患有罕見心臟病的男孩在住院一年後回到家中

凱龍-巴里-愛德華茲在家中發生心臟驟停後被送入南安普敦兒童醫院時只有6個月大。

這個可憐的小傢伙被列入了心臟移植名單,他的母親被警告說,成功的機會非常低。

凱倫的情況意味着他無法增加體重,所以直接通過靜脈進食,繞過了他的消化系統,減輕了他的心臟壓力。

她說。"......凱隆被認為是英國第一批接受該療法的一歲以下兒童之一。

"當[他]第一次來到我們這裡時,他是一個非常可憐的小男孩,但他的決心和堅強的意志讓我們感到驚訝 - 他真的是我們的小奇蹟。"

40歲的母親香特爾從兒子入院那天起就沒有離開過他的身邊,她在病房和麥當勞之家睡覺,麥當勞之家為有孩子住院的家庭提供住宿。

"我已經12個月沒有回家了,我只見過我的其他孩子塔法里和阿亞娜幾次,但你必須要堅持下去。

"走到這裡並不容易,但我內心深處一直知道凱龍會好起來的。"

現在18個月大的凱龍將繼續需要照顧,並且隨着他的成長可能需要進行心臟移植,但他已經及時回到家中,慶祝他的大哥的17歲生日。


Cairon Barry-Edwards was six months old when he was admitted to Southampton Children's Hospital after having a cardiac arrest at home.

The poorly youngster had been put on the heart transplant list and his mother was warned the chances of a successful outcome were very low.

Cairon's condition meant he was unable to gain weight so was fed directly through the veins, bypassing his digestive system and taking pressure off his heart.

She said: "...Cairon is thought to be one of the first children under the age of one in the UK to receive it.

"When [he] first came to us he was a very poorly little boy but he has amazed us with his determination and strong will - he really is our little miracle. "

Mum Shantelle, 40, did not leave her son's side since the day he was admitted, sleeping both on the wards and at Ronald McDonald House., which provides accommodation to families with children in hospital.

"I haven't been home for 12 months and I've only seen my other children Tafari and Ayanna, a handful of times, but you just have to go with it.

"It wasn't an easy path to get here, but I always knew deep down that Cairon would be ok. "

Cairon, now 18 months old, will continue to need care and may require a heart transplant as he grows but has returned home in time to celebrate his big brother's 17th birthday.
