Child Interests

George loves loves loves tractors particularly combine harvesters. There isn’t a tractor he can’t name. At home he loves playing with his vehicles (cars, trains and diggers) and farm animals. When visiting the farm he lights up when he sees the chickens and it’s often a lot of work to drag him away from them.

His favourite colour is blue although he likes green and red too particularly when it comes to tractors.
George also loves nature and attends a lot of forest based toddler groups. He loves trees and flowers and exploring the insects hiding under logs. He can often be found searching for the mummy and daddy bugs to look after the babies.


Biography

Following George’s birth he was unexpectedly taken to ICU due to breathing difficulties. After weeks of interventions and some improvements he was sent home without a diagnosis. At a three month follow up meeting George was diagnosed with severe pulmonary valve stenosis.

Due to repeated infections he was unable to have surgery until he was 6 months old. During this heart surgery he was found to also have supra valve stenosis. This initiated concerns around the possibility of George having Noonan Syndrome and at the age of 13 months old this was confirmed by his geneticist.

George has had a further 2 heart surgeries, the last of which was not a success. His next open heart surgery is expected within the year. In addition to this George has had three surgeries on his testicles due to them remaining in his abdomen.

George has oral aversion and is mainly getting his nutritional needs met via prescribed Infatini milk. George continues to work very hard trying new textures/foods despite this resulting in daily vomiting episodes.
George has unexplained leg and foot pain for which he wears insoles and receives physiotherapy. He has frequent falls due to low muscle tone which is a common issues associated with Noonans Syndrome.

Despite all of George's issues and a total fear of hospitals he is a happy, adventurous little boy who is full of life. He sees beauty in the world that many take for granted and he makes everyone laugh everyday with his wicked sense of humour. Everyone he meets is drawn in by him especially his two big sisters whom he has wrapped around his little fingers.
