A Future in Law Enforcement?

Evie, an in utero stroke survivor with right-side weakness, has been working on her dressing skills with her occupational therapist for several weeks. Just yesterday morning, she pushed her right arm and hand through the sleeve of her long-sleeved shirt without instruction or assistance! Although this may seem like a small achievement, it is evidence of her ever increasing use of her affected side. She is well on her way to doing great things... maybe even in law enforcement! Watch out speeders!

  1. Hi Evie's mom,

    Congratulations on Evie's progress. Since when has she been seeing by the Therapists? Thanks for the information.

    My daughter suffered from stroke 2 months ago, she is 8 months now.

  2. Hello,
    I am also new to this wonderful site. I would love to chat with your about your experiences. My child also suffered a stroke in-utero. It is so very hard to find someone who understands the roller coaster of emotions that we go through.

  3. Congrats to Evie... You must be so proud! That is a big accomplishment!! Congrats again.
    My daughter daughter is an in utero stroke survivor.Her right side too was effected..That is one of the goals that we have been working on right now. So I do understand how big this is for you guys. Congrats again!!!!
    P.S Love the pic
