So the neurologist talked with me in length about Nathan's NICU stay and my concerns... I even brought pictures for him to look at that showed how small he was and how bad his oxygen levels sometimes were..

He did a few things with Nate and said Nathan is pretty hypotonic... he has low muscle tone and muscle control. Which is why he scored a 0/12 on the motor skills assessment at school.

He's also a little concerned about Nathan's weight/height.
I told him I had been concerned as well but the pediatricians keep telling me as long as he is growing it's nothing to worry about it.

So he ordered a full endocrine work up (thyroid, prolactin, testosterone) and is checking growth hormones. If those are off it could account for the hypotonia.

We go back on November 11th for a brain wave scan thingy and am EMG test.
Then back on November 26th for all the results.
He says if anyone asks just tell them Nathan has numerous developmental delays..

I said * I already do*. We go to his first OT session on Friday morning!

We had the OT evaluation this morning and They've recommended that Nathan receive physical therapy and occupational therapy 2x a week for at least 6 months...
He scored very low on the assessment today... he pretty much has the physical strength of a 16-18 month old instead of a 4 yr old

I'm glad that you are getting some intervention set up for him. What is his diagnosis, or does he have one??

all of Nathan's issues are directly related to prematurity.. he was born when I was 24 weeks pregnant...
