I’ve talked before about Big Cutie and her stroke story, but if you’ve missed it, here you go!
And now she’s all super high-tech and wears a Walkaide device instead of a DAFO brace, which is extra cool. Seriously. Like Iron Man cool.
So you can read about that special day here.
We even blinged it up to match her dress for her Bat Mitzvah because 13 year old girls are nothing but glam!
But today I want to share some important information with you about Kids Having Strokes and some really basic red flags to look for if you have a little one. For us it was having a dominant hand at a very early age and only using one side of the body for early reaching and crawling. So please read this very simple mini-poster!
And if your baby or a little one you know and love is demonstrating one of these signs, ask your pediatrician!
Because early intervention, physical and occupational therapies and getting her brace have made all the difference in Big Cutie’s world.
It was the hardest question I ever asked.
And I thank G-d every day we did.
