I may or may not have mentioned, but our baby girl from China has cerebral palsy.
Sometimes we forget, because we decided not to make a big deal out of it emotionally.
We are doing everything medically possible to help her. It's one of the reasons we are so happy she is here. With physical therapy and all the medical break-throughs...the possibilities are wonderful! What ever the neurologist says to do, gets done.
But we do remember when people stare at her when she is walking because she limps. And she tends to lose her balance easily. But we just cheer her on to get back up by herself. And she doesn't seem to know any different, either.
One of the things that also happens, is her left eye kind of crosses itself randomly. Not often enough that it is constant, just often enough for us to notice since we are with her all the time.
We went to an eye specialist today. GOOD NEWS!! Her eyes themselves are healthy. :) Yes, he noticed the wandering, but for now, he will take the wait and see approach, specially since it doesn't happen all the time, and she is young, we will see what happens in 6 months.
