Child Interests

Poppy loves cuddles, music and stories. I am sure if Poppy could tell us she would say she loves pale pink.


Poppy was born after a full term pregnancy and within 16 hours it became apparent there were issues. Poppy was very jittery and not feeding. She was admitted to the hospital neonatal unit and given a nasal gastric tube for feeding and oxygen. Poppy slowly started tolerating small volumes of feed orally but after an MRI scan was shown to have brain damage and was sent home advising to wait and see how she would develop but that regular physio was needed . She was still mainly fed by a tube through her nose.

After 3 months Poppy started suffering with infant spasms (up to 40 a day) and would no longer take any feed orally. Her parents were then advised she was life limited and she was unlikely to live past 2 years old.

Today Poppy is 4 years old, fed by a mini gastrostomy button in her stomach and she is non-verbal and unable to sit up or walk. She has lots of physio every day and suffers regularly with reflux and an airway obstruction causing noisy breathing. Despite all this Poppy loves life and enjoys her cuddles, loves her music (especially George Ezra and daddy on the guitar) and enjoys having stories read to her. She makes us proud every day.
