Sadly the stroke had resulted in hydrocephalus and this made for major brain damage. Right away we were presented with therapists and doctors galore, thanks to medicaid. We would never have been able to provide these things for our daughter otherwise. We have multiple specialists and therapists to this day, and Vivian will soon be 7.
Yes, she is still very behind, but every time she reaches a new milestone and the doctors say "wow, we never thought she would be able to do that" I know it is in large part to medicaid being there for us and providing the doctors, therapists, and equipment Vivian needs everyday.
