Since that day Maximus has had numerous tests and has been on several medications. It hasn't been a smooth road. There's been a lot of ups and downs; more downs, but Maximus, our little gladiator, is a fighter.
Due to the seizures at such a young age, Maximus is developmentally delayed. He has low muscle tone and can't talk. Just a year and a half ago Maximus started walking; that was such a big deal to everyone around him. He has had physical, speech, and occupational therapy, an early intervention specialist, and has seen feeding teams.
He was recently diagnosed with autism. His big smile can brighten anyone's day. He has stolen the hearts of many. Maximus needs a special needs bed to keep him safe at night; it will also give his mom and dad some peace of mind. Sleeping in a playpen or a toddler/regular bed is not an option as he does not know how to climb down. He's currently sleeping in a mommy made bed on the floor. This is one of many things that Maximus will need.
"Sometimes a small thing you do can mean everything in another person's life."
