Weeks later

It’s been a couple of weeks since Cayla had her diagnosis and lots have happened since. I have been in contact with the Centre for Cerebral Palsy (TCCP) here in Perth and met with some amazing people along the way. I realise that what I thought I knew about Cerebral palsy was very little or just not right at all…

Cayla has got mild cerebral palsy and it seem to affect her left side but mainly her left foot. She is walking on her left side of her foot, a bit up on her toes due to stiffness/spacticity in her left leg. Somehow the brain is sending too many signals to that part of her body and I’m guessing that an MRI will tell us more. Her speech is delayed and I suppose it doesn’t help that we are speaking two languages at home. She is saying about 11 words now but is not using all 11 words every day. She seem to understand every thing we say to her which is good.
