Sai Lakshmi is 2 ½ years old. She came to us when she was just two months old. She is mildly retarded, with developmental delay, hemiplegia, and has a tumor on her brain stem.She had no head control, was very tiny and fragile, her muscles were flaccid and she could only lie in bed and do nothing else. She also had tuberculosis (of which she is now cured). Regular physiotherapy has almost completely changed her. Swiss ball exercises helped her gain head control and the therapist is working to strengthen her hip and abdomen muscles. She can now sit for long periods and even walk with a baby walker!
