Jaxson is yet to get a diagnosis. born at 35 weeks Jaxson stopped breathing in recovery and once resuscitated was taken to ICU. in hospital 2 weeks jaxson had jaundice and required photo therapy. Jaxson began to loose weight and fell from his birth weight at 5lb 7oz to just 5lb. At 1 month Jaxson was taken to four different health professionals who said, he will grow out of it, he has a virus and it's baby asthma. Jaxson was chocking on ever meal his parents gave him. He would be histerical every bottle time because he was chocking and struggling to breath. At 3 months Jaxson went blue and wasrushed to hospital. He was floppy in posture and struggling to breath. rushed to alder hey and Jaxson had and operation on his throat to take away excess skin that was sucking into his air ways when he was trying to breath. This operation failed and he had to have it repeated. This time the surgeon had to take so much skin from his troat that now everything Jaxson eats goes into his lungs. Jaxson was fitted with a peg feed in August at which time he caught two viruses in hospital and required oxygen to breath. Jaxson is undergoing genetic tests and neurological tests to try find a diagnosis. He does not support himself and is just floppy. He has a low immune system and is constantly in hospital as he can't fight infection. (We are in hospital now). Jaxson has spent more of his time in hospital or in the present early of hospital workers. attending 4 different hospitals and 8 different nurses that visit Him at home. The family are having to move house due to our current house being inadequate for Jaxsons needs. Ophthalmologist are unsure if Jaxson can see. He has glasses to try strengthen his eyes . His mum is having to leave work to care for jaxson and in turn is going to loose her company car leaving them with no transport to get jaxson to all of his appointments. Jaxson is a happy baby boy but had such a tough start. Such a trooper
