Maxmax-jan-2017Little Max was born in February 2014 and has been diagnosed with bilirubin encephalopathy, cerebral palsy, and first degree hypotrophy. Max had ABO and rhesus incompatibility with his birth mother for which he received a blood transfusion after he was born.

Max does not yet have head control, but he can open his hands and move his fingers. He recognizes his caregivers and smiles at them when they speak to him. He enjoys physical affection.

Update January 2017: Max has come a very long way and is doing great. He cruises (or as his caregivers say races) against stable support, but can also walk unassisted. He understands and follows instructions and shows appropriate responses to interactions. He does not like to be in trouble with his caregivers and enjoys cleaning up the toys. Max babbles and says a few words, loves music and makes sure he is noticed among all the boys in his group.
