A bit about Ted…..and why we are supporting the Trevor Mann Baby Unit
Ted Macdonald (my Godson and son to proud parents Claire and Dean) is an amazing little boy with a truly inspirational story to tell….
Ted was born via an emergency caesarean, after his mum, Claire had a placental abruption, causing him to be starved of oxygen and arriving with a 0 on the Apgar scale (The Apgar score is a simple assessment of how a baby is doing at birth, which helps determine whether your newborn is ready to meet the world without additional medical assistance. An evaluation one minute after your baby is born. Rated on Activity (muscle tone), Pulse (heart rate), Grimace (reflex response), Appearance (colour) and Respiration (breathing) scored from 0-10). We were told things didn’t look good. Ted then spent 5 days on a cooling mat to keep his body temperature down in order to reduce his brain swelling and causing further brain damage. Before he was then closely cared for in intensive care.
The work all the staff put in to nurse sick babies back to health is awe-inspiring. Claire and Dean were overwhelmed with the care, and expertise the whole unit showed to help Ted fight his way back from a chance of him not surviving, or suffering long term brain damage to being the amazing little miracle that he is.
He endured an extremely difficult first few weeks of his life, and through the support of the exceptional staff, and the ground breaking equipment, at the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, he pulled through!
We have been rallying together ever since to bring the community together and raise much needed funds, so please get involved!!
Thanks everyone for your support
Gavin (Ted’s Godfather)
