  • It is amazing how adaptable the human brain is.There are a number of cases where children have had to have HALF of their brain removed (due to non stop convulsions) and after convalesense they are to all intents and purposes compleatly normal.Your daughter is now walking. It is possibly that if she had never had the MRI you would never have known about this condition. Best wishes
