Henry Spent 111 Days in RCH Before he Could go Home

Henry was born with TOF/OA (Tracheo Oesophageal Fistula/Oesophageal Atresia). His oesophagus didn’t connect to his stomach.

He spent 111 days in the RCH before he could come home to us. He had to wait to grow before they could connect the oesophagus and stomach together which happened when he was 12 weeks old. He was 100% tube fed for 18 months due to developing an oral aversion.

We wouldn’t have a vibrant happy almost four-year-old if it wasn’t for the RCH.
