MOTHER’S Day arrived early for Williamstown’s Sally Fromm.Last week, Sally’s 19-month-old daughter Laila called out “Mumma” for thefirst time. What makes that word so special is that Laila was only given a 50-50chance of survival at birth and at one stage it was feared she may never talk.“It was something special, that’s for sure,” Sally said.“But Laila is just remarkable herself and is definitely Ryan (Sally’shusband) and my little miracle.”Life has dealt Sally some tough cards but she remains always smiling and says, “there are others a lot worse off.”Her mum Joan passed away about two years ago. Then when Laila wasbeing born she was diagnosed with evolving cerebral palsy after suffering hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy robbing her brain of adequate oxygen.She was flown to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide and her diagnosis worsened as she suffered multiple organ failure.“But we learned quickly that Laila is a fighter,” Sally said. “Her organs recovered but because of the lack of oxygen to her brain during birth, she was left with moderate to severe brain abnormality.“We were told she may never see, hear or talk but now, 19 months later, Lailais defying the team of specialists who look after her with her improvement.”Sally said her daughter was going through a critical stage now where mostbabies are learning to walk.“It is like her brain is not telling her muscles to relax so we have to do a lot ofphysio work getting her to try and stand so her hips and pelvis become strongerto eventually enable her to support her weight.“Laila is not always that happy about having to stand up and support herself but with her fighting spirit is adjusting.”For the Fromms there are up to five trips to Adelaide a week for specialist appointments and treatment.Andrew and Vanessa Seppelt, co-owners of Murray Street Vineyards atGreenock, friends of the Fromms, came up with a typical Barossa venture toassist with the costs for Laila’s treatment.They have created a signature 2013 Laila Marsanne Semillon.The wine is available from Murray Street Vineyards and TeAro Estate Wines inWilliamstown.Sales of the wine will fund Laila’s conductive education and specialised rehabilitation treatment.Mother’s Day, this Sunday, will be a very special one in the Fromm household forthe little miracle and her special “Mumma.”HAPPY FAMILY: Sally, Laila and Ryan Fromm.lynasautogroup南京夜网WH1883240+8563 2045Everything we do is driven by you
