Thank you all so much for the overwhelming love and support, as you all know I pulled from my fight to be with my son. With his his condition being life long he is at risk for surgery everyday. Although there were some worries about his shunt failing due to some malfunction symptoms I am happy to let everyone know that he is doing well and will not need any surgery. Thank you to everyone who had reached out we love you all.
