- Oct 1, 2007Hello Roaslie! My son has a similar diagnosis. Although, he is a
spastic quadriplegic. He too has periventricular leukomalacia due to
prematurity. He just had his second birthday!! He is able to sit,
commando crawl and is starting to pull himself up to his knees. From
the research that I have done, it is next to impossible to gage what
will become of his abilities in the future. For right now, my only
advice to you is to keep up the good work. Continue ST,OT,&PT...and
go ahead with the botox injections if your doctor sees it to be
beneficial for your daughter. I have heard lots of good things about
botox injections and it is very minimally invasive. My son's doctors
and therapists have began to discuss future injections with my son.
You are blessed to have such a special little girl! Keep your head
up and remember that "Rome wasn't built in a day" your daughter will
do everything that God intends for her to do. He never gives us more
than he thinks that we can handle. Have a great week!!!
