After seven long heart breaking years of trying for Huey, our dreams came true after multiple failed IVF Treatments. We were going to be a mummy and daddy! We had a fighter right from the start, something that was simply made to be, not perfect for some but frankly just perfect for us. Huey decided to arrive 14 weeks early, I was bleeding very heavily at home and had to be rushed in to the delivery suit. Huey’s heart rate was dropping and I was actively bleeding, a doctor with glasses said we had to deliver now! I remember the words clearly, clear as daylight. I looked into his incubator, at my beautiful little boy, fighting for his life, being pumped with medications, more wires than baby! Not one person in that room ever thought he would make the next hour, each hour passed and he was clinging on to life. The feeling of utter helplessness, waiting for something to happen, good or bad. The doctors and nurses were trying there very upmost to help, guide, and comfort us through the truly most horrific time of our lives. Praying and trusting in total strangers to look after the most precious thing you posses, why us? why him? I would not wish this on my worse enemy! You get on the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, one step forward four steps back and all you can do is hold on for dear life. Huey fought sepsis several times, had blood transfusion after blood transfusion, and has had brain surgery twice, the list goes on and on! After a very long and bumpy stay in hospitals we were finally able to take him home, proving so many people wrong, keep reaching for them stars Huey, you deserve each and every one of them. Huey is showing lots of promise we have just turned two. He is very loved, very wanted young boy. We want to raise as much as we can towards this walker for him. We had a trial today and he even took tiny steps forward, this as you can imagine brought tears to my eyes. We are so very very proud of him. He’s our whole world. x
