Poppy was born extremely prematurely, at just over 25 weeks gestation. She fought very hard to survive over her first few months, and finally came home to her family after over 5 months in hospital. Since then, she has continued to amaze with her progress, but remains profoundly physically disabled, with significant, and life-threatening issues.
She underwent surgery during the summer of 2011, to address her chronic airway obstruction, and she became very unwell as a result, and spent time in Intensive Care. We are very lucky that she is still with us today.
Poppy lightens up everybody's lives - is a pleasure to have around, and embraces life to the full.
