Good & Bad NEWS!

>> Sunday, December 2, 2007

UPDATE: Good News: We have received Landens results from the MRI, and they have come back normal and so he doesn't have Cerebral Palsy which is a relief in someways. Bad News: The Doctor from Primary Children's Hospital has diagnosed him with Encephalopathy which is pretty much a brain disorder, but they don't know which one yet. He said that 50% of children you are able to see defects from the MRI, and the other 50% it gets harder, and you guessed it we are in that 50%. So right now we are getting him to Early Interventions hoping that we are able to help things with occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy before we try the medication. We go back to the doctor in three months to see what are options are at that time, but for now we are just doing the early interventions to see if we can make any progress there!

Christina, I love you and I am sorry about the negative news. As you know, we get a lot of negative with our Aidan. It's kind of like they know something is wrong, but no one can ever tell us exactly what it is. If you ever need to talk to someone that also understands e-mail me. stenj82@yahoo.com. I would love to just even listen to your frustrations because I definitely understand!
