i have a almost 10 month old. she also has spina bifida. she just had a shunt revision a few weeks ago. im just wandering if its normal for her to be so far behind. or if it is something that is just normal for a child with hydro to take longer to do the things that she is supposto be doing. its more like she is 6 month. i knew she was going to be a little behind because she has been hospitalized 5 times and had three surgeries. i really think the 5 months before she had the shunt revision she wasent developing at all. its like she was there but wasent. she also has eye problems one eye or the other will always cross inward. they said she was extremely near sided. but she had the eye exam and got the glasses almost a month before the shunt malfuntion. im really just wanting to here someone else's experience and advise and learn what i should be expecting. she is doing so much better know in the past few weeks. im just worried that maybe it wasent working right for a while and maybe it did some damage. the doctors never are a help and can never answer my questions.
