- Case #Brooke
Brooke was born prematurely, at 31-32 weeks, in September 2013. Subsequently she was hospitalized several times and was ultimately diagnosed with virus-associated encephalopathy, microcephaly, epilepsy, atrophy of the visual nerves, and hip dysplasia. She has significant developmental delays.
Sweet Brooke is a quiet little girl who sleeps well, calms quickly when upset, and responds positively to familiar voices. She cannot roll over or hold her head up and does not imitate sounds nor appear to understand others speech. Long interactions with adults increase her anxiety and she seems to prefer being by herself. Brookes epilepsy is well-controlled via several anti-seizure medications. She is tube fed due to swallowing difficulties and eats with a good appetite.
Brooke needs specialized care and a family who is capable of handling her multiple medical needs.
