I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas Holiday!! Just a small update on Mary’s MRI that we had done on December 22. As we knew from when she was in the NICU, the left side of her Cerebellum was damaged and non functional. However we did find out that the Grade 2 bleed that was in her brain came from the right side of the Cerebellum, due to the smaller than average size of the right side. We have an appointment on Friday to meet with a Neurologist to discuss what obstacles Mary will face, and what challenges we will need to help her overcome in the next few years of her crucial development.
The doctors seem to be optimistic that since she is a baby she will be able to re-train her brain in order to function. We can already see this happening as she is able to grasp small objects, and feed herself. Her fine motor skills are slowly developing, but they are. I would like to thank everyone for all of the thoughts, prayers, and support that we have had over the years. Have a great Holiday season. Here are a couple of pictures I took during the Holidays.
