Article 12  Scars Unite New Mom, Son  Mothers and their children have a close deep bond with each other some are more obvious than others. Johnna Kerres and her son, Evertt is now 5 months old, they show their in a form of scars. Last summer, Johnna states that in her 18th month of pregnancy she was shocked to learn that the fetus she was carrying had a spina bifida, a neural tube defect in which the spinal column doesn’t close completely.  Her husband states that it was “potentially devastating.” The couple was initially given a poor prognosis that their son could be “brain dead and a vegetable” with very low quality of life. As the mother thought that the doctor was “using outdated information” about the defect, which made the couples hearts feel like they were breaking. The cause of spina bifida is unknown, and the defect could have a lifetime of effects on the brain, bowel, and also bladder function, and mobility and learning abilities.  The severity of those affects vary widely. Spina bifida involves an opening back through  which the spinal nerves bulge out. They can be fixed immediately after birth or before birth through a 3 to 4 inch cut in the uterus. After any of those surgeries, it takes weeks to heal. The mothers would be in the hospital for longer.
