When she was eventually freed she had to be resuscitated and was starved of oxygen for eight minutes.”Remi has already helped to raise awarenessThe lack of oxygen means Remi has a condition called hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) grade three /severe.Tube feeding, Gemma explains, saves her life.Yet Gemma has had to develop a thick skin when doing it public, and was recently moved to write an emotive post on Remi Dairy after an incident in her local shopping centre.”THIS IS CALLED TUBE FEEDING” Taking to the page she has set up to raise awareness about Remi condition, Gemma writes:”I see your funny looks, polite smiles even your looks of disgust, I can assure you I am not hurting her and I not feeling sorry for myself that I feeding her.”There are lots of comments from parents with their experiences where people have called their children and asked them if they should feed their child in a more private place,” Gemma explains.”My main point I want to make about tube feeding is that it not the classic argument of bottle vs breast there are several ways a child can be fed and at the end of the day fed is best.”Remi with her siblings, twins Oakley and LexiePassionate about educating people on the topic, Gemma continues, “I had people assume she premature. I even had one assume she had childhood cancer.”There are over 100 reasons why a child would be tube fed so I just think if people want to know don assume ask.”We don know what she will or won be able to do, it completely unknown at this stage but I try to spin that as exciting as I have a worst case scenario in my head so anything extra in a bonus!..

It made no sense to me, not for Swansea City financially because there was nothing in it for us.”As much as others felt the deal could have been done and we could have got something out of it, to me Dan going up to Leeds at the time, risk injury, us rely on a summer transfer, was wrong. I wasn even sure Leeds would pay the loan fee until the summer.”He added: “So Swansea City got a much bigger transfer fee, Dan got a better move.
