THE SYRINX SHRUNK!!!!!

Yes! Hurray! Yippy! (I am doing back flips off my chair!!!)

The nurse who works with Dr. Storm called this evening to let us know that Simon's syrinx has shrunk down dramatically. He won't need a shunt. He will be monitored by watching his scoliosis and that should be it. Now, Dr. Storm still has to sign off on all this but Debbie (the nurse practitioner) was certain it had significantly shrunk and there would be no need for a shunt.

He's ok. My baby is okay.

News doesn't get much better than this.
