Normal Week!

Despite her cough and cold which has kept Mia awake a bit at night, It has been such a ‘normal’ week!  She has not had a temperature and has obviously not felt too unwell and has carried on regardless.  In fact she went to nursery on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and one of her teachers reported that she has had her best days yet, her confidence is back, she is more mobile and gets stuck in with all activities.  Mia absolutely loves her nursery and they make her so welcome that I feel confident sending her whenever she is well enough to go, even if it is only for a few hours.  I think it has been really important that she has got back into going to nursery because it helps to keep things normal for all of us.  Mia’s blood tests on Wednesday indicated that she is almost neutropaenic again (this makes her more prone to bacterial infections) so it was great that she has had such a good week because we will be being a little more cautious about where we go whilst her blood levels are low.

    Dear Mia,

    I hope you won’t mind me using your website to write a quick message to your Mum!

    Michelle – I have just seen the article in the paper and this is how I found the website. What a great idea! I have so often thought of you all and wondered how you are. Nicholas doesn’t like to ask Harvey as he ‘doesn’t want to upset him’. Now I will be able to check in to see how things are with you all. I only wish I had known about the fund-raising event. I’m not sure how it was organised (I never saw anything in the Nettlestone Primary Newsletter about it). Perhaps it’s because Nicholas takes the school taxi rather than me taking him to school that I wasn’t aware of it. Hopefully if anything else like this is organised I can find out about it on this site. Please count me in should anything else be organised – it is such a worthy cause and I would like to help if I can. I’m sure there’s a wet-suit somewhere up in the loft!

    I am so glad to see that you are all managing to keep up as ‘normal’ a life as possible, and it’s lovely to see so many smiley pictures of both Mia and Harvey. As I said in my note (which I hope you received?), any help I can give, please don’t hesitate to ask.

    Keep smiling, and if I don’t speak to you beforehand, I hope you have a lovely Christmas!

    Hello, Wow must be tough with lots of traveling, We have the same consultant Jan she’s lovely. The Southampton team are fab.
    Mia your a very brave little girl, I have been reading through your Mums diary pages and can almost retrace your footsteps, things can be very tough but after the delayed intensive treatment, things are easier so hang in there, and know that things will get better sweety.
