Hello everyone, introducing myself and my son with CP
My son Zack is 10 months old - he suffered abrupt and severe lack of oxygen during birth from the cord around his neck with apgars of 1/1/1. As a result he suffered a brain injury to the basal ganglia and thalamus. He now has mixed tone CP with dystona. He is an amazing miracle as he did not take his first breath until 30 minutes of life and had no heart rate for 24 minutes. His strength still shows every day as he works hard at learning to move his body and his arms....We are in lot of therapy for him and he is responding well, but he is very delayed in his motor skills. He is a wonderful delightful baby and is always alert, checking out the scenery, smiling, giggling and snuggling!
