Update on my son:
When we were called with the results from Matts spine MRI, we were told that there were no new findings. However, today the surgeons looked over the scan & found that he has Tethered spinal cord syndrome, which is a neurological disorder caused by tissue attachments that limit the movement of the spinal cord within the spinal column. These attachments cause an abnormal stretching of the spinal cord. They are pretty sure that this has caused the Chiari Malformation. At this time he does not need & may not ever have to have the decompression surgery as we were originally told. Instead he has to have the release of tethered cord surgery on his spine. At the time of his surgery, they will also be performing a spinal tap to rule out the possibility of Pseudotumor Cerebri as well as anything else, due to the symptoms not coinciding with those of Chiari Malformation. He will have surgery on Thursday, September 21st, if all goes well he will be home by Saturday & back to school by Monday..2 weeks just going part time will likely be the case. Depending on the spinal tap results & how his symptoms continue, he may have to have a shunt placed in the future. Thank you all for the prayers,please keep em coming!! wedding garments in pale and blush pink
