The desired pregnancy was proceeding well, all ultrasounds and tests were normal, but Vika was born too early at 27 weeks, very tiny, weighing only 945 grams and 33 cm tall. Hemorrhage on the fourth day, the month of resuscitation, difficult diagnoses and disappointing forecasts of doctors in the future. Due to premature birth, the child developed hydrocephalus, severe damage to the central nervous system, partial atrophy of the optic nerve, etc. At three months, Vika was transferred to the neurosurgical department, where she underwent an operation to impose a VPS (ventriculoperitoneal bypass grafting) and another month of intensive care, and then transfer to the pulmonary branch. Scary days, weeks, months are behind. And now, 6 months after the birth of the child, they were discharged home. From the day of discharge, Vika's family has been fighting for her daughter's health in all ways: massages, injections, constant exercise therapy in rehabilitation centers. At six months, Vika learned to roll over from her back to her stomach, at 8 months to keep her head confidently. Each rehabilitation struggles with the diagnosis - moderate cerebral palsy, spastic tetraparesis, operated internal hydrocephalus, of course, brings its results. At 1 year 11 months. Vika learned to crawl on her bellies. Now at 2 g and 8 months, Vika can talk, is actively interested in the world around her, sits and walks with support, her balance has improved, support in her legs has appeared, she is trying to crawl on all fours. Each rehabilitation strengthens the back muscles and helps to reduce muscle tone in the legs and arms in order to fully learn to sit and walk. Vika has become stronger and more resilient, and the doctors give great chances for a full recovery.
