Hi, my name is hayleymc83!

My son was born in March and we found out two days after he was born (after suffering some seizures) that he had suffered strokes in utero and as a result an MRI scan showed that he has severe brain damage. Consultants say that it seems to have affected more of the movement and motor side of his brain. This is likely to cause cerebral palsy and possible epilepsy. We have no answers to what the future will hold only that we need to see when and if he gets to his milestones. It's incredibly hard and I'm looking to talk to people who know how this feels and how isolating it is.

Thanks. Hayley
