I'm glad that you are getting further testing done, I know it's a lot of stress but knowing what's going on is a big step. There are a lot of unknowns about his future right now, but getting the jump on physical therapy can make a lot of difference. The therapists can help on strengthening his muscles, and can probably give you some guidance with potty training. Please let us know what you find out from the doctors, sending you both lots of P&PTs.
