Myles

At my 20 week scan, Myles was diagnosed with left-sided CDH with a 1.7cm hole in his diaphragm and both his intestines and spleen in his chest. I was induced on my due date at Liverpool Women’s and he was born the day after and immediately incubated and took to special care. At 3 days old we moved to Alder Hey, at 5 days old he had his repair operation where the diaphragm was sewn together with no need for a patch and then we slowly established feeding and reduced the help from the machines until we took him home at 19 days old.
