Brooke’s Journey (Good Friday Appeal )
look without swimming playing baseball playing tennis pretty much leaving quite a normal life up until the age of nine. Initially we were told it was a very very mild cerebral palsy than some good early interventionists and good therapy that you know wasn’t going to be too bad and that was when we ask to be referred to Andrew. Brooke has a condition which is best termed as dystonia dystonia is virtually the worst form of cramp you could imagine it doesn’t matter what you do you can’t release these cramps and its entire bodies it’s as though she ran five marathons in a row and writhing in pain she’s got a look of pain on her face and because I think we can do for her.
she woke up one morning and I noticed her shoulder had dropped from that point on it was a continual struggle she was having much more trouble walking we tried medications and a variety of different medicines many of the drugs she was put on the side effects were so great they outweigh any benefit that we were going to get were frequent visitors to emergency because you’d start to lock into really uncomfortable positions painful positions to be exhausted that you could get no relief.
she looked at me she said I’m broken. It was new and it wasn’t really done on children. I can remember the first time she woke up and her DBS is at the called was turned on and she’s watching her feet and she could actually straighten them up the look on her face to actually be able to straighten her feet up was amazing. Brooke has gone from being totally dependent not walking to doing things that she hasn’t done for six years the best thing is that I am learning to walk again and I want to do that so that I can take my dog for a walk you I get to go to school all the time and go out he now she’s still learning to do different things but have felt so last week she actually learn to tie your shoelaces whatever the future holds for I just wanted her to be happy and could be the best you can be nothing more.
