MRI results

We received the MRI results a while back but I hadn't posted because, well, there's not much to report. Here's the official info I was given:

"Sequelae of global ischemic injury in the ventricular area; not classic for prematurity but that is a possibility"

That's it.

But what does it mean???

Well, it means at some point, probably during childbirth, Danielle's brain experienced decreased blood flow and thus oxygen. This is possibly the cause of her balance and coordination issues. Or not. We still don't know. So we'll keep doing what we're doing and watch her improve every day! :)

I didn't understand Mary's MRI results in any detail until a really good neurologist explained it all to me. If you haven't had a chance to do this yet, try to.

So glad things are going well!
