    Default Stroke in utero

    hi all, im a new mummy with a beautiful 10 week old son. when he was born elijah showed no signs of anything wrong then within 24hours he started to have seizures and was quickly rushed to the NICU at liverpool (we had him at campbelltown) not long after that it was found that he suffered from three strokes in utero, all effecting the left side of the brain. the doctors ofcourse had to give us the worst outcomes ie may not walk, or talk or may be delayed. But heres the thing, at 2 weeks he rolled over on the change table and has since taken a liking to rolling both ways on the floor, he moves all his limbs equally and extremly well (our paed ruled out cerebal pausely), we have been told his muscle tone is far more advanced then his age and we have just had confirmation that he is teething,he smiles,is so alert, and holds great eye contact. the only way to know of his rough start is by looking at scans otherwise he is like any other baby, i have every faith that he will continue to advance beautifully but was just curious if anyone else was in a similiar situation and what the outcome has been so far?
    Its just that he is if anything moving faster through his milestones not slower. i would love to hear from other people in similar situations.

    I have no personal experience, but things sound so positive for your son, given his difficult start! I hope he continues to progress so well.

    all the best
