Ahh, Halloween. One of my favorite times of the year. The time for costumes,.

Cassiel was born five months ago with spina bifida L4-T2 and hydrocephalus. He has the shunt surgery and back surgery and everything went well until he turned two months old and got e coli meningitis. He barely made it twice but he did make it however that left severe brain damage from seizures and mini strokes and and now he is very lacking in milestones. He half smiles sometimes but not much.
