We took Maxim to the neurologist (Dr.Rumyana). She checked the results of the MRI scan and confirmed that everything looks OK and there are no pressure points on Maxim’s facial nerve or anywhere near. Good news.
Chances are, she said, that we won’t need any operations. All we have to do is massage his face about three times a day and ask Dr.Simos for some vitamins.
She also noticed that there were some improvements since our last visit to her about three month ago. She said that now Maxim’s eyes are the same – before you could see that one of his eyes was opened wider than the other. Not anymore though. And she also said that his face is getting better.
Olga can’t see the difference. I can, but only when I compare his current pictures to his older pictures. Hopefully, soon the only thing where it will be obvious will be the pictures.
Maxim’s reflexes were checked and we answered a whole lot of questions about his development and growth and Dr.Rumyana confirmed that he is doing very well in all other departments.
Next time we’ll see her some time in May to see if Maxim’s speech will be affected in any way. I hope not.
