Child Interests

Ella loves anything colourful, her room has lots of unicorns and fairies.


Ella-mae was born at 23 weeks. She spent four and a half months in neonatal units across 4 hospitals. Ella had bilateral brain bleeds which caused the PVL and led on to her cerebral palsy diagnosis. While she was in NICU she had lots of complications and had surgery to close a hole in her heart. She had further surgeries to remove a part of her intestine as it had twisted and laser eye surgery to correct retinopathy of prematurity. This has led to her losing some of her peripheral vision and she is extremely shortsighted. Ella-mae also battled several infections and had to have lines replaced continuiosly.

Ella spent a further 6 months in hospitals with 4 stays in intensive care battling pneumonia, adenovirus, sepsis and RSV. This has all left her lungs damaged.
Ella still has multiple hospital admissions and procedures.
