Thomas was born 103 days too soon alongside his twin sister Mia. Long story short, after a life and death battle we finally brought them both home nearly 6 months later.
Whilst in hospital, Thomas had severe brain bleeds and developed hydrocephalus. His bowels exploded which resulted in multiple operations and stomas and he is only alive because he became bionic with his shunt. He has Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy and Cortical visual Impairment alongside chronic lung disease and a few other minor complaints.
Despite these setbacks he is a happy, confident 7 year old who's body simply doesn't quite work properly. He is unlikely ever to walk nor use his left hand for any useful purpose. His eyes are independent and his eyesight poor. He will need help and support all his life, especially when we are no longer around to care for him.
