Teri-Kayte McConnell & Andrew Norris, Hartlpool
My son Oliver was born at 31 weeks at north tees hospital on the 5/2/2015 he weighed just 2lb 12oz. He spent 7 weeks there recovering and slowly getting stronger. He was ventilated for 6 days but soon was able to move up onto the CPAP machine. He had ongoing problems with his stomach that continued when we came home. He was also sent home on oxygen which continued for another 3 months. Oliver is now 17 months old and is thriving and can not wait to become a big brother in 8 weeks time.
