Such a stressful week.

Well, Edda has been diagnosed as having both mental and physical disabilities. We took her to a specialist at the Children’s Development Clinic at the KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital downtown and the doctor did a full hour-long assessment on Edda. So what we had suspected for many months finally got medically diagnosed.

So, what will Edda be like when she grows up? Will she walk? Will she dance? Will she talk? Will she read? Well, these are questions I want answered, but I won’t be able to answer for a while. Lots of crying around here, but also some sort of relief as we go forward with therapy, testing, etc, etc.

She’s a happy girl and enjoys being with us. Well see what happens.
