On May 10, 2006, at only 6 months old, Sophie was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms...a RARE and CATASTROPHIC form of epilepsy. She continues to battle this disorder on a daily basis. Only after she had the majority of her left hemisphere of her brain removed (on May 29, 2009) has she had a relief in seizures (though she continues to show spiking in her EEG). She has shown much improvement in development since the surgery.

Sophie loves balls. She loves saying the word ball, she loves kicking the ball, she loves throwing the ball...anything to do with a ball. I don't know if it is because she can say the word or if she said the word because she loves the ball.
