Hello, My 5 month old has IP and was born with blood clots in her brain. The doctors told me she had a stroke when she was born. She has weakness on the left side of her body. does anybody know of someone who has had a stroke that young? Please help.
I'm told that I have IP. I have two boys the eldest (7yrs) is 100% normal and then I have a 3 Yr old who had a stroke just after birth. He is also weak on his left side (called left hemipleagic). You can find a lot of information on the HEMIKIDS site. Join them for support and help.
