This is Lexi Marie Riddle. Lexi was born December 18 2008 on her scheduled due date. I had some complications from 6 months until delivery with low amniotic fluid. Had some complications at birth with her shoulders getting stuck in the canal, but born a beautiful healthy little girl.
At 9 months we got referred to children's hospital for not meeting the mile stones and small head circumference. Childrens diagnosed Lexi with quadriplegia spastic cerebral palsy, and Epilepsy. This affects all four limbs. Lexi also has seizures . She is unable to sit up, toilet herself, crawl, feed herself,stand, and walk on her own she relies on someone for these needs. Equipment can help her work toured these goals.
Lexi is now 7 years old and in 1st Grade. She receives pt, ot, and speech at school daily as well as out patient service for pt,ot and speech once a week. I am so blessed to be her mother and helper. You would never know anything was wrong with her. She is always smiling and laughing. And a very determined little young lady. Her smile and attitude is what gets me though everyday. Her smile just melts your heart.
I am very excited for her to be able to become a Reagan's journey child. And also get to make some new friends for both Lexi and I.
