My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. [/p][p]Our baby boy was due on the 8th June 2016. However at 26 weeks pregnant, I developed complications and doctors grew increasingly concerned about the welfare of myself and our baby. I was quickly transferred from The Royal Berkshire Hospital (Reading) to The John Radcliffe Hospital (Oxford). A couple of days later our son was born by emergency C-section, on the 8th March. [/p][p]He weighed 1lb 10oz (750g).[/p][p] [img]http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p578/ecozens/received_10154149077568081-1_zpswnvg9buv.jpg[/img] [img]http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p578/ecozens/Mobile%20Uploads/20160311_140831_zpsnszkhbnq.jpg[/img][/p][p]Our little boy, Haydn, became very sick at just a few days old. The doctors explained how poorly he was, and they were unsure whether he was strong enough to pull through. We had to try and stay positive but this was the hardest part of our journey. Without the specialised treatment and determination of our son, he certainly wouldn't be here today. Thankfully he slowly started to show signs of improvement and began to stabilize. After almost a month in the JR's NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) Haydn was stable enough to be transferred to our local hospital, The Royal Berks. Unfortunately, he became quite unwell again but the team on Buscot ward carried on the amazing care that he had received so far. He wasn't a baby that was going to make anyone's life easy! [/p][p][img]http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p578/ecozens/Mobile%20Uploads/8B281D60-3E53-4422-B7C5-26226C1F5FA3_zpsbmm6sebb.jpg[/img][/p][p] [/p][p][img]http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/p578/ecozens/Mobile%20Uploads/E56E9285-845D-4DC2-A53B-60DD9FF6E1DF_zps0wpmyd3k.jpg[/img][/p][p]During Haydn's three and a half months in hospital, he was ventilated for two and a half weeks, had Respiratory Distress syndrome, diagnosed with Chronic Lung Disease, overcame Sepsis, had multiple blood transfusions, had to deal with the consequences of a slow closing PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriosus) and the worry of a detected bleed on the brain. There were many other problems but each challenge our little boy faced was professionally handled by the wonderful staff who looked after him. [/p][p]My aim is to raise as much money as I can to support [b]SSNAP [/b](Support for the Sick Newborn and their Parents) and [b]BIBS [/b](Babies in Buscot Support). Both units do such incredible work to care for sick and premature newborn babies, and their families. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]About my charities [/b][/p][p][b]SSNAP [/b]care for the families of the most sick and premature newborns from across the Thames Valley, treated at the Neonatal Care Unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital. They fund £80,000 of essential medical equipment for the unit per year and have a world renowned Research Fellowship with the University of Oxford which will change how infant pain is treated, not just at the John Radcliffe but in health policy all over the world. They ensure that parents can be close to their babies by providing accommodation in the hospital grounds, help with the financial cost of visiting a baby at the John Radcliffe and provide emotional support to parents at what can be a highly charged emotional, and sometimes traumatic, time. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]BIBS [/b]raise funds to give sick and premature newborns at the Royal Berkshire Hospital the best possible start in life. The charity is run by parents that have had a baby spend time on Buscot Ward. That is why they care so deeply, and want to make the experience for all babies admitted to Buscot Ward and their families the best it can possibly be. This year BIBS needs the Reading Half Marathon runners to raise at least £40k towards the circa £80k target to purchase two brand new incubators for the neonatal ward at Reading's Royal Berkshire Hospital (RBH). Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
