Photo of Morgan L


Morgan was born at 31 weeks. He presented healthy at birth, but at 4 weeks old the hospital staff noticed that his head felt squidgy which spiralled into lots of brain scans. The first ultrasound showed fluid on the brain and he needed a transfer to another hospital.

5 days after his first scan Morgan had a VP shunt fitted. He did amazingly well and was discharged just 3 days later. All of this was a complete whirlwind and meant we had lots of appointments with specialists.

At 3 years old Morgan developed epilepsy which, for me, was the hardest part as this completely changed Morgan. We were lucky and managed to find medication that worked well. Morgan is generally a pretty well child and we have escaped hospital quite a lot. In 2012 Morgan had pnuemonia and in 2017 he underwent hip surgery which made him very poorly and ended up with 13 weeks off school.

Morgan is now 15 and a cheeky chap with a love for life.
