The unfortunate thing about getting that kind of news is that although Kellan seemed to be moving his legs alright, he was still so young to really know what kind of movement he was truly getting and we didn't know if it would effect anything else. He had an ultra sound done in the hospital and after a lot of confusion and a lot of frustration on our part, we finally got the test read two weeks later that ruled out the tethered spine. Talk about worried, sleepless nights and a lot of bitchy phone calls from me to our neurologists office.
There was however a little bit of epidural blood hanging around at the end of the spine. Which brings us to our latest ultra sound. We have been letting him grow a bit to see if it would clear up on it own or if he would have to have a surgery to remove the spot of blood. I've been praying around the clock that the spot would be gone because the last thing I want is for him to be put under and for anyone to go near his spine.
We have yet to get the results that were supposed to be read by our (bone head) neurologist but the ultra sound tech said one of two things...that it could be gone because she didn't see anything OR he could have grown too much and we will need an MRI to see it better. So we wait. Whatever the outcome at this point, I'm just considering it a gift from God that his spine is in perfect shape. Adam and I were getting prematurely emotional about him having issues being a normal kid. You never want anything to restrict your child from doing whatever they want. Keep your fingers crossed it's cleared itself up!
Nakey baby ready to go.
Adam cannot stand to see his boys upset. EVER.
He was such a good sport.
Starting to get a little agitated.
It looks like Adam is holding his hand here but Kellan was actually sucking on his knuckle to soothe himself. It was precious and heartbreaking all at the same time.
The second they were done Adam elbowed right by me to get to pick him up first. He likes to be the hero. He was basically whimpering at this point. Poor baby. It wasn't even that bad.
