This will be short. Spoke with Dr. E. Matthew's brain bleed is gone with just iron deposits left behind which is normal.
What isn't normal is that he now has a porencephalic cyst in the area that was damaged. We will be seeing a pediatric neurologist about this. Of course I looked it up on the internet.
It is extremely rare!
You've got to be kidding me.
Most of the children with this have learning delays, autism, paralysis on part of their body, cerebral palsy, seizures and so forth. This only validates my observation that he uses his left arm/hand more than his right. I've been working with him on it, but we will definitely be starting physical therapy.
The radiologist who read the scan didn't give any specific measurements of the cyst or its exact location. We will have to wait to see the neurologist for this. I have no idea if these things can grow or what.
I know more MRI's will be in our future. And Lord only knows what else.
I know God is in control, and He has a plan for our precious boy. I love Matthew regardless. But I sure wish he could catch a break!
Isn't he just the cutest?!
Will post more later. I'm still processing this, but I'm already praying...
