Biography

Aj was born full term and due to his brothers standing diagnosis had genetic testing done at birth. While waiting for those results to come back, Aj had multiple blood tests done while still in hospital to monitor his electrolyte levels and came home, 2 days old with his little heels all bruised from all the blood tests.
Over the next couple of weeks, he was difficult to settle and fed almost non stop, until with the help of our mid wife decided it was time to take it further. I took Aj to our local children's hospital, PMH and there he had a blood test done which showed sky high sodium levels, confirming his diagnosis of Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus, before we had the results of his genetic tests back. He spent 3 nights in hospital with a dextrose IV attached to his foot (he somehow managed to unhook it the first night) to bring his levels back to normal and started on medication to control it after 2 days.
Since discharge, with his early intervention, and frequent monitoring through the hospital, Aj has continued to thrive and flourish - meeting most milestones early, with developmental tests showing his developmental age as further than that of his actual age - he rolled at 6 weeks, crawled at 6 months and walked at 9 - now at 12 months he is sweet and cheeky and so loveable.
