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’.

Brain Injury Rehab Specialist, Formula and Veronikas loves her new Wheels
Another win today, Veronika's script for her formula came in the post from the Paed, and she managed to get in on authority. SO its not going to cost a fortune, just the usual amount. So happy about that. So glad I didn't stress about it all weekend! I am still thinking that I might ask to see a Paed Gastroenterologist anyway, next time we see the Paed, to try to figure out why Veronika wont drink anything other than her formula, and why she isn't interested in eating ANYTHING. Worth talking to the Paed about anyway.
Veronika has been using the new wheels we borrowed from St Giles. She loves them, and we have been getting lots of positive comments about how good she looks in them. But then My Baby Girl looks good in anything!
And had a talk with Principal of St Cuthberts school today(school Veronika's brothers Jordan and Jakob go to), so watch this space for more details to follow of a VWW fundraiser......
