Mum-of-22 Sue Radford shares heartbreaking news following hospital appointment, admitting ‘things didn’t go as we hoped'

SUE Radford is constantly kept busy with her 22 children, and the stress of waiting to hear back from her daughter's doctor's appointment didn't help matters.

Sue was awaiting the news regarding her daughter, 11-year-old Tillie's leg adjusting procedure.

Tillie had to have a frame fitted in 2019 to lengthen her leg after it stopped growing due to a procedure she had at 18 months old.

Hopeful on her YouTube channel, mum sue reassures her daughter "We are just waiting to hear what's going on with Tillie's leg. It is defiantly looking a lot better but I still think it is shorter."

After spending hours in the hospital with her husband and daughter, Sue gives an update saying "What a long day. It was not overly brilliant news."

Explaining she said: "Tillie went in to have her X-Ray done, I was asked what the difference was before and I said 3cm and she said that's what it is now, it is still a good bit out."


The consultant then told her that there was a big difference in the frontal bone, being 3cm different to the other leg.

Sue said the consultant said his daughter's leg "defiantly looks damaged" adding that one of the bones "looks like it has stopped growing.

Her husband Noel chimed in saying that the options they have now are to have another scan in six months and decide if Tillie wants the operation now or when she stops growing.

"It all depends if Tillie wants the operation, which she doesn't at the moment," said Noel.

Sue said that the options now included getting a shoe to help with getting Tillie's walking and instead of a frame on the outside of her leg, having a rod put on the inside.

"It will still take as long. Six months and she wouldn't be able to walk on it because you have to break her bones to get her to be able to grow" said the mum.

It all depends if Tillie wants the operation, which she doesn't at the moment,"

The mom said they will have to think about the situation as Tillie also has a problem with her knee that the doctor said was "deformed" and if that is not treated, the girl has a higher risk of arthritus.

The family were hopeful that this situation would be behind them long ago, as when Sue was pregnant in 2019 she spoke about Tillie's leg and said: "Before you know it Tillie will be back on her feet on time for her next little sister’s arrival.”

The super-mum lives with her husband Noel, 48, and their 21 kids.

The Radfords are parents to Chris, 30, Sophie, 25, Chloe, 23, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 16, James, 15, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, three, Phoebe, two, Archie 18 months, and Bonnie, one.
