Emily’s miraculous road to recovery

AFTER a seizure left three-year-old Emily Corbally Langley on a life-support machine, doctors told her mother that she would never walk, talk, or use her arms again.

For six months experts in Jersey and the UK tried to figure out what had caused the seizure which left Emily unable to move but by November 2003, Suzanne Corbally Langley said, the doctors had given up.

Her mother would never have imagined that three years later she would be speaking so proudly of her little girl’s miraculous road towards recovery – at last, Suzanne says, she can smile again.

‘She’s so pretty.

To see her change and get better has been just brilliant.

She’s laughing more and more and moving around.

It’s just amazing.

I’m gobsmacked about the whole thing,’ she said.

‘Every week she gets something back.

The life has just come back into her body.

It’s just amazing.

The doctors here say they have never seen a recovery like this before.

‘Everyone had given up on her.

At one stage it was like they didn’t even care.

She was really sick, it was terrible.’ But Suzanne and her family refused to give up.

They found information on the internet about an alternative treatment called the Scotson Technique.

Instead of controlling the condition with drugs, this technique slowly teaches the brain to use the areas of the body it has cut off.

Three years ago Emily was in a full body brace but now she can move her arms and legs on her own – the transformation, her mother says, is incredible.
