About

IMG_2888
This is a blog to tell stories about being a mother to our son Sam, his disability, our family and our lives in London.
Sam is 5, loves stories, Michael Rosen and being cycled around as fast as possible . He enjoys jokes and is surrounded by a loving, extended family. He has a younger brother, Eli.
Sam has dystonic 4-limb cerebral palsy as a result of oxygen deprivation during his birth. This means he finds it hard to control the muscles of his body and needs support to sit and stand. He has difficulty talking though he makes noises to tell us how he is feeling. Sam mainly communicates by smiling and looking at objects, things, pictures or an eye-gaze computer.
Sam finds eating and drinking tricky so is fed and hydrated through a gastrostomy tube in his tummy.
