I met someone today whose preemie baby was recently diagnosed with CP.
I told her about H and E, and the first thing she asked was if Eden could walk. I explained that Eden could walk in her pony walker, but would probably never walk independently. The poor mom burst into tears. She said that the doctors have told her that her son will probably never be able to walk. She repeatedly said "he's gonna walk." "Aren't you?" "You're gonna walk."
She also said "poor baby, poor poor baby" in reference to Eden. She's clearly never met Eden. Poor baby my ass.
