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

No more medicine

We were at sick kids yesterday for Anna’s monthly four hour pomidranate infusion (bone strengthening treatment). Her bloods were checked and her white blood count was so good that the doctors decided she could stop taking the last two preventative medicines – Septrin (anti-viral) and Posaconazole (antifungal). So she is not on any medicines at all. I’m hoping we see a continued improvement in her general well being, as well as her skin settling down (possible side effect of posaconazole).

This also meant she could have her NG tube removed as it was only used to give her septrin. Having her NG tube out is a major step. She’s had one in for more than 2 years. Anna was most excited about now having a face painting butterfly done on both sides of her face now.
