: My baby was diagnosed wiyh CP today. He is 9 months old. He moves around on the floor, and can get from room to room. He doesn't sit but he is starting to get up on all four's. They said he will probably never walk, this after a 15 minute assesment. Can they be wrong?
: I don't know what to do but cry!!!
Kim, You don't have to take the first diagnosis as the diagnosis. Try getting a second opinion, it doesn't hurt as long as you keep an open mind. If the second opinion is the same then learn as much as you can about your sons type of C.P. I know I cried when my daughter was
diagnosed and still do every once in a while. God doesn't give his special children to just anyone, he must think an awful lot of you to trust you with one of his special angels. Learn as much as you can, remember that noone knows your son better than you do. They may have the
medical degree but you know your child. Good Luck
