List's And Newsletters For Deafblind People.
CMV list- Support for families involved with Cytomegalovirus,
The purpose of the CMV list is to create a common ground - for parents
and caregivers of children with congenital CMV, their caretakers, therapists,
doctors and nurses who work with children, those with CMV, and those researching
ways to conquer CMV. CMV (Cytomegalovirus) is a herpes type virus that
affects young and old alike. CMV's complications range from unnoticed to
devastating. This list is also a forum to learn from each other, share
our frustrations and rejoice in our triumphs. This list will be a place
to discuss any and all of the complications of CMV...To list a few: intracranial
calcification, Cerebral Palsy, seizure disorder, deaf, visually impaired,
profound delays and MR, microcephallic, mal-absorption difficulties, feeding
difficulties, CMV retinitis. There are many other handicaps associated
to CMV, all of which are open for discussion. Here we can discuss children's
accomplishments and defeats, knowing that the audience includes others
who know what we are going through. We can also get some idea of how others
address specific problems/concerns with feeding, learning, schools, medical
resources, techniques and equipment, as well as describing the problems
to friends and family or just coping.
