Tucker Alan Schreckenghost was born at 8:02am on July 27, 2011. Tucker was born with Spina Bifida (S2) and has already shown us how strong of a person he is. My goal is to tell his story to friends and family and share his journey through this unpredictable life. To learn his full story, start from the first posting. Enjoy!
12/24/2010-We're pregnant! 3/23/2011-Tuckers a boy. We also find out he has Myelomeningocele. Which is a defect where the spinal cord doesn't fully develop. Essentially the spinal cord has an opening. This also causes hydrocephalus; spinal fluid builds up in the ventricals (in the head) and needs a shunt put into to circulate back into the body. 3/28/11-Met with neurologist to talk about severity of Tucker's defect. It was hell waiting 5 days. After having a good talk, Liane and I went and did some baby shoppiing. It was a great day of relief. 7/27/11-C-section date 730am. Surgery to close his spine to come within 48hrs. 7/28/11-Surgery to close spine.
