Isaac Davies

During pregnancy with our first child, we found out our son had a serious heart condition – Tetralogy of Fallot. We were told he might have 22q11 but decided not to have him tested until after he was born. Isaac arrived pink and screaming after a quick and easy labour. The baby doctors checked him over and we had blood from his umbilical cord sent for testing. He was (and still is!) perfect to us, but the test came back positive after 2 weeks. We had prepared ourselves for this and were ready for the challenges and rewards we knew he was going to bring us. Isaac had open heart surgery at 6 months old and recovered amazingly. He is now a happy 14-month-old who is developmentally very close to his peers. He loves waving and clapping and just started cruising round anything he can stand against. He has poor immunity which has led to a few hospital stays with nasty infections but has always bounced back. We love him to bits and couldn’t imagine life without him!
