Her prognosis on leaving, three and a half months later, was 'wait and see but it doesn't look good'.
Emma had no vision, hearing, mobility or the ability to sit up or feed herself. She was in a vegetative newborn state.
Now, three years on and following continuous appointments and rehabilitation Emma can see, she can hear with a cochlear implant, is learning to jump on her own and can feed herself. She has epilepsy, hydrocephalus, autistic tendencies, is light and touch-sensitive, profoundly deaf and has global developmental delay where she is currently functioning as a two year old (she is five).
