About Izzy

My name is Isabel and I am eight years old.  I live in Auckland, New Zealand.

My favourite colour is yellow.  My three favourite subjects at school are Maths, Reading and Science.  I like to do gymnastics, tennis and swimming.

I live with my Mum, my Dad, my little brother, our au pair and our dog Pumpkin.

I was born with chrondrodysplasia punctata, a condition that makes one of my legs shorter than the other.  This year, I am having a leg lengthening.  My doctor is Mr Walsh and he works at Starship Children’s Hospital.

This blog is a record of how my leg lengthening is going and I might also write about the other parts of my life.
