Parent of 23 month old, just told he has mild diplegia/hemiplegia cerebral palsy
I am very new to all this my son is 23 months old and back in august of this year I was told he had very mild cerebral palsy.
We had no warning of this, he was born at 38+2 weeks with normal uneventful labour. He has met all his development al milestones well, he started walking at 11 months old, he is talking well (stringing words together now) and has been for a few months. The only indication I had something was wrong was that I asked his paediatrician to look at his walking at a visit (he was under him for a cows milk intolerance). He walks with his foot rotated in and on his toes on the right hand side.
The Dr referred him for hips x-rays and physio and said on examination he couldn't see anything wrong. When we went back for review after physio in August he said he had very mild cerebral palsy and he was sorry he missed it!!!
I am in shock and fear for what his future holds now. I would be very gratefull of anyones help and support for me at this difficult time. I would love to share experiences with parents of children in s similar situation.
