Where have you been, lady?!! Personal Life Update:

I have been missing my craft room lately, but for a very good reason! 6 months ago, I had a brand new baby boy that I named Gabriel! He is our first child, and my husband and I have been over the moon for him. He has taken a lot of energy and I’ve been left at the end of the day dreaming of crafting rather than actually doing any crafting. My son was born with a rare condition called Prune Belly Syndrome (aka Eagle Barrett Syndrome). It affects about 1 in 40,000 people and can vary in severity from deadly to rather mild.

So far, my son has been on the milder side of the spectrum, but it has still been a very emotional and scary journey so far. Prune Belly Syndrome gets its name from the prune-like appearance of the affected person’s abdomen. People with this condition are boon with or very little or no abdominal muscles. It also causes kidney problems. So far, my son’s kidneys are doing fairly well, but will have to undergo some surgeries and be watched closely by nephrologists and urologists throughout his life.

If you, or someone you know has a child or is expecting a child with this condition, feel free to contact me with any questions. I will do my best to answer what I can. It’s not a journey that is easy to take alone and we are blessed to have a child with such a great prognosis.
