Photo's from Megan's 2nd Birthday Party!!
Allow me to introduce to you my niece, Megan Nichole Lobetti. She was born September 22, 1997. Unfortunately, Megan was born with Spina Bifida, which had left a portion of her spine completely exposed and was causing fluid to gather around her brain.
She underwent surgery immedialely after her delivery to repair and close the opening around her spine and to insert a shunt which would allow the fluid to drain from around her brain. After surgery, Megan stayed in the hospital for over a month.
Megan is doing well concidering her condition which at the present time may have left paralysis in her legs. But where there is life there is hope. Megan just celebrated her first birthday, Praise God, and is the most contented and loving child I have ever known!
Megan loves her big brother Joey, and he really loves her too. He sings songs to her and kisses her cheecks and gives her big hugs. Joey is very protective of his little sister, just like all big brothers should be.
Megan is... as you can see, Pappaw's little girl. She loves to sit in his lap and thoroughly mess up his hair. He enjoys it as much as she does. Pappaw sings and Megan will try her best to do a little dance while sitting in his lap.
I'm sure that Megan's parents would love to hear that your prayers are with them. Any encouragement is appreciated.
