WELCOME TO A HEALTHY SUMMER
A blog to raise awareness of infant heart conditions, provide information on infant health and raise funds for The Great Ormond Street Hospital
Summer was born in the summer of 2018 on the hottest day of the year, the longest summer on record. She was brought into the world in a rush. The doctors thought she stopped growing at 36 weeks due to an infection. After an emergency c-section Summer opened her eyes to meet her mummy, daddy and sister Skylar. Summer weighed a tiny 5lbs and when assessed by the doctor they found a heart murmur. Still only a few days old, it was unknown how Summers heart was affected.
The next few months would prove stressful as baby Summer went under full investigation into the extent of her heart defect and explore the best way to get her fit and healthy for her life a head. This blog is dedicated to the wonderful staff and amazing medical facility which Summer is under the care at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
We aim to provide information, support to other mums and dads, and help raise donations for the hospital through our charity events.
