Thank you

Joshs quilt arrived last week and we have been in awe of it ever since! The quilt is simply breath taking and boasts everything that Josh loves in life! It’s clear to see so much time and effort has been put into the production of his quilt!

To everyone who took time out of their lives to add their bit to his quilt we could never possibly thank you enough! We now understand why children who have been lucky enough to have been selected for a LoveQuilt love them so much!

Everything has been so well thought out! The detail in each little square, the card and even those little quirky music note stitchings which hold it all together!

So many people have already been stopping us where he got it from!

Biography

During his birth, Josh was starved of Oxygen. He then went on to have a bleed on his brain and a stroke. Josh was not expected to live that day..
but he kept on fighting. Fast forward 11 years and we are here today. He's had a tough 11 years but still has smiles and has the most infectious laugh there is.

The effects of his traumatic birth are now clear. Josh cannot sit up, stand, eat, walk or talk, he is also visually impaired and he is fully dependant for all of his care.
At 2 years old, Josh had a massive seizure which left him with a Tracheostomy placed, so that he could breathe. He is also 100% tube fed Via a PEG tube into his stomach with nothing given orally as his swallow is unsafe.
The last 3 years Josh has needed 3 hip surgeries as his muscles are so tight that they have pulled his hips out of the joints.

Epilepsy has been the latest struggle, for 2 years life has been chaotic with daily seizures dispite being on a mixed cocktail of drugs, these are the worst. Before this, his seizures were under reasonable control and now doctors believe the drugs are doing more damage than the seizures themselves and Josh is having routine blood tests and is currently under investigations for his liver.

However, even with all that has happened to him, you would think he has had the greatest of experiences in life, he may not be able to communicate properly but he can light up any room he goes into with his cheeky smile.
