I'm sitting weeping (happy tears) because just the girls have gone to my Mum for a few days, a parcel has arrived. The quilt is truly truly beautiful, with Toby right bang in the middle! She will love it, and as soon as she's back on Sunday I'll get photos of her with it. A huge huge THANK YOU to stitchers and quilters xxxxx
Update: She loves it and frequently asks to look at the pictures and feel it. Thank you so so much xxx
Rania was born at 26 weeks, and ventilation was delayed. She has fought from birth every expectation and surpassed all prognoses. Rania started babbling when she was nearly 3 years old, soon after she started eating solids. She is extremely determined and keeps going way beyond what could be expected of her. Rania was not expected to be able to raise her head even, but is now learning with support to ride a donkey.
Her epilepsy first showed 2 years ago, which began a rollercoaster as we fight to find medications to control it. She has regular trips to hospital, almost weekly for some months now, with frequent stays on the high dependency unit. She continues to amaze the medical team caring for her (currently approx 15 professionals) with her determination and courage.
Despite all her difficulties Rania attends a mainstream school, who are similarly impressed with her character and attitude to life.
