Hello and welcome to the September edition of RISA News. This edition contains updates on everything we have been doing since May! That includes an update from our June AGM, what our busy advocacy committee has in store for RISA over the next 12 months, and new articles. It also contains, as always, personal stories and recipes.
Anthony was my third child and after having a difficult time with my 2 daughters, I felt confident and relaxed about the thought of having another child.
Little did I know what was to come. It wasn’t long before Anthony was struggling with his feeds. He would drink and then gag and splutter, but because he was born with a floppy larynx (laryngomalacia), I just figured that was the problem. He also breathed extremely rapidly and this was also put down to the same problem (a bronchoscopy ultimately confirmed this diagnosis).
