I will tell you what the neurologist told us.

The PVL is independent of William's IVH (brain bleed). It is also not a result of his prematurity and that the injury occured sometime in utero around 26 weeks. It is terrible to know that he may have been better off if he had been more premature.

His PVL is not a mild case and he most likely will have cerbral palsy... 95% likely. She noted that a motor reflex of his (sorry, can't remember which one) is already abnormal and indicates that there is motor involvement with his brain injury. She said we need to hope that there is no cogintive involvement.

So that's it, in a nutshell.
