Freddie was my little brother, he was born on the 2nd of April 2010. When he came out he didn’t breath so he went into the Special Care Baby Unit SCBU for short. Freddie was put on a Ventilator.
The hospital he was in had just had a Virus going around so me and my sister weren’t allowed to see him.
But on the 6th of April they said we were allowed to see him, when we saw him he had a lot of wires helping him to get better.
After 2 days of being on this Ventilator Freddie was able to breath and shortly afterwards my mummy was allowed to give him a cuddle and when she did he opened his eyes just a little bit.
He then went to another hospital for the day to have is brain waves measured.
After that we had lots of ups and downs but he was stating to get better. Then he was moved into a room of his own and we were allowed to see him. We brought him some presents all of which he liked.
I gave him a Comfort Blanket, Maddy gave him a a Lullaby Teddy, Amelie gave him a bear called Leonie and Josie gave him some baby grows.
A while later he opened his eyes and was having a good look around. When we came to see him a while later he was asleep but we all had a picture taken of us and here it is.
Unfortunately after we had left he got a chest infection. The doctors thought that they could make him better but Freddie was too young to fight it off. He died on the 13th of April Freddie died aged 11 days old. But he died happy and in no pain.
