My son Lorenzo had a stroke while delivering him or after. I had a great pregnancy up until it was time to delivery. The next morning he was brought in my room from the nursery. I noticed his arm was swinging uncontrollably. I got the nurse and she thought he was just cold. They took him to get circumcise , that's when they found out he was having a seizure. The next day that's when I found out he had a stroke. A stroke??? My child... I was distraught and depressed... He's now five years old :). Such a happy and beautiful little boy. He's currently in speech therapy and occupational for sensor processing disorder. He has a visual and fine motor delay, But he's getting better. I'm happy he's alive and he's a part of my life. He's motivated me in so many aspects of my life. I love him.
