Is there such a thing as mild cp? My daughter was born having lots of difficulties at birth. The cord was wrapped around her neck and she was in a lot of stress during delivery. She had edema and a brainbleed. She started having seizures when she was only a few hours old. Her doctors said that the seizures were probably caused by the brainbleed. An MRI showed that there was some damage to the frontal part of the brain. They said that she could have learning disabilities and problems with speech. The PT who saw her at birth said that she was very floppy and had weak muscle tone. Her neurologist told us when she was 2 mo. old that there was a possibility that she could have CP. Well we didn't want to believe him because by all outward appearances, she was a "normal baby" and we really didn't want to admit that that could be a possibility. She did not sit up without support until she was 9 mo. of age. And she didn't walk until she was 15 mo. She started seeing a speech therapist when she was 2 1/2 years old. She is now 6 years old and is diagnosed with epilepsy. She didn't have anymore seizures after she was born until she was 2 1/2 and then they said that it was a fever seizure. But then last year on Memorial Day (what a day!) she had a really bad seizure where she convulsed on her right side. She has strabismus. And she is still in treatment for that. She's had 2 surgeries but her right eye still turns inward. She still can't pedal a bike. She still has to go to speech therapy for articulation problems. She is progressing fine in that but her therapist said that she still has trouble with sk blends. And sounds that have to be produced at the back of the throat and her muscle tone is weak there. She can now run but very awkwardly. She goes to her neurologist in April for another EEG and I will ask him about this when I see him.
Yes, there is such a thing as mild CP. It sounds more to me like your daugter suffered brain damage due to her brain bleeds and seizures. Not that she has mild CP. CP is one of those "jack of all conditions" diagnoses. It would be best to wait until your daughter's next neuro exam. Ask a TON of questions, like if maybe its not CP but rather brain damage caused by the bleed in her brain when she was born. Ask as many questions as you can, all that are on your mind. Write them down. Best of luck to you.
