During my pregnancy with Claire, I was told she had meningocele and the doctors told me, “just be glad she doesn’t have myleomeningocele!” So, my pregnancy passed easily and ironically, I was mostly just thankful that she didn’t have myleo. Of course, she did have myleo and so her birth felt like it came with a completely different diagnosis. It took me several months to “catch up” so to speak. She did have a shunt placed but has not had any revisions. She was a very docile baby. I tell her that I don’t know what happened but at 1 yr she had a complete personality change. She is high energy, opinionated, and talks incessantly. Now at almost four, she is incredibly witty and her language is far beyond her peers. At our appointments, she approaches the front desk by herself, tells them her name, and will chat on and on about where we have been that day, etc. Someone told me the other day, “its like talking to a little adult!” She is also incredibly imaginative. Recently, she has renamed herself, Rosa Rainbow Sherbert and prefers to be called by her full name.
