Quoting Connor's mom♥[GDS]:“ is PVL all they said was going on with her brain? if you don't mind why did she need an MRI was she early? ... [snip!] ... she need an MRI was she early? if you don't want to answer i will understand, or if you want you can PM me to keep it private.”
She wasn't early. She was born at 39 weeks. She was taken c-section because my blood pressure was elevated and I had high blood pressure with my son also. Anyway, she was perfectly healthy at birth, but at her 6 month appointment I mentioned to my doctor that she wasn't trying to sit up or roll completely over. He decided to send her to Riley's childrens hospital in Indianapolis, IN to a developmental specialist. They thought she did a few other odd things, she holds her hands in a fist a lot, happy disposition, and she is kinda floppy. They ran a bunch of blood tests and they all came back negative and last wednesday she went in for an MRI and they called me friday with the results. All they said was that she has moderate thinning of the white matter on her brain. No diagnosis. I just looked up thinning white matter and came up with the PVL myself. I am not sure if they are waiting on her urine test to come back before they decide to diagnose her or what. That is the only test result we are waiting on. She is a very happy baby and she smiles a lot, she just doesn't seem to be able to do a whole lot of things like sitting up, rolling over, she won't put weight on her legs if you try to stand her up. She plays with her toys, but she just recently started grabbing things and actually holding on to them for longer than a few seconds. She started out really good and caught on to breastfeeding great, even better than her older brother who is perfectly normal. She smiled earlier than her brother also. I had no clue that there was anything wrong with her until she just didn't seem to be doing things I thought she should at 6 months. I guess I'm just looking for peace of mind, I'm scared and don't know what to expect.
