I explained in another post that in Seattle, the University of Washington had begun a study to families with Joubert syndrome, but we had children with apraxia who also could send Ocular Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI and toughest test to which it has submitted my hjo), it is quite true that ocular apraxia occur at the neuronal level, ie, in the brain, where there is usually little more or less, that is, problems in the cerebellum or somewhere, deficits of neural connections, etc .... but of course, one thing to know, for 6 years that your child has ocular apraxia (of course with all that entails which is a slow motor weakness and speech), and another is to be told that your child has Joubert Syndrome, although it is very mild.
Well, that's what happened and we are still digesting. From the University of Washington I confirmed that what happened to Arnau has Joubert Syndrome, and I saw the MRI he conducted six years ago ... AND DID ANYONE ELSE SEE.
I'm angry, we are angry, surprised, angry, and stronger than ever. How can anyone see? ... Not lying if I say I have thought about taking measures since Arnau track should have been more thorough, but luckily nothing happened.
Our son is surrounded by many people, some are true-as inútilos, with title-as clowns who have failed to see what we saw, they said that what they had was something that exercise was managed, from all the information that I have compiled and already indicate that apraxia is the "little sisters of the ataxias, Jouberts etc". And although some of these little characters-as followed by my son, I have also fortunate to have a doctor (neurologist Federico Ramos) who has shown great interest, and that seeing the MRI confirmed the diagnotico. Good person is a doctor with a big heart and an eminence, at last our son will be in good hands.
Arnau only affected the physical and very little, the truth is that with Regina, Alberto Jo Lee and Sergi, Helena and Núria (with which I will soon) is much improved, and patience, dedication, and work that they all do with our little shows. Plus they do not stop with home readings, papers, everything, but not by much. Although there is an aspect as important as any exercise, therapy or study, and it is love; give much love, tell him you love him every day, which is great, all this helps in improving muchísmo any ailment.
And do not forget the food. now going to be more important, as Joubert syndrome can cause kidney and liver failure, so you have to watch the food and try the food as natural as possible.
From now starts another era, apraxia and joubert .... we go for them, the solution to the improvement, at all.
