A year ago today

It is a year since Ellen was diagnosed with AML. What a year of ups and downs. Today Ellen ran all the way to school with her lunch box ready to have her first school lunch. She is settling in to school and really is enjoying it. It is remarkable to think how far she has come with all that she has had to cope with over the years. The first photo uploaded is a recent picture of Ellen. The second is a shocking picture of her when she was poorly, the third is of Ellen and George days before her bone marrow transplant and the fourth is the bag of George's bone marrow that has to date saved Ellen's life. These picture paints a thousand words!

Christmas, New Year and School

Ellen had a fantastic christmas. Like may others she was very upset when the Christmas tree was put away and the prospect of more presents was dashed.
This week has been a very big week as Ellen started school. She is only going part time initially but we hope that with time she will be able to cope with full days. She is very much enjoying being able to mix with other children and make new friends.
