Mianique van der Walt was born at 34 weeks on the 20th of November 2017. She weighed 1.7 kg and was in ICU for a week. She did not achieve her milestones like children her age, so she went to see a Pediatrician who sent her for a CT scan; and diagnosed her with spastic cerebral palsy.
Mianique is a little angel from heaven with so much love for everything around her. She is turning 5 years old in November 2022. She has to wear nappies and she still drinks her formula milk to help with weight maintenance. She still can`t crawl or walk, but can sit for a few minutes on her own, and she is trying her best to crawl two steps.
She continues with speech therapy, physio, and occupational therapy, and she can now also count to 10! She is seeing a dietician and she must soon attend her appointment at the eye clinic. Mianique was also for a big operation on her legs in September 2020.
In January 2021, Mianique started with epileptic seizures; she now has epilepsy and is taking Epilim medication. The doctor is concerned about high blood pressure therefore she is being monitored when she has headaches and nose bleeds.
Mianique was scheduled to have another big operation on her legs and muscles in June 2021, but this was postponed and they are currently still awaiting feedback.
