Bridget, I am so sorry to read that ZZ is so poorly. I pray she gains strength and can fight this illness. I cant imagine what all the family are going through.
Sending positive thoughts and love.

Thinking of ZZ and all her family at this very worrying time.May you have better news tomorrow. xx


SpanishEyes Report 3 Jan 2012 18:15

Just had a call from my sister and ZZ is still in hospital and so far she is likely to remain there for at least another few days.

Sadly we have also had a death in tne family today but that will be on my Daily Diary.

Many thanks for all your prayers, positive thoughts and genuine interest.

Good morning to you all and I hope that you are all well.

My sister called me just about 15 minutes ago to say that sadly ZZ is deteriorating and is being transferred to another hospital in Bristol. The Senior Consultant was with the parents early this morning explaining that ZZ is critically I'll and this next move is essential. They are going to take out her stent and then decide what to do next. He also explained that ZZ is only the third child he has treated for the particular infection which is very rare, ( so sorry I cannot recall exactly the name of the infection) and whilst there is always hope & miracles do happen they should also remember that ZZ has already exceeded everyones expectation.

I have to go as the phone is ringing



SpanishEyes Report 5 Jan 2012 09:03

The phone call was from my sister to say that ZZ and her parents are on their way to Bristol Childrens Hospital. I have looked this up on Google and it certainly looks very well thought of and innovative.

I do hope that someone reads this today, I know that everyone is very busy, but your kind thoughts etc are so uplifting. However I know we are all very busy, and people have their worries and concerns.

I am going to sit on the verandah for a short while, contemplate for a short time and think positive thoughts for us all

Bridget, I am thinking of little ZZzz today and of her parents and of you. Bless her she is in a very good hospital which has wrought miracles in the past (It is the local children's specialist hospital for this area). I wish her well and am hoping for a miracle. What a fighter she has been.

Your little neice is in my thoughts and prayers - also her mom and dad and all the family.
Love Mary xx


SpanishEyes Report 5 Jan 2012 11:03

Ann and Mary,
Thank you for your kind thoughts, they are much appreciated.
I did look up Bristol Hospital and it has had some fantastic results. However the consultant has made it very clear that the outcome may not be what we are hoping for.

I have been keeping myself busy by cleaning everything in sight, and OH has cleaned all the hard areas of the garden and now is sitting in the sun trying to read a book. We have to learn to expect the worst and be thrilled if the outcome is what we pray for.

I have not yet told the family of your kind thoughts, decided to do that latter, they do know that I have a thread with a synopisi of what every has been saying, but feel that right now is not appropriate and I trust that everyone will understand.



AnninGlos Report 5 Jan 2012 17:13

Of course we understand Bridget, it is a private family time.


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 5 Jan 2012 17:25

Oh Bridget, I am so sorry to read this latest news, and hope a miracle can happen at Bristol Hospital to keep little ZZ with her family. She has been such a little fighter and it's been such a difficult time for you all to cope with.

My thoughts will be with you all but especially with that little girl who has touched so many lives in such a short time.



SpanishEyes Report 6 Jan 2012 09:10

Liz, your last sentence brought tears to my eyes, and I am the one in the family who does not Cry. Thank you for your messages.
To everyone else thank you from the bottom of my heart, you are my tower of strength.

My thoughts overnight have been of Guardian Angels.

May little ZZ's keep her safe.
