All About Me By: Crystal Davis Introduction Hello, my name is Rashad Davis. My friends and family often call me Deep. It is a name I gave myself a long time ago. Chronologically I am twenty years old, but functionally I am closer to two and a half. I hope this booklet will help you get to know me better so that we can become friends. I also have some very special needs that I need to share with you. If you have any questions while reading my book or after you have finished it, please see my mom. She does all of the talking for me! Special Needs Let’s start with my medical diagnoses. I have Down syndrome, autism, Hirshsprung’s Disease, esophageal dismotility, and an ASD heart defect with a 3/6 systolic murmur. Since my esophagus has no waves, I must only eat baby food to prevent choking. I can only have stage one or two because they have no small pieces. I can only eat a small amount for pleasure because I have a small bleed in my esophagus. For my nutritional needs I am fed through my G-J tube. My nutritional supplement is Ensure plus. My mom attaches the connector to the J-port in order for me to receive my Ensure into my intestines. Feeding me through my G-port causes me to throw up blood so we like to avoid doing this. I have a nifty little backpack that I wear on my back. Inside of my backpack are my feeding pump and the bag containing my Ensure. My mom likes to keep some wet ones for my mouth, a chap stick, tape, and a spare pull up in here also. She likes to be prepared.
