anna's blog

Our beautiful, gorgeous little girl, Anna, has leukaemia. She was diagnosed on Monday 5 December 2011.


on January 17, 2012

We’re home!

Ann Marie and I brought Anna home this afternoon, together with her medicines.

Anna has to go back into RHSC tomorrow at 8.15am for her weekly lumbar puncture chemotherapy under a general anaesthetic, but that’s only for the day: should be back in time for tea. Anna will have to fast from 2am latest and no fluids from 6am.

At the time of writing this blog, Anna is sitting snuggly wrapped up on the couch watching “Shrek Forever After”!

    Like everyone else who commented here, it is just fantastic to see Anna sitting at home on her own couch and watching Shrek. Her strength and determination continue to amaze me. She has no idea the effect reading about her has on us! Much love to you all and really hope the return back in for the treatment on 18th went off as well as possible.
    Gillean, Tom and Sam
