Austin is now 6 1/2 years old and heading into the home stretch of his kindergarten year. He is doing great health wise and in school. We just celebrated the one year anniversary of his shunt which was replaced on February 1, 2013. He wasn't having any symptoms of shunt malfunction but an MRI showed that the tubing was pulling away from the ventricle in his brain and most likely would soon stop working. So the shunt revision was done as a preventative measure and it was a fairly routine procedure. He recovered from it well. We are in the process of scheduling his MRI for this year. We're excited to announce our 3rd biannual Garage Sale & Bake Sale benefiting Nevus Outreach will be taking place on April 25 & 26. We will be selling all kinds of household goods, children's clothing and toys, appliances, furniture and electronics. This year we will again be featuring baked goods, as they were a huge hit last time. We hope that you will join us to support this great organization that has helped us so much over the past 6 1/2 years!
