looking for light

looking for light

On 1/1/10 one of our baby twin granddaughters became very ill. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia within 3 hours of arrival at the hospital.
Our family are in shock but we are coping with all we need to face as best we can. I think how fast she went from appearing as a healthy baby to one in severe danger is what we are finding the most difficult.
Emily has a very long battle to face, which hardly seems right for an innocent infant, but that is the lot she has been given.
I have had no inclination to post on here the past 6 days as I’m sure you will understand my reasons for abstaining.
The family is foremost on my mind so therefore postings will be only as time allows.
Yesterday 5/1/10 we celebrated the twins 1st birthday in Oncology Ward at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Brisbane & with the help of the amazing staff we were able to give our girls the most important thing we can give….love & support
Good luck with the rest of the month & please understand I will not be able to return comments at this time

Dear Laine, what a terrible message. The family must be devasted. I know my husband and I would be when something like that would happen to one of our grandchildren. But than again: there is still hope, isn't there?
I am not religious. If I were I would probably pray for Emmily.
But my thoughts are wish her and with you. Wish you all the strength in the world.

Oh, Laine! Your grandaughter is in my prayers. She must be so scared as well as all of you. I would take that away from her and go through it again if I could. No child should have to suffer from cancer and all that goes with it. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. Right now, prayers are going up for little Emily! My heart is breaking as I write this. Don't worry about us, take care of you and your family and know we are all here if you need us! Wishing you much love and a miracle for Emily!
