Hi, my name is Ashley. I have been on cafemom for a while now. I just joined the group and wanted to introduce myself. I am 22. I have a little girl named Alyssa. She is 2 years old. She has severe complex partial seizures, and she is very delayed in her motor skills. She cannot grab things, crawl, push herself up on tummy time, walk, talk, etc. She just got a g tube nov 30th, when she ate by mouth she aspirated. So for now she cannot have anything by mouth. Since her g tube surgery, she went from having 5 seizures a day, to now, one or none. She is able to roll to both her sides now since she has not been having as many seizures. She is finally able to hold some objects (She use to be able to hold things before the seizures started at 4 months. She was developing normal.) She is laughing and smile, and gets excited when I sign mommy to her in baby signs. She has been through so much, but is now progressing rapidly. They think she will live a normal life.
I got married June 24, 2011. I have been with my husband for almost four years now. We have 5 pets :). I am a stay at home mommy, I do have my cosmetology license though.
This seems like a fun group. I look forward to getting to know you ladies.
