My 15 year old daughter just got her first job as a personal care assistant for a 5 y/o girl. This is what I know: Child is developmentally 9 mos -- wears diapers, crawls, has feeding tube, and has active seizures. No speech, just code sounds for various things. She is *happy* and has a gorgeous smile.
Mom says she gets sick more and more, colds, etc.
Her twin is normal. My dd is being paid through the CP Association but the mother said her dd does not have CP.
Is it a case of failure to thrive in utero? Would an ultra sound have shown this? Damage to one twin at birth? I don't know much terminology -- just in prenursing, but I found it interesting that this little girl's twin is so robust.
