Hi There ladies,
Well after I put Ryan back to bed he decided to get sick,had to put him in the tub and change all the linen on his bed. Poor kid hasn't been well in a few days now,if he's not better by tomorrow I am going to take him to the doc.
Well, I guess I should get some food into me,haven't had anything yet and it's already noon.
Wendy

Cerebral Palsy Explained


Cerebral palsy or CP is a group of permanent disorders associated with
developmental brain injuries that occur during fetal development, birth, or shortly
after birth. It is characterized by a disruption of motor skills, with symptoms such as
spasticity, paralysis, or seizures. Cerebral palsy is a form of static encephalopathy.
One form of it, spastic diplegia, is sometimes known as Little's disease in the United
Kingdom. Properly speaking, the fact that CP does not get better or worse (gait and
posture can get worse over time if left untreated) implies that it is a 'condition'
(chronic nonprogressive neurological disorder) rather than a 'disease.' The
incidence is about 1.5 to 4 per 1000 live births. There is no cure, but therapy has
been shown to be helpful in the maintenance of motor functions. While severity
varies widely, cerebral palsy ranks among the most costly congenital conditions to
manage.

Cerebral palsy develops while the brain is under development. 80% of all cases
occur before the baby reaches 1 month old, however this disorder can occur within
about the first 5 years of life. It is a nonprogressive disorder; once damage to the
brain occurs, no additional damage occurs as a result of this condition. Cerebral
palsy neither improves nor worsens, though symptoms may seem to increase with
time, likely due to the aging process.

History
Cerebral palsy, then known as "Cerebral Paralysis", was first identified by a British
surgeon named William Little in 1860. Little raised the possibility of asphyxia during
birth as a chief cause of the disorder. It was not until 1897 that Sigmund Freud
suggested that a difficult birth was not the cause but rather only a symptom of other
effects on fetal development. Modern research has shown that asphyxia is not
found during birth in at least 75% of cases. Such research also shows that Freud's
view was correct, even though during the late 19th century and most of the 20th
century Little's view was the traditional explanation. ("Conditions", 9)

Cause
Since cerebral palsy refers to a group of disorders, there is no exact known cause.
Some major causes are asphyxia, hypoxia of the brain, birth trauma or premature
birth, genetic susceptibility, certain infections in the mother during and before birth,
central nervous system infections, trauma, and consecutive hematomas. In most
people with CP, the cause is unknown. After birth, the condition may be caused by
toxins, physical brain injury, incidents involving hypoxia to the brain (such as
drowning), and encephalitis or meningitis. Despite all of these causes, the cause of
many individual cases of cerebral palsy is unknown.

Recent research has demonstrated that asphyxia is not the most important cause as
it was once considered to be, though it still plays a role, probably accounting for
about 10 percent of all cases. The research has shown that infections in the mother,
even infections that are not easily detected, may triple the risk of the child
developing the disorder.

Premature babies have a higher risk because their organs are not yet fully
developed. This increases the risk of asphyxia and other injury to the brain, which in
turn increases the incidence of cerebral palsy.

Incidence and prevalence
The incidence is about 1.5 to 4 per 1000 live births. This amounts to approximately
5,000-10,000 babies born with cerebral palsy each year in the United States. Each
year, around 1,500 preschoolers are diagnosed with the disorder. In around 70
percent of all cases, cerebral palsy is found with some other disorder, the most
common being mental ******ation. Other disorders paired with CP include disorders
of hearing, eyesight, epilepsy, perception of obstacles, speech difficulties, and
eating and drinking difficulties.

Overall, advances in care of pregnant mothers and their babies has not resulted in a
noticeable decrease in cerebral palsy. Only the introduction of quality medical care
to locations with less than adequate medical care has shown any decreases. The
incidence increases with premature or very low-weight babies regardless of the
quality of care. Twins are also four times more likely to develop cerebral palsy than
single births, and triplets are more likely still to develop it.

Despite medical advances, the incidence and severity of cerebral palsy has actually
increased over time. This may be attributed to medical advances in areas related to
premature babies or the increased usage of artificial fertilization techniques.

Signs and Symptoms)
All types of cerebral palsy are characterized by abnormal muscle tone, posture,
reflexes, or motor development and coordination. The classical symptoms are
spasticity, paralysis, seizures, unsteady gait, and dysarthria. While mental
******ation and cerebral palsy do not cause each other, the two disorders are found
together in approximately 20%-30% of all persons with cerebral palsy. CP
symptomatology is as diverse as the individuals who have it. Secondary symptoms
can include rigidity of limbs, bladder control issues, and impaired tongue movement,
or difficulties with spatial perception.

Prognosis
Cerebral Palsy is not a progressive disorder. A person with the disorder may
improve somewhat during childhood, if he or she receives extensive care from
specialists. While the brain injury is non-progressive, evidence suggests that
functional decline occurs in persons with CP in adulthood. Functional decline can
encompass decrease in range of motion, decrease or loss of ambulation, and
increased pain. In essence, it appears that adults with CP undergo an acelerated
aging process compared to their non-disabled peers. Onset of arthritis and
osteoporosis can occur much sooner in adults with CP. Further research is needed
on adults with CP, as the current literature body is highly focused on the pediatric
patient.

The ability to live independently with cerebral palsy varies widely depending on
severity of the disability. Some individuals with CP will require personal assistant
services for all activities of daily living. Others can live semi-independently in the
community with support for certain activities. Still others can live with complete
independence. The need for personal assistance often changes with increasing age
and the associated functional decline. However, in all except the most severe of
cases, persons with CP can expect to have a normal life expectancy. As the
condition does not directly affect reproductive function, many persons with CP can
have children and parent successfully.

Treatment
There is no cure for cerebral palsy, but various forms of therapy can help a person
with the disorder to function more effectively. Nevertheless, there is only some
benefit from life-long care. The treatment is usually symptomatic and focuses on
helping the person to develop as many motor skills as possible or to learn how to
compensate for the lack of them. The disorder does not affect the expected length
of life so treatment focuses on quality of life issues. Non-speaking people with
cerebral palsy are often successful availing of Augmentative and Alternative
Communication systems such as Blissymbols

Hi All and welcome to Swan Dive! How is everyone doing?? I'm beat,been looking after a sick kid all day,no time to exercise,that sucks because I feel really motivated to do it! If I can't do it I think I might get lazy and not want to do it tomorrow.So when the boy goes to bed tonight I am going to get my butt in gear and just do the 1 hour workout! That should be enough to put me out for the night!
So I had pasta for dinner tonight and I went a little overboard with it,nothing major just an extra cup full,pasta is my downfall,I realise I can live without the potato chips,but not the pasta!!!
I get to weigh myself in 3 days,I hope I lost at least 2lbs!!Thats my goal for this week,baby steps,baby steps!!!!
Catch you all later!
Wendy
