The “BIT” between Christmas and New Year…

Mia has remained well since Christmas Day, in fact she is positively bouncing of the walls.  She is really bright and full of beans at the moment which makes me more anxious about what we have coming….

On Tuesday when I took her bloods the result was not great, her neutrophils were only 0.8, if they were to drop further than this she cannot commence on the intensification treatment.  However it is now New Years Day and I took her blood sample over to the ward today (no community nurses to pick them up… but they do deserve the day off) the results are in neutrophils back up to 1.0 so we are booked on the 7am ferry tomorrow.  I will update how he day goes and hopefully add more pictures tomorrow (Mia has been doing some brilliant fancy dressing which I just have to share).

Happy New Year to you all…. Lots of Love XXXXX

    Thankyou for sending us the link to Mia’s site. We were pleased to see that, like Catherine, Mia also had a good Christmas.

    It is good to read that Mia has a good enough count to start the next block of treatment. We are now two weeks into the intensive block and Cath is doing fine. Only today is she quite tired. The hospital told us that Doxorubicin doesn’t really hit the blood counts until a week after the first dose, and that was about right for us. We’ll be thinking and praying for you all as you start this block. You are not alone! Dawn, Mark and Catherine x

    Hello there,

    Just discovered your site through the Facebook group that was created for your little girl. We were diagnosed with A.L.L. beginning June 2007 around 2 weeks before Bianca turned 4.

    I will continue following your journey and keep you in my prayers and thoughts! Before you know it you will reach maintenance and that will most definitely have more “normal” days.

    Hi Mia,

    I heard from your Dad that you went boot-fairing and shopping with Harvey and had a great time at “Woolies” closing-down sale, I think we will miss that shop as it was pretty good for toys and things.

    Looking forward to seeing your dressing-up pics!

    Love to everybody (especially you!)
