Biography

George was born by emergency C section as he was showing signs of distress. Everything seemed to be OK but on trying to feed him he had blue episodes so was admitted to SCBU where they ran varying tests but couldn't find any problem. He was in there for 5 days and then was on the ward for a further 2 days and we were discharged home.

A week later we went for a check up and were told that he was fine and it was just one of those things. Over the next few weeks he intermittently was very sleepy, cold and wouldn't feed. At 6 weeks old he had had a period of 24 hrs where he was hardly awake and had had very little feed.

He was admitted to hospital and there our story begins, he was very cold - temp of 32 and his body was shutting down and we were told that he was a very poorly boy and it was touch and go. But thanks to the local hospital he lives to tell the tale. He had tests and it was found that his pituarity gland wasn't working - this controls all the hormones in the body and therefore all hormones in George are replaced by way of medication. He takes 21 lots of medication a day.

The main problem of this diagnosis is that he drops the sodium levels in his body which can make him very very poorly and causes seizures. In Jan 1999 he had a MRI scan which showed the frontal lobes of his brain weren't formed correctly - thus the cerebral palsy that goes with it. He has very thin bones because he has been on steroids since 6 weeks old and has a scolosis of the spine too.

Over the years he has spent a considerable amount of time in hospital his very first Christmas being one he has been ventilated on 3 occasions and it has been touch and go numerous times over the years. This last year has been particularly bad as he suffered a fractured femur on the 9th December and was in hospital until the 6th March on complete bed rest as they were unable to pin, plate, plaster or traction the break.
