Isabella was born 2 weeks over due, which got complicated due to her position she was back to back and got stuck.
They tried forceps but failed so resulted in an emergency c-section, she was resuitated, sedated, intubated and cooled for 72hours.
It took 2 week for her breathe on her own. They told us she would have a servers brain injury. She stayed in hospital for the next 2 months having test and figuring out medication to help her.
Isabella struggled with reflux, she has no swallow or gag reflex so we had to give her a feeding tube. She also needed sedatives to help her sleep and after we took her home she was diagnosed with west syndrome - a form of epilepsy.
Isabella really struggled with the outside would and found life difficult, the first 3 years she cried 24/7. She slowly stared to enjoy singing and got use to different people being around. At 4 she started school which was a breakthrough in her development - she loved it and got used to the routine and staff .
She has recently started to need more help breathing and requires oxygen at night. She had surgery to feed into her bowl and had her tummy on free drainage due to reflux.
Isabella still struggles with her emotions but has enjoyed a few days out recently.
