Percy was born in June 2012 and had successful surgery when he was less than a year old for a tethered cord syndrome (TCS) and a cystostomy (they created an opening in the bladder through his abdomen so that he now urinates through a tube in his bladder).


  Percy lives with a foster family and is reported to be clever. He is starting to speak, knows his body parts, and has age appropriate mental development. He has good gross and fine motor skills and is able to crawl, stand, and walk holding on to a hand.  Percy has a bright, winning personality and loves to stack blocks, play with toys and snuggle with his foster mom.

3. Is his movement impaired due to his spinal surgery?  No limitations besides that he cannot play soccer or any fierce sports.
4. Does he still have the cystostomy? Is there any permanent damage? It was already removed. He cannot pee by himself so he will always carry the fistula which is permanent.
