Child Interests

Oscar loves bright colours such as blue and red.
He adores motor bikes, spiders and helicopters.


I gave birth to Oscar in April 2015 and he has been in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children since birth. He is terminally ill and has an undiagnosed respiratory muscular problem. His lungs, liver and diaphragm don't work and 20 percent of his right lung has been removed. He is on a portable ventilator and has a tracheostomy long term. He has a gastrostomy in his stomach as he can't eat anything orally as it would go straight into his lungs. He also has scoliosis so can't sit up straight but he can sit up on his own, just doesnt have a very good balance. He can't talk but is very good at Makaton or makes mumbling noises for certain things. He can't walk at all but can get about in other ways with his amazing equipment. We attend Robin House every 6 weeks and also receive home care to get us out of hospital as much as possible. Oscar's a very happy and lovable boy.
