This pretty, little girl is Evelyn. She was born in 2014 and is said to like listening to music and dancing. Evelyn has a list of issues that she is slowly being helped to get past. Her diagnoses are tuberous sclerosis; mental retardation; epilepsy; hypoplasia of laryngeal cartilage. A report from
August of 2019 says the following: Evelyn can walk alone and go up and down stairs alone. She can reach out to take the object she wants by herself. She can use the spoon to eat, knows when she is full and can put the spoon down after eating. She can catch a ball. She can speak simple overlapped words such as, “mama, baba”. She wants to sing after hearing the music or the sister singing, but her singing is not clear. She can imitate speaking one sentence, but it is not clear and she speaks in a low, rough and hoarse voice. Presently she has seizures “once more than 10 days” (once every ten days??) She takes the antiepileptic drugs every day. She is active, likes singing and dancing, likes playing with her mates, knocks and pats the toy simply after getting it, often raises her thumb up and says “great, great”. Please reach out to us if you want to read her full report. We have x-rays of her esophagus. We are also working on obtaining a video of her as soon as possible.
