Biography

Poppy had severe feeding difficulties from birth. A heart murmur was detected after she was born and she was diagnosed with congenital heart disease at just 1 week old. She spent most of her first year in hospital due to severe reflux, vomiting, failure to thrive and poor growth and has been fed via a feeding tube since she was 2 weeks old.
She has had two operations on her stomach and now is able to eat by mouth, but still needs medication for her reflux and uses her gastrostomy tube for medicines.
She has had 3 heart surgeries, including open heart surgery to repair multiple holes in her heart and patch a narrow artery. She was very poorly afterwards and nearly lost her life, having to undergo another emergency surgery to drain fluid that had built up around her heart. She also has lots of other medical problems and has had surgery on her eye recently too.
She suffers a lot of pain from symptomatic joint hypermobility syndrome and finds it difficult to keep up with other children her age. Despite everything that she has been through, and continues to go through every day, she is a very happy little girl. She has the brightest smile and most infectious laugh, she is very loved.
