Child Interests

Henry loves being outside, space and robots, trains and any vehicles.
He seems to like blue, red and any bright colours.


Henry was born 3 months early. He is intubated as he had problems breathing by himself.
Henry had a seizure at 2 days old which caused a bleed on his brain resulting in hydrocephalus. He spent the next 2 months having fluid drained from his brain before a shunt was placed. This shunt lasted 2 days before it had to be removed due to him contracting meningitis. He had to wait another 2 months until the fluid in his brain was clear of infection before another shunt could be placed.
Henry spent the first 7 months of his life in hospital. During this time it was found that he had a hole in his heart, a perforated intestine, breathing/lung problems and eye and hearing issues.
He then spent his first birthday in hospital needing a tracheostomy. Since then he has been in and out of hospital with different issues. The latest problems diagnosed are epilepsy and thyrotoxicosis.
Even though Henry has been through so much and seems to spend more time in hospital than at home, he is a loving little boy who enjoys spending time outside, especially in the park on the swings. He has proved so many professionals wrong with how far he has come and truly seems to love life. He is an inspiration to everyone he meets (which is amazing since he's not even 3 years old yet).
