Praise the Lord for He is GOOD!

Well we went to the neurosurgeon today and this is the report.

He said that her cerebellum (SP), back part of her brain was underdeveloped at birth. Some was missing, so to compensate the fluid began to form and fill in the hole. He said that it is not putting any pressure of the brain itself, as shown to us on the MRI. He told us that the fluid/cyst shouldnt grow any bigger by itself, just grow as she grows to keep the hole filled in. He said he didnt feel any need to do immediate surgery to drain it, because it would probable do it again, and as long as she was not showing any signs of danger he would monitor her every 3 months and so would the eye dr to check her pressure.......I like him.....he is te head professor of ped neurosurgeon at UAB. I think we will still contact my Dad's friend at Oshner in New Orleans I believe and get him to give us a second oppion anyway.

PLEASE keep her in your prayers and I am so thankful for all of you who have prayed already. I know the Lord has heard everyone's heart and that she will be just fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our eye Dr I think made it sound urgent to the neurosurgeon yesterday thats why we were in first thing this morning...we sat there in a room from 10:30-1:00. Thank God we brought our laptop to watch movies on.

Gabby should do just fine!!

Our Down Syndrome buddy walk is tomorrow so we will update you all on how that turns out!
