Hi Parents! I'm new here and was wondering if anyone is going through the same thing. I have identical twin girls who just turned 17 months today. They were 8 weeks early so they are 15 months adjusted. Lake, (twin A) developed NEC which caused her to have 3 surgeries and a 4 month NICU stay plus a numerous amount of hospital stays. She is now short gut and still has bowel issues. Anyway, her DR told me she would probably be a little behind because just of how sick she was. Well up until a few months ago she was completely on track. The last couple months I have noticed a lot of issues with her, At first I blew it off but a few weeks decided it was time to ask her pedi about it. Her pedi is considered with some of her symptoms. Early intervention is coming on Friday to get the process of getting her evaluated. I am also getting her hearing tested to make sure she can hear clearly. Some of her signs are... she doesn't gesture, point, wave etc. She doesn't make eye contact or answer to her name. She only says on word and doesn't even try to babble. She also is regressing..she used to wave, give kisses, and say a couple more words but doesn't anymore. She also has issues with loud noises. She hits her self every time she hears loud noises, for example when the dog barks. She has rocking episodes as well. If anyone dealt with some of the same issues what was the outcome? Thanks!
