Chloe was always a healthy gorgeous child. Never got sick or anything was ever a problem. Just after her second birthday we noticed things weren’t right and after taking her to the doctors two days in a row and put on antibiotics for a UTI we decided to take Chloe to the hospital where she was diagnosed with Leukaemia.
Chloe was doing really well with her treatment and was over a year and a half through her standard chemo treatment when a blood test revealed she had relapsed just before Christmas in 2016. We were then faced with intensive chemo, radiation treatment and a bone marrow transplant in april 17 - 16 days after her 5th birthday.
Chloe is still receiving treatment for her condition as we are. It in the clear yet. She is more than one year post transplant and she is going well but still little things scare us and she can not be normal.
We started her at school this year as she is such a smart child and was so ready. But when there is a breakout of infections such as measles, mumps, rubella abs chicken pox we have to get her out. Unfortunately she has missed quite a few weeks at school already with other kids having chicken pox. As chicken pox can be life threatening to Chloe it’s not something we can risk. The poor darling gets so upset when she can’t go to school as she just absolutely loves going to school and having the interaction with children that she hasn’t really been allowed for the previous Theo and a half years.
