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’.

Fingers crossed for good results
Yesterday we went to see a Physio that specialises in hydrotherapy for adults(I saw her when I had my knee reconstructed and did antenatal classes with her with all 3 of my pregnancies). They did a morning tea fundraiser for Veronika Will Walk, and purchased Veronika a mat, neck ring, rubber duck, and swimming nappy for her to use when we get her Hydrotherapy pool at home. I thought that was just wonderful....and she insisted that we bring our bathers and have a swim while we were there too...
