Jack was born a healthy 6lb 8 and a quarter. He was meeting all his milestones up to the age of 2. We took Jack for his 2 year check up which he passed. A couple of weeks later Jack started to go back to a baby stage, wanting a bottle again and not eating proper food. Jack couldn't chew properly, he was choking on lumps and everything had to be mashed. We knew something wasn't right so we took him to the GP and got a referral to CDC. At the age of 3 we started seeing different people for a year.
In 2014 Jack had genetic testing done as he had abnormal facial features - his nose bridge was flat and wide and his ears were low set. The test results came back as chromosome duplication 15q11.2. Jack has had many struggles in the last 5 years with eating, sleeping and hygiene. Jack has a few struggles with school life but always has a few friends that will play with him and understand him.
In 2019 Jack went to see a physio and has now been diagnosed with hypomobility. He also has sensory issues as he struggles with loud noise and textures of food and drink. Jack is now 9 and is loving life in his own little way being on his own in his room playing.
