Daisy was falling a lot at nursery
Our perfect little girl was born on May Day in 2008. We called her Daisy and delighted in her progress. As she got older, she was falling a lot at nursery – we weren’t worried, at two years old, most toddlers are unsteady.
Then the sickness started. At 3-4am every night, she would vomit. I couldn’t understand why, and kept going to the GP. We were utterly exhausted, we both work full time, have long commutes and we had a child who wouldn’t sleep – ever.
After a week, we went to A&E. The paediatrician gave Daisy a CT scan and found a large tumour in the cerebellum, the base of her brain. We were transferred to Birmingham Childrens Hospital, and she underwent a major operation to remove the tumour a few days later.
