After many weeks, many doctors, MRIs, spinal taps, blood work, X-rays, and a brief stay at another children’s hospital, we were finally given a diagnosis, Transverse Myelitis. Then the words “there is no cure.” As young parents, we were terrified and our heads were spinning. We just couldn’t process it all. The doctors FINALLY began steroid treatment which helped bring down the inflammation in her spinal cord. She slowly began moving her fingers and arms. She was finally breathing normally. Before we knew it, the doctors were telling us we were going home. Home? But she hasn’t regained movement in her legs. That’s when we were told that may never happen. We packed up our things and headed home to start our new “normal.” This would consist of doctors’ appointments (sometimes weekly), physical therapy, MRIs every 6 months, and orthotic bracing.
