A young family has thanked a charity for its help in ensuring they had a happy Christmas.
Logan Gotts was born 12 weeks prematurely weighing just 1lb 15oz when he arrived on October 7, 2014.
He and his mum Jemma Jarvis were transferred to The Rosie Hospital, at Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge.
“My partner Luke and I were offered a room at Chestnut House, a Sick Children’s Trust home-from-home at the hospital.
“We were just minutes away from my poorly boy’s bedside and this made it so much easier for me to bond with Logan.
“Having somewhere quiet and comfortable to stay while we were going through such a difficult time really helped us. Logan’s a little fighter,” said his mum.
Logan was discharged after two more weeks and spent a further eight weeks in hospital before going home to Pentney.
But in January he became seriously ill again and was operated on at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London, for a heart problem.
His parents were so concerned that they had him baptised while he was on a ventilator, but he pulled through.
Logan now suffers Chronic Lung Disease and was using oxygen until October this year when, just five days before his first birthday, his parents were told he no longer needed it and he is tube-free.
“We couldn’t have done this first few weeks without the help of the Sick Children’s Trust,” said his mum.
