Child Interests

Noah loves animals and also loves the TV programmes Hey Duggee and Bing. He loves Cuddles too. His favourite colours are purple and blue but he doesn't mind.


Noah was born premature at 27 weeks due to both me and Noah being extremely poorly. At 2 weeks old he developed Necrotising Enterocolitis and had his first life saving operation where they removed the affected intestine and gave him a stoma bag. A week later there were more complications and he needed another life saving operation. He's been to theatre for different procedures and operations 19 times now and has had 9 life saving operations on his intestines.

He was having a lot of complications with his intestines and after intensive investigations and a stay at Great Ormond Street they diagnosed him with chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction. He is in pain everyday with this and I treat this with intravenous buscopan, paracetamol and morphine.

He cannot eat so gets all his nutrition through his central line, his nutrition is called TPN. He truly is amazing and so brave.

We spent the first 2 1/2 years of his life living away from home in the hospital and since discharge has had a lot more stays. This year he developed sepsis again which was caused by a large gallstone so he had to have his gallbladder removed. Noah can develop blockages in his intestines at any time (and has done on many occasions). This can become life threatening so quickly and has had to go to theatre for major operations so many times for this. He's spent his whole life in hospital or at home shielding.
