That is what I told myself all the way back from seeing the neurologist with Taylor. Yes, my son does have cerebral palsy - but it is one of the types that I would want him to be diagnosed with if he was going to have it. Taylor has Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy, and after reading up on it on the Internet, I feel much better.
It turns out it is very common for preemies to have this battle, because of the bleeding on the brain they sometimes have at birth. The good news is it is "fixable". We have an appointment next month to see the physical therapist at Texas Childrens and from there, we'll wait and see. The doctor said Taylor will most likely have to wear braces on his legs for a period of time and they may even do botox shots. I looked that up as well and was shocked to see how they have been using this cosmetic drug in cerebral palsy patients and seeing results!!
The neurologist told me how special Taylor was to have been so very early and gone through what he has to be here. I had goosebumps all over when he mentioned Taylor must have had an angel looking out for him because most children born at that age have severe mental/physical problems.
I will keep you informed about Taylor's journey ~ Thanks to you all for the prayers, wishes, hugs, and smiles.
