Colin

At 2½ months, Colin was diagnosed with epilepsy. After gaining partial control of his seizures, at 4½ months, he was diagnosed with infantile spasms. This is another form of epilepsy that has a lasting effect. The spasms caused severe developmental delay and overall declined health. Since the diagnosis, Colin has had pneumonia twice, a severe stomach virus, and several upper respiratory and auditory infections which have lead him to multiple specialists to care for him. At 10½ months, he is currently under the care of a pulmonologist, gastro-enterologist, ENT, ophthalmologist, and neurologist. Due to his delays, Colin is barely able to sit on his own, eat pureed foods, or crawl, all things that a 10 month old should be doing. There is no solid prognosis for Colin's condition. We do not know if he will ever be able to do the things that all children should be able to do. Only time will tell.
