One year old son - had stroke.
we have just been told that my one year old son probably had a stroke at birth, we had a nightmare delivery and were both lucky to survive... we are waiting to have an mri scan done in Jan, and were told that he would need to have OT and Physio once it was confirmed. i was wondering if there were exercises we could begin with in the meantime that may help in getting the ball rolling... the stroke they mentioned was hemiparesis. it seems that the stroke was on the left side of the brain as his right eye is not open properly ( he has already had one op on this as they thought it was a muscle poorly developed), his right hand is claw like and he has difficulty using it and he is weak in the right arm and leg and foot. thanking you in advance, Leanne Levy
