Hydrocephalus baby

Hi I have a 13 month old baby was born with normal delivery at 38 weeks. She was well for a week at home . Then had seizures so was admitted in hospital. They then picked up that she had a blood clot on the left front of her head. So was taken for surgery. She spent 3 and a half months in hospital. Was discharged without any problems. Then after 3 months at home was taken for a regular checkup at the neurosurgeon only for him to say she needed to be shunted. It's was done but she had non communicating hydrocephalus so after a month was shunted again on the other side of her head. Since then she is doing great. But her development is slow. In terms of her head. It is nt yet balanced although she tries. She is active, responsive. Eats does everything except for her neck is taking long to strengthen. Anyone can tell me how long it takes for their neck to strengthen. Thanks
