what is Mowat-Wilson Syndrome?patient profilesfamily supportnewssupport group informationfundraisingprofessional zonelinkscontact informationhomepage

Wyatt was born in March 1998. The first thing the Doctors noticed was the Hypospadius which didn't seem like an uncommon thing, but by the second day of life with no stool and his stomach distended they diagnosed Hirschprungs. After a couple of operations and many sleepless nights at the hospital , we thought all would be well. But of course this is not the end of the story as you all probably experienced. Wyatt was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at 1 1/2 yrs.

With all this the doctors said he has a medical syndrome, but it was not identifiable. He started with seizures at four years of age, and when he was 5, he got a baby sister! 

Wyatt was 6 years old when the doctors finally put together the pieces of the puzzle and gave us the Mowat-Wilson Syndrome name.

Wyatt is now 8 years old, still in diapers but having a heck of a good time!

He absolutely loves the water so we keep him in swimming lessons a good amount of the time.He loves his dog, Lexie, his sister, Vivienne, and all his cousins and grandparents and friends. We know this is a long road, but we know God has given us Wyatt for a reason. We plan to try to take each day and enjoy our kids.
