On October 19th 2010, my son (the Jam) was born and my life changed irrevocably.
Jam has a congenital heart defect similar to HLHS, which means (amongst other things) that he has no ventricle pumping blood to his lungs. It’s not curable, but a series of operations known as the Fontan procedure will give him a working circulation, for now. However he has always exceeded expectation and is currently a happy, healthy little boy.
I did go back to work after Jam was born, but last Spring we decided that I should become a “full-time mum”. I officially finished work on August 31st 2012 and this is what happened next…
