Little Hector came into the world in 2021. The child was born prematurely, at 23 weeks postpartum.
The doctors’ prognoses were not reassuring and the little one had very little chance of surviving more than a day.
As the baby was born premature, he had several fairly serious health problems.
His 41-year-old mother Marie Clare and his father Angus were in a state of despondency.
“When he was born, I kissed him tenderly and then he was taken to an incubator and my heart was so sad,” Marie told BBC Scotland.
Fortunately, the little one was able to survive and it was a true miracle. His parents admit that they had a difficult time in life.
After his birth, the baby spent almost five months in the hospital and until his first birthday, he stayed there for almost 260 days.
In his short life, the toddler underwent fifteen surgeries and was rushed to the hospital more than 20 times.
Now, Hector has just celebrated his first birthday. The little one fought for his life and he won.
It was not the easiest year for the baby and for his parents, but the complexity of the child’s condition decreased.
“We still have a way to go, but I am so happy and proud of my sweet little one,” the woman told BBC Scotland.
Hector’s parents are full of gratitude to the doctors and all the hospital staff for their care and good attitude.
