To all fairy friends of Aimee
You are right to call this wonderful circle ‘A Special Fairy Ring’ – I hope it becomes evermore inclusive
It has certainly touched our lives in a ways that I would not have been able to imagine – Aimee holds her part of the silver thread that connects you all – for my part I feel an honoured guest.
Alongside Aimee’s own reiki I have had some truly remarkable healing experiences myself in recent months – we are blessed to have met a gifted reiki master who has opened the way for healing for all the family and has brought some awareness of reiki to parents on the children’s ward where Aimee is being cared for. He has also taught us some chi exercises to help us keep our own connection with the universal energy – I feel a huge benefit from them and regularly do them with Aimee.
Aimee’s progress post transplant has been quite outstanding – she has positively broken every expectation that the medical staff had of caring for children pre and post transplant – it seems to me that whatever “book” Aimee is following in her recovery – it is quite different from the one the rest of us are using
Yesterday – only four weeks after her transplant she was allowed home for the afternoon – something I had been led to believe might otherwise have taken up to four months to achieve – it was a joy having her close again – even although she left her socks, shoes, coat, hat etc in a trail along the floor and quite soon thereafter the flat was full of noisy game playing.
She still has a long way to go – and there will be further difficulties to overcome I am sure – but looking at Aimee yesterday I saw my little girl again as she was at Christmas before she had her relapse. Having a bone marrow transplant was the last thing I ever wanted for her.- We will never be free of the leukaemia for its consequences will stay with us throughout our lives and we will live our lives differently that they might otherwise have been.
The greatest gift from Aimee’s Leukaemia – if there is one to be found – is the gift of friendship – for all the simple acts that take a moment to create – they create a magic that lasts a life time.
Our family has been in many dark and lonely places over the last few months – we are not yet in the full rays of the sun but there is without doubt great warmth from the affection that we have received and more light than we might have once believed possible.
To all of you for your prayers, thoughts, paintings and gifts of hope and encouragement, for sharing your reiki experiences with Aimee myself and our family – I hope you can share these precious moments and joy that you have wished for us.
love and light
from Rosie and Aimee
