Three-year-old Dylan has endured numerous operations on his heart and experiences many other medical conditions. On top of this, his windpipe can collapse easily, shutting his airway causing him to seizure and stop breathing. “If we go anywhere we have to take oxygen and emergency supplies with us,” explained Seth, his dad.
“Once we felt brave and decided to visit a friend in Cornwall but on the stopover at my parents’ house he stopped breathing and we had to do CPR and call an ambulance. One minute he was fine and within five minutes he was almost dead. Five minutes is all it took. We are so thankful that it didn’t happen while we were in the car or in a traffic jam. Now we are very nervous about travelling more than an hour from home.
Your kind support makes it possible for Dylan to have two Julia's House care staff with him so that he can receive specialist care and support, while his parents can feel secure knowing he is in the best hands possible.
“We never know when there might be another seizure that will cause him to stop breathing again – or if he will survive it. We realise that this is our life.”
