Biography

Zack was born naturally at full term in hospital. He was 6.3 lbs. We went home the next day. At 5 days old we noticed his tummy was swollen. We took him to hospital and they sent him to the John Radcliffe in an Ambulance with lights and sirens. We had to follow in the car as they said he was so poorly (and doctors don't use those words lightly) that they would need lots of staff onboard. He was admitted to intensive care.

They told us he needed urgent surgery on his bowel. His intestine had become blocked and a piece of it needed to be removed. Two hours later he came out of surgery fitted with a stoma bag (like a colostomy bag).

Since then he's been through so much;
A bee sting reaction, lots of admissions for IV antibiotics, countless blood tests and injections, surgery to reattach his intestines, a milk allergy, MRSA, Pica, gallstones, hernia, nasal tube feeding, eating disorder.

This year Zack was diagnosed with Mycobacterium abscessus. This is a very damaging lung infection. Zack has just started a 2 year treatment for this bug. The medications that he is now on are highly likely to cause hearing loss and possible kidney problems. He spent a month in the John Radcliffe in May/June to begin the medicines under close supervision. He also had a port-a-cath (button) fitted. This is a line under the skin which goes into the large artery next to the heart. The end of the line can be accessed by needle to administer medicines.

I think a quilt would be great for Zack to have in hospital as comfort.
