We had a lovely Easter however we did not get to go out as Emma was neutropenic (low white cell and neutrophil count) Basically this means that her immune system is not functioning normally and if there was any sickness around then she would have a high chance of catching it.
Tuesday night we went to a special evening thanks to Make a Wish foundation and the Hard Rock Cafe in Surfers. Hard Rock put on an awesome night for the Make a Wish families it was soo much fun.

Take 5 magazine phoned us yesterday and they want to do a story on Emma and her ever growing sticker collection. Apparently they saw the article in the Gold Coast Bulletin. Can I just say again that I am so gobsmacked that we, an ordinary old family from the Gold Coast are getting so much publicity. We have never done anything special we just have a sick little girl. We are incredibly blessed though as it could be a lot worse that it is. Emma is so strong and will get through this even stronger. She is going to be an amazing woman one day. One who I will proudly say "see her, she's my little girl"
Anyway I have to go and get some work done. Hope this finds you all happy and healthy.
