Olivia was born at 26 weeks premature weighing just 2lb. She was ventilated for a long time and needed a lot of extra support during her first few months. Olivia then had a brain scan at the age of 3 months due to her head getting bigger and having a sack of fluid at the back of her head. This was when she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. One of her ventricles in her brain had ruptured which caused the fluid to gather at the back of her head. Before having brain surgery we were told that she had brain damage on one side of her brain.
Olivia was then fitted with a VP shunt, she will have this for life.
Since then she has been in and out of hospital at least 15 times a year for longer than a week each time due to different reasons such as chest infections and pneumonia.
We have recently been told that Olivia has a very low immune system due to her health conditions and if she gets what we would call a cold to her it would be a more severe illness. Several times she’s been in high-dependency due to illness.
She’s just recently been granted a ehcp in school due to her hydrocephalus affecting her schooling. She has very poor memory which is affecting her learning in all aspects of school life and is currently 18 months behind her age group.

Olivia is a very happy, stubborn, sassy little girl, who is sooo outgoing! To look at her on a normal day you wouldn’t think she even has all of this.
