Laila

My daughter, Laila was born at 28 weeks!!  I was told by her doctor today that she had
an ultra sound done on her head and she was a grade 3.  I am not sure exactly what that
means.  Can someone explain to me what is a grade 3, what causes the extra blood in the
brain, and how will effect her when she gets older?
