. Everybody was amazed at how good I was....considering I hadn't eaten since 5:30 last night!!!

I know....I have chunky legs!! I had no clue why we were here or what was going on! If I knew what they were getting ready to do to me, I sure would't have had a smile on my face!!

Wow!!!! That was some good sleep! As soon as I woke up in the recovery room Mommy and Daddy came walking through the doors! Mommy started talking to me and I couldn't help but smile. The nurses couldn't believe how well I woke up from the anesthesia....I was ready to play! I feel so much better now that they fixed my shunt. The doctor said he couldn't believe that I didn't show any signs that it wasn't working, but I feel so much better now that everything is fixed!! Me, Mommy, and Daddy want to thank everyone for all of your prayers....other than taking them 3 hours to start my IV, everything went perfectly!! Hopefully I will be going home Friday....tomorrow!!!
