Gabrielle Blackman Son Illness

Gabrielle Blackman’s son Gus passed away in February 2006. Gus had Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). According to the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, “HLHS is a birth defect that affects normal blood flow through the heart. As the baby develops during pregnancy, the left side of the heart does not form correctly.”

He had successful operations, which would, in time, have given him the chance to have more operations. But sadly he contracted MRSA in Birmingham Children’s Hospital. He was taken to their Bristol home for Christmas, but he never shook off the infection. He died after emergency surgery. Gus’s funeral was delayed for many weeks due, apparently, to the chronic shortage of paediatric pathologists and the consequent delay in the post mortem.
