Team Bella update: Pre-B ALL, Relapse, BMT #2, Day +9
So this happened today: our family was re-united for the 1st time after 10 weeks apart. The oncology team, on compassionate grounds allowed Olivia to come in to visit Bella.
Over the past week, on top of the hemorrhagic cystitis, Bella missed her sister terribly! Even taking a bath was a struggle & she refused because she said, “Having a bath reminded me of Olivia!” 😫 With a little help from Ma 7 Elaine, it happened.
The room was “electric” as Olivia entered. Bella was on the toilet! But she soon said, “Mum I’m done”.
Bella’s call out to her sister warmed the cockles of my heart. Olivia ran up & embraced her sister. It was hard to believe that these two monkeys (besties) were physically in the same room finally!
Family time=priceless= BEST MEDICINE.
Team Bella: We’ll take one day of togetherness
