Our daughter has a MRI scan scheduled two weeks from now, but upon doing my own research I truly feel she has CP. She can walk, but has a strange gait. She holds her left arm in close to her body, or swings it randomly. She also has weaker muscle tone on her left side and 1/2 a centimeter shorter arm and leg (again, left side). All signs point to a mild form of CP. Sh has a vocab at 19 months of about 20 words, dances, draws/colors, follow instructions well, and seems quite "normal" mentally. She even uses her left hand to do almost everything she does with her right (feeds herself with spoon and fork - even cereal and milk!, throws a ball, etc.)
I know the MRI will just confirm what I already know, though. I feel it in my heart.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Especially mild cases? Everything I google has the cases where children can't walk, or need assistance. I think DD is going to need some therapy, but I feel that she can lead a normal life. I guess I am just looking for anyone out there with any advice, or anything at all! I am really at a loss here.
