HERES FAITHS STORY..
Faith was born on the 4th of may 2016.
2 weeks and 3 days early.
On day 5 faith was admitted to Victoria hospital special care baby unit for phototherapy for jaundice.
On day 13 there baby girl was rushed to Edinburgh sick kids who then transferred them to birmingham childrens hospital.
She had prolonged jaundice.
She had blood tests done which revealed faith had a rare liver disease called billiary atresia something we had never heard of before.
On the 4th of June 2016 faith had a 6 hour operation called a kasai procedure which they removed her galbladder and created a direct passage from her liver to her bowels to allow the bile build up to clear.
Faith was put on 6 different medicines.
Faith has been in hospital every second week since for 5 to 10 days. This week we have found out faiths operation has been unsuccessful and she now requires a liver transplant.
Faith will go live on the transplant list at the start of February.
We have no time scale as to when she will receive this or as to how sick she will become whilst waiting.
Faith is 24hours ng tube fed. She needs 24hours care. We have to travel to birmingham for clinic appointments, transplant assessment and operations.
Faiths dad has to time off his work could be days or weeks which are most of the time unpaid due to having to go urgently. I cannot return to work due to faiths condition.
there is no timescale to how long her new liver will last, she may also need transplants in the future this disease is never cured.
