05 Sep Laura’s Story
Freddie was born at 24 weeks gestation, and he even cried at birth.
He was thriving, but at 15 days old Freddie was diagnosed with Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC).
The consultant who operated on Freddie’s bowel said he’d had this for about a week before it had been picked up.
Freddie never came round fully from his operation as he’d contracted sepsis from his bowel leaking.
We didn’t know he had sepsis until his post-mortem.
Freddie passed away at 17 days old from sepsis on the 7th of October 2017.
We love him to infinity and beyond.
