Louis was born on the 14th February 1997,
two months premature, at the Royal Alexander Hospital, Brighton.
Not only was he born with a huge Gastroschisis, but he also
had to contend with all the problems that a premature birth
bring. Louis underwent numerous surgeries in the first two
weeks of his life. Unfortunately he just wasn't big enough
to keep his "gut" contained and after a couple of
weeks, Louis's abdomen burst open.
