I had a daughter that was so sweet. She had CP,seizures, a vp shunt,was blind & never was able to hold her own head up. It was alot of work but I tried to focus on the positive, no matter how small it was. She had a beautiful smile, loved music & me singing to her. As I prepared meals I would put spices or foods at her nose to stimulate that sense. She definately had her favorites. Surprisingly she liked onions.
She passed away just before her 12th birthday.

After takeing time for your self,
Keep your head up and keep going.
I have a 5 1/2 year old boy who has
Epilepsy, receptive expressive language
Disorder, sensory issues, hypotonia and is globally delayed. And is the funnest kid to be with at times
Remember that is what our kids have not who they are.

Hi I have a 9 year old who was born 11 weeks early. And has CP and seizures. I wouldn't trade him for any other child. Although it can be overwhelming at times his good days make you forget about it all. Take it one day at a time and enjoy the little things ..... like there smile or laughter

My three year old daughter has hypotonia and she has brain damage from when she was born early. She mentally is 1 years old even though she's three in age. She has to wear braces on her legs and it seems every year she has to be hospitalized. I wouldn't trade her for the world but the best advice I can give you is that there are really tough days and then ok days. Enjoy the ok days when you get them and just remember its ok to feel overwhelmed. Here's a blessing for you and your family.

My son has a vp shunt and wears hearing aids. He was born 12 weeks early and we seen lots of docs and therapist, but now that he's older not so much. We see a great neurosurgeon yearly. Have had revisions, 4 to be exact. Hope your child is doing well. I know it's a lot and everyone seems to be looking at you for all the answers but their are other moms who have walked in those same shoes. Your not alone.Good luck
