Home for Christmas
Louisa was finally able to come home in time for Christmas. It was such a special time for the whole family. We felt nervous having Louisa at home as we actually missed the security of the hospital, but we were very well cared for by a team of community nurses and still made frequent trips to hospital for check-ups.
As time went on Louisa started to enjoy a more normal life, joining play groups and music clubs. As parents, we have had to learn to let go and not worry that the leukaemia is returning every time Louisa has a nosebleed or feels unwell.
Louisa is one of the lucky ones, she made it through and we are just so very thankful for our lively and energetic little girl. We know that other families are not so lucky and if you can help Children with Cancer UK to try and beat this disease once and for all, we would all be so very grateful.
