Baby Aiden: A Story of Perseverence and Motherly Love

Sorry this took so long! Aiden Ross is 7 months old he is also a twin. On August 7th we noticed aiden having some weird movements. We went to the dr and his pcp sent us to McClain's childrens in temple for seizures. We were there for 3 days. The de there thought it was seizures. We did a eeg, blood work and a echocardiogram. Besides the blood work everything came back normal. The neurologist said he was perfect it was just baby movement. I knew there was something wrong with him. He was 6 months cant roll over couldnt even grab toys. We got sent home and I just couldnt do nothing. So I did my own research where I found mickeys miracle. I got in touch with Kristie. She made me feel like I wasnt alone. She went above and beyond and got in touch with dr Perry at cooks hospital in fr worth (2 hrs away from us) within 2 days we were admitted into cooks. Dr perry redid a eeg it to came back normal. After observing we discovered aiden autonomic nervous system wasnt developing the way it should. We were sent home. We got set up with ECI physical therapy. Dr david which is who is also on his case felt like it was necessary to do a mri. So on sept 5th we did the mri and it was also normal. We had our first at home physical therapy on sept 6th. Aidens leg and feet muscles are very weak. (Low muscle tone) his shoulder muscles are extremely tight. Which causes the shaking and constant twisting of his hands and feet. He has no control of his limbs. His right side is weaker than his left. Right now we will be doing physical therapy 1 to 2 times a week for a while. Hoping we will be able to get actual diagnosis. We go back to cooks oct 2nd for a follow up.
