Eloise was discharged from Alder Hey yesterday evening.
After 12 days, Eloise has left hospital with no tumour and increasingly, no evidence of any long term neurological damage (hopefully) – thank you Liverpool and the wonderful staff at Alder Hey hospital. Mission accomplished for this part of the journey. We can’t thank you enough.
We are taking today slowly in our Air BnB in Liverpool to allow Eloise time to rest before the long car journey back home. Eloise is still quite weak (she can’t hold her weight/walk) and will need time to regain some of her previous mobility and strength but is making great progress, ably encouraged by playing with Anna. We will drive back to Guildford tomorrow, in time for Eloise to start the next stage of her treatment in the Royal Marsden and St Georges next week.
For those that pray:
- Please pray for protection against relapse (i.e. the cancer returning) in the days before Eloise starts chemotherapy. (ETMRs are a very aggresive form of cancer).
- Please pray for a smooth an uneventful journey back to Guildford.
- Please pray for an continued increase in Eloise’s strength (and weight) as she recovers. Specifically that she would regain her ability to walk so that she can simply enjoy being a mobile, unconnected 21-month old at home for a few days before re-admission for further treatment.
