DId you say she had MRi with contrast to rule out Sturge Weber Syndrome?

If you need more information, please let me know and I can direct you to the SWS Community.

Laser will probably be very beneficial for your daughter. I know December seems like a long time to wait...but it will be here before you know it. Enjoy your baby as they grow up so quickly. I know the UNKNOWN is often the hardest part. Hang in there.

Thanks foe the nice reply Corinne , we have an MRI booked for next month - her eyes have been tested and the results came back all clear.
You are right - it is the unknown waiting to see how effective lasers are that is an agonizing wait!!!.

We also had to wait what seemed like forever for our first treatment. Our son was 8 months old for his first. It will come quicker than you think!

And our Doctor promised us the whole thing would be harder on me and my Husband than it was on my son...she was right.

I just thought it might be reassuring to let you know that I was born with a PWS, and at age 15, it is almost completely gone because of treatments
