with our children, those with CMV, and those researching ways to conquer CMV.
This list is also a forum to learn from each other, share our frustrations
and rejoice in our triumphs.

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.

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.
