I know it has been awhile, but I wanted to give an update on Karina's status via this posting. On January 11th 2007, it will mark the 18th month since Karina had her stroke and she will be 2 yrs and 9 months old as of that date. Still no definite cause as to "why" she had her stroke but she is managing with her therapy although she only receives services once a week due to financial constraints; insurance situation, etc... Karina had a left MCA stroke which left her weak on her right side with visual deficits and right hemiplegia. We, as her family, are coping and she is making strides and we pray for her recovery every day. Would appreciate any and all support/comments, as we do not have any support groups set up in our community at this time. Thank you!
