Hello Dr.Miao,

Good news from Indonesia......

Now titi's neck more stronger than before. Going up can count to 47, before in Beijing only 25. Today when I train him to crawl, his bottom and head sometime can go up. But his hand still can't control and coordinate it. He also can use short straw. Hope in the future he will more and more improve :). Amen!

Hello again,

Forgot to inform you that now titi have more improvement. The neck more stronger and stronger. When I put him on sit positition, he can lift his body up when the body and the head falls.

That's why I want to give titi glasses for his eyes, so I hope it will help him to see around and help his neck stay in good position. His right hand also now more active, and the spastic and clonus in his feet more reduce. But spastic in his two hand still :(

Thank you for the stemcell injection, hope in the next improvement will be more and more good and big improve hehe......

Love,
Titi's Mom

Thank You.

Best Regards,
Hanly
