Princess had her lumbar puncture and it showed that she still had some of the bug,so has to stay in a few days more...and I suppose another lumbar puncture.

It's better to be sure and she's in the right place although everyone's a bit disappointed.

Daughter has just mentioned that white cells have come down from 1000 to 43... Not that I understand but some of you with medical knowledge may.

She still seems OK ...so it's a waiting game.

Poor little baby. She is in the right place and they are making sure she is clear of everything before allowing her home by the sounds of it. Very frustrating for the family but better to know she will be better when she gets home and with her being so young she wont remember any of the nasty things she has had done to her.xx

Bless her, she has gone through so much, but best to have thorough checks done, so she is fighting fit when she goes home. I do hope it won't be long, and she can be spoiled lots when she is back with the family again.

Nearly there Brenda, she'll be home as soon as she's well enough then you can all breathe again.

So pleased all the treatment has gone so well.

Not sure if she is home.Daughter called me this afternoon to say that she can go home if they bring her in each day to have her treatment .

I have been out tonight and not heard anything...so will find out in morning,but think if they let her out she must be a lot better.

Princess is out of hospital..but it was an option that they agreed to as they have to take her in each day for injection.
They had to go at 1.0am early hours and tonight at 11p.m tomorrow at 9.p.m.
I spoke to my granddaughter earlier and she is pleased to be home...though I wondered if it would have been better to stay till the treatment finished...didn't say anything and can understand them coming home to be with the other children.
She has gained weight and is smiling now and not in pain.
Thanks all for your support!

Good news Brenda. Great that Princess is smiling again.

Hope that the injections are soon all over and family can get back into a normal routine.

Lovely to hear Princess is home even tho she has to go back and forth for the injections. The fact that she has put on weight is good news and I am sure she will come on in leaps and bounds now.

All the best to the family and especially to her Mum on Mother's Day, (and you too of course)
