Dear Fairy Friends
It feels like Christmas all over again â€“ even down to the snow which
Six months to the day after Aimeeâ€™s bone marrow transplant we are at home and at last beginning to feel that we are truly home. After some worrying weeks caused by Aimeeâ€™s falling blood counts, she seems to have turned another most welcome corner in her epic journey. While others may have circumnavigated the world in record time, our Aimee keeps on in her journey because in her own words â€“ â€œshe wants to win against her leukaemia more that her leukaemia wants to win against herâ€?
To celebrate this important milestone our fairy princess â€“ resplendent in fairy gown, crown, silver bracelet and sequined slippers dressed early â€“ spent the day building complex structures in the knex construction kit â€“ something of a contradiction in terms you might think. But no, just another example of the sheer focus and determination that has seen her through the last fourteen months.
The family celebrated with a family dinner more than touched with a hint of valentineâ€™s day which is just around the corner.
We are blessed that Aimee is part of our family, that she and her brother Leigh are such firm friends and supporters of each other â€¦. And we are blessed to have reached this milestone with the love and support of some many people close to us at home and close to us at heart despite being a world away
Happy Valentineâ€™s Day
Light and love
Rosie and Aimee xxoo
