Slight Change of Plan

Due to Mia having had a cough all week it was decided this afternoon that her chemotherapy and bone marrow aspirate due to be done tomorrow under anaesthetic will be postponed until Tuesday next week.  Mia was quite happy to spend an hour on the children’s ward playing Donutters !!!


             Thanks to good planning from Mia’s communtity nurses,  she was seen by the Doctor at St Mary’s and a plan to postpone was made before we made the trip over the water.   Although Mia is well in herself and does not have a chest infection her cough is quite “chesty” and the anaesthetic could potentially make it worse.  It has been explained to us that through out treatment there will occasionally be times that chemotherapy is delayed due to illness or low blood levels and that a postponement of a few days will not affect the efficiency of the treatment.  Mia will continue on her oral chemotherapy over the weekend and we will be Southampton bound on Monday afternoon for our overnight stay at CLIC Haven and treatment on Tuesday.

    Hi all,
    I have been keeping an eye on Mia’s website since I bumped into you on Tuesday Michelle…I think that it is amazing that you squeeze some of your energy reserves into updating us all with news and pics.
    I asked Harry if he and Mia have played at Nursery…I was given a story that goes something like this..
    “Yes Mama.. Me and Mia played with the rabbits in my pocket (?). I gave Mia 2 of them and we put sticky tapes on their bums”!!! lots of love xxx
