Here's Daisy's story featured as part of the Text Santa appeal show which went out in the UK on Friday evening. So proud of my little girl!
Sometimes even I am taken aback by the many twists and turns of our lives. For all of November Daisy was in Great Ormond Street where she had a major five hour surgery, central line infection and sepsis, blood transfusions, fluid resuscitation's and various ongoing bladder infections. Once she was stable and the hospital were not doing any more than we would do at home (which as you know is quite a lot really!), we transferred for a lovely transitional stay to our hospice, this time the one in Hampton, Shooting Star House.
Happy to be in the ambulance transferring to Shooting Star House
Anyone who knows Daisy well will know that one of the most important things in her life is Peppa Pig, the cartoon character - in Daisy's world she is Peppa, Jules is George, I am mummy pig and Andy is Daddy Pig. It is an absolute sign of affection if she calls you "Pig". Andy bears a lot of similarities to Peppa's daddy - he likes to hide away and read his paper, he's not very good at keeping fit, he loves chocolate cake and he often gets things wrong which mummy pig has to sort out!!! But most of all, Peppa loves him, just as Daisy loves her own Daddy Pig!
