When she was
born Alex was in intensive care for 2 weeks with Myconium Aspiration.
She scared us all so much I can hardly remember how bad it was.
She came through this with no permanent effects.
a stroke in Jan 2004 and lost the use of her left side. This is
almost unheard of in a 2 year old. Because she is so young she has
recovered extremely well. The video clips are from just a few weeks
after her stroke . She started walking again after just 6 weeks.
Now she is three
she has a slight lop-sidedness because of the stroke but it is only
noticable if you know her well or watch her carefully. The combined
efforts of half the medical experts in the south east have not found
any cause for the stroke and dont expect it to recur.
