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

We’re home.

on June 24, 2013

Anna was discharged around 4 PM this afternoon. Liver function was almost back to normal, blood counts were good, her tummy had reduced in size and everything seemed fine.

Her skin looks much, much better.

The doctors wanted her to stay in for most of the day just to check that everything was okay, so late afternoon we were given the ok, packed up with our medicines and sent home.

Anna ate a good tea and is now sound asleep, cuddling piggy.

She is to stay off her daily oral chemotherapy for the immediate future, but will continue to have Septrin on a Monday/Tuesday, domperidone twice daily, cholecalciferol (vitamin d) daily and posiconizile (Anti-fungal – four times a day). We also need to return to clinic on Wednesday morning to check her bloods and review her medicines.

I sleep so much better having my two children home with me.
