I would like to first say that I did not check over this so it may not make sense and most likely is me rambling.
We have been putting off updates on Logans MRI results because we had to have some other tests ran to verify any other possibilities. The results from the MRI in laymans terms is that the back of Logans brain is smooth and there is brain malformation which leads to the cerebral palsy. When the brain is developing it is supposed to have a ribboning on the cortex and there are portions on his brain that are not developing properly. The good news is the chromosome and gene testing (that took over six weeks for results) we had done came back negative, as in good news. We are so grateful for these results and will be seeing the genetics doctor this week that saw Logan in the NICU.
There is a lot of information the neurologist hit us with yesterday and we are still trying to digest all of it. Here is a short list: there are some ventricles in Logans brain that are enlarged, the white matter is not complete but it could still form, and the grey matter is not normal.
Right now other than therapy we just have to wait and see how Logan will progress and develop over the next few years. There is not anything that can be done to "fix" his brain, Logan still has physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy and we are also looking into other therapy possibilities. One of our focuses right now is to get Logan to sit by himself, after that we will work on standing, and the possibility of walking is still there. As you know Brandon and I are both very stubborn and determined people and we will never give up on any possibilities for Logan. He is extremely motivated and the girls keep that motivation going all day long.
I am sure we will be doing another update in the next couple of weeks to keep everyone updated on everything and any new progress or information we learn.
Love and hugs!
