Two months of age Scrooge surgery Helsinki university children's clinic. Parents worry not however, I missed it.
Scrooge had one surgery the morning after the seizure. The penalties when it turned out that he had suffered a cut in a lack of oxygen, the mother Marjut Mäkelä tell.
the News overwhelms the fresh mom.
– I'll always Remember that in August the hottest day of the shock of the doctors informs Scrooge to stay cerebral palsy would be the lack of oxygen, Marjut sighs.
cerebral palsy diagnosis, however, soon called into question. The family received the next day a small hope. The doctor said seizures and changes in EEG.there may be due to the long surgery.
Scrooge got home a couple of months after surgery. We followed, of course, precisely his development and we are waiting with bated breath for her first smile, father, Sami Järvinen recalls.the Final diagnosis roope Järvinen living with intellectual disabilities within the supported in the dormitory.

Doctors had awakened immediately after surgery, the interest of Scrooge's blood vessels, which they lacked throughout the elasticity.
the Family ushered in the end of the control during the visit the children's clinic the heredity of the doctor's office. They received that was the first time I heard of Scrooge's developing into, possibly, Williams syndrome.
Us the name of the disease does not tell me anything, because we had never heard of one, Sami Järvelä says.
Scrooge had a definitive diagnosis of FISH chromosomes for research after when he was one and a half years old. Diagnosis no parents no longer shock.
Diagnosis is not at that stage attracted a bigger shock, because we had already been given a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. The new diagnosis, the earlier turns out to be wrong, Marjut Mäkelä says.
the Syndrome detection after the start of the regular heart control studies, which keep the family in suspense for a number of years.

Scrooge's development progress over the years at their own pace. Crawl he learned from a physical therapist, and her first tentative steps he will take to the therapist years and seven months of age.
Roopella had development delays, but also other symptoms, such as, inter alia, the disease related to a typical problem swallowing.
Coarse food yökötytti, and drooling was a lot. Scrooge is also not tolerated, for example, a vacuum cleaner sounds and loud banging. This meant that our home construction site visits were not Roope's favorite. He took already the courtyard upon entering the ear closed, Sami Järvinen recalls.
Also, Scrooge's speech development is delayed, and he needed speech therapy and sign language. Marjut Mäkelä, speech is still a problem.
– Now an adult speech production is difficult. We have thought it due to surgery lack of oxygen, because Williams syndrome are usually verbally talented.
Scrooge is very musical, like many others from the same illness suffer. Parents said the boy simply loves music.
He was smaller, very enthusiastic about Lord, and also Hake have been important. Scrooge's biggest music idol is, however, Anne Mattila . Her song to Cancel the wedding is Scrooge's number one favourite at karaoke, Marjut Mäkelä smiles.

we Felt it important that Scrooge get to practice independence skills and in the everyday life of survival. Migration brought more content everyday life, and he doesn't always need to be just with mother and father Sami father said.
Also the mother is happy opened the possibility.
– Is a lotto win for all of us, that such a supported dormitory was built just 400 meters away from our home. Scrooge spend in the dormitory for a week and on the weekends, he comes as a rule home.
Although Scrooge can't read or write, can he keep the “kämpiltään” our parents contacted by telephone.

Marjut Mäkelä said Scrooge brought the family to life a lot of good. The mother is grateful every day.
Scrooge is adaptable, kind and social. The dissimilarity is brought about a lot of things, with which we would not have otherwise been making. Dissimilarity may also be wealth, he summed up.

– Especially Scrooge's childhood years health problem burdening the whole family. This meant that also the big brother Teemu have to be flexible in many things.
– special children and as parents we have also had to fight for the children benefits for the municipality as well as the Coil. Such a situation is naturally the load increasing.
Scrooge has always needed an adult presence, guidance and care. One problem is the traffic, what he doesn't know how to watch out for.
– It means that you alone pass. Only ”kämpiltään” Scrooge has become home alone, because the distance is short and the route of the transport vehicles. Scrooge can also ride a tricycle going for it on fourth and is in older age learned to swim, Sami Järvelä says.
Parents experience peer support is very important. They have been in contact with other Williams Fenomenbet families, inter alia, the Facebook-group.
