My son was born at 24 wks of gestation. He suffered a hemmorahge and had what is known as VP Shunt inserted into his brain. He spent a total of 4 months in hospitals before ever coming home. He is almost 4yrs old and doesn't really have great balance while he runs, jumping isn't so easy for him to do, and he can't hold up fingers to show 3, or 4. He can't not without the aid of his other hand to hold downthe fingers that re supposed to be down. Wondering what "complications" or minor issues other children deal with? I have never really talked about this to other Moms that don't have premie babies so any feedback would be helpful. Thank u..
