At my 28 week scan they discovered that the flow in the umbilical cord was absent (AEDF). For 18 days I went for checks and scans, until one day on the 2nd May 2020 the blood flow had reversed and they had to deliver him that day. He was born later that day weighing 2lb 8oz. A few days after that they discovered he had a cataract in his left eye which would require surgery at 6 weeks corrected. When he was 6 days old, he was rushed over to Birmingham for suspected NEC and had sepsis in his tummy. It wasn't an easy ride but he defied the odds and left hospital 7 weeks later. He had his operation and removal of his lens and now wears a contact lens and patching to help.
He's now 9 months old actual and although we are having issues with feeding, he's a very happy and content little boy. We are so proud of him and how he fought to survive.Melissa
