She had trouble gaining weight and at 4.5
months doctors found she had bilateral cataracts, these
were then removed in december 06', weighing only around
In spring 07' Meg had a cold which made her refuse to
eat and was losing weight so doctors intervened by giving
her a nasal gastric tube in April 07', which has helped to
a degree though has made her have bad reflux: she now
weighs over 15lb aged 19 months.
A skin biopsy was carried

Meg was a happy child, loved to be sociable and 'talk'
to people if they are within her vision range, fixed
at around a metre due to her contact lenses. She
liked to roll around on her play mat, though didn't
like to stay on her front for long.
Meg could hold and play with toys if they're small
and light enough for her to hold, she liked toys she
could bang,and also bright-colored and black & white
toys. One of her favorite toys was a soft
furry zebra called Zebadee, whom she took
everywhere, she liked to hit, eat, strangle and
'talk' to him.
