I had twins born at 25 weeks in 2002- they are now eleven years old. My son that had the IVH is doing well but has CP on the left side of his body (mild spastic hemiplegia) and major academic and social delays. He has had an incredibly hard time learning to read (we believe he also has dyslexia). He has been on many medications to help his intense mood swings (suffered terribly with some meds and withdrawls but now stable on Geodon and Guanfacine). I could go on and on about all that we go through but I was really hoping to find another mom of a preemie that suffered a Unilateral Right Side Grade IV IVH and see how there child is doing at 11 years of age or around that age. God Bless all you mom's!!
