When your baby is 1 week old, and she has her 1st MRI and the results aren’t what you thought you would ever hear, let alone something you never want to hear……Veronika has an injury to her brain from the bleed she had before she was born, and we believe that it will affect her movement down the left side of her body, and she will most likely never walk….

I guess at that point in you make a decision, one of two possible options i guess. You either think ‘oh well, if that’s how its gonna be, why bother,’ OR ‘Yes she will walk, and we will come back in when she does and say I TOLD YOU SO’.

Maybe some answers tomorrow!?!?

Tomorrow we are off to see Veronikas occupational therapist early in the afternoon, then after that we are off to see the pediatrician. Maybe we might get some answers about the letter we got back from the baby neurologist, hopefully she will be able to interpret the letter with all those really big words. Fingers crossed!

I also forgot to share in my last post that Veronika has mastered her 2nd two handed sign, car. It was on Sunday, when we were leaving Orford after our weekend away, we said to her it was time to go to the car, and she signed it. Usually we sign something to her and wait, then re sign it and wait, then re sign it and wait etc, and try again later. Well we got a couple of signing videos for Veronika to watch and the 1 sign she has picked up is "car". The other exciting moment was last week we went to Richmond with friends for lunch and to feed the ducks. Veronika loved seeing the ducks, and I continued to sign 'duck' to her. Later that afternoon when Jordan and Jakob were having their swimming lessons, Veronika was looking at her book, saw a picture of a duck and she signed it. Another proud moment. Yeah for my Princess!
