It feels wonderful to know that I can take my children to the doctor without having my mom or Steve take us there. The life I'm living is not what I thought it would ever be. Not once in my first six years of being a mother did I think I could take an infant to a well baby check up on my own.
While at the appointment, I was able to carry John into the office, undress him to be weighed and hold him while the doctor talked to me. These are all things that most mothers can do. It's so wonderful that I too can make sure my children are taken care of without asking others to help me in doing so. I'm also happy to say that John is 10lbs 3 oz and has grown 1 1/2 inches in his first month of life. I have so much to celebrate!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
