Pediatric Stroke Facts

Today is a busy day and I know I won’t have time for a longer post so I am sharing a fact sheet about pediatric stroke. I am taking a writing class on Thursday evenings – so happy to get to do something for myself!

Mia’s stroke happened sometime in the week before her MRI which was done when she was 3 days old, so it could have been in utero or during or shortly after birth. Nurses noticed her seizure activity and that led to the diagnosis of her stroke.

Early diagnosis and very proactive care and support for Mia’s development are a huge part of what has helped Mia to thrive.

Here’s a picture of Zoe from yesterday. Sometimes it’s tough to be the typically developing sister. I think that’ll be the subject of another post.


This post is part of my streak of posts in the month of May to spread awareness about pediatric stroke. If you’re able, please consider donating to support Children’s Hemiplegia and Stroke Association.
