  1. Thanks for posting this.

    My youngest son was in and out of the hospital for the first two years of his life with health problems. The valve on the top of his stomach didn't close for one thing. Even though he looked and acted normal he did get sick a lot. The drs. would tell me they thought he had a certain disease and when the test came back negative they'd tell me they thought he had another disease and the test would come back negative for that. This went on and on for the two years, and I was terrified the whole time thinking he had cancer or all the other things they mentioned. Cerebral Palsy was one of the things they thought he had. I wish I'd seen something like this back then, I would have told them that no, he didn't have any of the symptoms of Cerebral Palsy. It was a rough two years, but then all of a sudden he stopped getting sick and was very healthy.
