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

2 special certificates

Anna was awarded the ‘pupil of the month’ certificate at school last week.

An achievement for any pupil, but in Anna’s case also marks the fact that she has actually completed her first full month at school.

Her second special certificate was for today’s trip to theatre at sick kids. We were here for 8am to have bloods checked, assessment by doctor/anaesthetist and then under general anaesthetic by 10am. She had a lumbar puncture and chemotherapy injected into her spine and brain fluid.

This one is so special because it’s her last one. She has now officially had her last chemotherapy dose. She’s still on daily anti fungals and weekly antivirals.

We are spending all day at sick kids because after her theatre trip, she’s having her 4 hour pomidronate infusion (to strengthen her bones). She currently has no fractures and seems really well.

2 different but both very significant events. I might have a small celebration tonight!
Well done, Anna.
