Child Interests

giraffes, snowflakes.

Colours..loves pastel colours


My IVF baby boy was born at 34 weeks via emergency c-section due to illness of me. His bowel perforated at 8 hours old and he was blue lighted to Manchester St Mary's hospital. He had emergency surgery and had a stoma formed. He then had a further 4 surgeries on his bowel. His heart condition causes apnoea along with other issues so he requires 24 hour care.

He is constantly in hospital since birth, there's been many more hurdles along the way with other illnesses which I can't possibly write as there's too much. He's the most beautiful, brave little boy with the world on his shoulders. We have to do wash outs 4x daily, medications daily and measure his input and output. He has to be monitored 24/7 during the night too, we are terrified constantly as his health is always a battle.
