Hello to everyone
I am a first time mom just looking for someone to share my current problems. Maybe looking for a little hope. My 5 month old beautiful son had a stroke when he was born it was so severe that it has left him with permanent brain damage on almost all parts of his brains. Doctors told me he would never walk talk or have any quality of life. Today he is 5 months and developing fine in my opinion although I do notice some red flags. We are in EI for weak neck muscles being that he does not have complete head control yet. He also has increased muscle tone in his left arm and was recently fitted for a splint. All of my research point to cerebral palsy. I don't want to believe this. How can I when it all happened so fast. Im mad hurt and feeling hopeless. I don't want to believe what they say. At what point do I begin to accept anything that they have said.. can I continue to hope for the best in spite of the prognosis?
