We're back in the paediatric today for a review of B's motor progress. He is just over 2 years old now. Pulling himself up to stand and cruising around furniture. He takes some steps when held by both hands but his gait is asymmetrical with a slight dragging of his left leg.

He has marked hyper-mobility and his reflexes remain exaggerated. Muscle tone is slightly low but  this might be related to his hyper-mobility.

I've been researching cerebral palsy and ask the paediatrician about this. She decides to organise an MRI brain scan and do creatinine kinase enzyme levels. Physiotherapy to continue and a review of B once the results of the tests have been received.
