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

What a difference a week makes

on March 13, 2012

What a difference in a week! Anna is laughing uncontrollably in these pictures, having amused both herself and me!




Anna has been gradually improving since coming in so desperately ill last Wednesday. Today and yesterday she has been generally cheerful and smiling. The doctors now think that she has had both a viral and bacterial infection. Although we knew this kind of crisis was always possible, it really is unusual and Anna has been very unlucky. We knew to watch for a rise in temperature but in this case that rise didn’t come until she was also really ill.

Today she made chocolate crispie cakes and was delighted with herself. Unfortunately, she also wanted to eat them all rather than sharing with others on the ward…


Our gratitude that she is still with us is beyond words. Thank you for all your posts, messages and support –  it helps us so much to know that otheres are thinking of, and praying for,  us.
