Hi, my name is Leighton and I am 2. I live in Weston super Mare with my mummy and my 2 big brothers.
I have 2 congenital heart defects and a respite holiday with my mummy and brothers would be amazing!
I was born in St Michael’s hospital in Bristol. I spent my first 5 days in intensive care and the high dependency unit before the doctors requested an echocardiogram because they found a murmur. It was found that I have 2 congenital heart defects. I have a asd sinus venosus type and partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage. I will require open heart surgery next year in Bristol children’s hospital.
I also see a speech therapist and a play therapist due to developmental delays along with a dietician as I have an allergy to cow’s milk protein and a paediatrician.
So, I would love to be able to go on a respite holiday with my big brothers and my mummy to have a break from all of my appointments.
