Biography

Oliver was born a beautiful healthy little boy in March of 2016. Younger brother to David, Kaylee and Zoe. But things went down hill quickly. Two days after birth we had to do a MET call as Oliver wasn’t breathing right. He was rushed down to the special care unit at our local hospital where the ran a whole range of tests which came back saying he had pneumonia and a small hole in his left lung. So he spent just over a week on a crazy amount of machines, some breathing for him and lots of antibiotics. But thankfully he recovered fantastically.
Around the age of 1 we realized Oliver wasn’t developing at the right speed. He couldn’t talk or sit on his own and he was only just learning to crawl. We knew something was off but we also knew every baby does things at their own pace. This we never knew how true when it comes to Ollie.
Flash forward to 2.5 years old and Oliver started showing signs of autism in which he couldn’t cope with big crowds, loud noises and he had so many sensory issues. Just to name a few. So after a few months of early intervention both myself and mark spoke to Oliver’s worker and we all decided to get Oliver assessed for autism. On the 21st of March 2019 he got officially diagnosed with level 3 autism which means he is severely autistic and will need a lot of extra help doing those little things we take for granted like going to the shops, playing with other kids even going to fun play centers.
We still felt something wasn’t right as his feet were turning in as he walked, he would fall all the time over nothing and his arms and legs we so stiff and he was weaker on his left side. So we asked his physio to do a full assessment on him and her findings showed cerebral palsy :(
We were lost, even though Oliver’s mri had come back clear we knew the cause of this one. Heart broken knowing if I had pushed harder about his breathing after birth things could of been different. I went to his pediatrician and she gave us his official diagnosis of level 2 cerebral palsy. But this changed nothing. Oliver is and always will be perfect. Now with this under our belt along with his asd and an ataxia ( a vertigo issue )
