Child Interests

Matilda loves Scooby doo.
Her favourite colour is red.


Matilda was born at 37 weeks and seemed healthy at birth, apart from two of her toes on each foot being partially joined. A few weeks later and Matilda was failing to thrive. Her weight started dropping and she would cry a lot. She was breastfed and would not take top up formula. I was told to wean early around 4-5 months but she didn’t really take to that either.
A few months later the doctor found a heart murmur and she was referred to specialists.

Over the next few years Matilda had numerous tests but nobody seemed to know the main cause of all her problems. She was diagnosed with hyper-mobility in all joints which causes her pain daily. She is frequently sick, especially at bed time. She struggles at school, academically, socially and emotionally. She definitely has autistic traits, dyspraxia and is currently being screened for ADHD. She also has problems with eyes, teeth and skin rashes.

At 7 years old a genetic doctor diagnosed Noonan Syndrome after a blood test. This was a relief and a shock.
Despite all these things Matilda always has a smile on her face and will never shy away from anything. She lights up any room she is in and has the ability to be able cheer you up in seconds.
