I just read an article about H1N1 and children with CP. Here is the link:
I don't really understand why there is such an increased number of children with CP that died as a result of getting the swine flu. The article states that some of these children also had a bacterial infection at the same time but not all of them did. I have a 2-year-old child who is 26 week preemie. He has hydrocephalus and has mild CP. He has also had 2 seizures (one brought on by lack of sleep and the other from a stomach virus). We have 2 school aged children and I am concerned about the swine flu this season. Any thoughts on this connection or the swine flu in general???
