Thank you

Hi It's Sienna H's mum here, Tanya.
I just wanted to let you know that the gorgeous quilt arrived this morning and it is absolutely beautiful. I cant believe the amount of detail that went into the quilt and how pretty it looked!!
So much love went into the quilt and Sienna will enjoy it thoroughly.

I wanted to share a few pictures as she was in bed and i brought the blanket in to show her. Sienna is non verbal but she was so happy and excited making lots of cheerful noises and the first thing she did was point to Upsy daisy and kiss her!!!
Thank you for making Sienna so happy and really making the quilt with everything she loves. Sienna was overjoyed and hugging the quilt . This will be so lovely for her to have in hospital when she undergoes her operation . It will remind her of everything she loves and bring so much comfort to her.

Thank you so much.

Lots of love Sienna and family xx

Biography

Sienna was born at full term weighing 5lbs 11ounces. As the months went past we noticed Sienna's left leg going inwards slightly. At Sienna's 9 month check she wasn't able to sit up, she kept falling to the side. We always had pillows around her. The health visitor said they will check Sienna at 12 months to see if everything is okay with her development.

At 12 months Sienna was still unable to sit up or bear weight on her feet. The health visitor came to our home and said she is referring Sienna to a paediatrician. From then on Sienna was in and out of hospital for tests, scans and check ups. From Lister hospital, Addenbrooks, Luton and Dunstable and Great Ormand Street, Sienna has endured countless visits, some being very distressing for her.
Sienna has had botox injections as her legs are very stiff and she cannot walk unaided. As she us so eager to move around she has sudden falls, being so unbalanced. Sienna is non verbal and incontinent and needs round the clock care. Daily physiotherapy helps Sienna.

Today Sienna is a bright living little girl. She loves music, water play, sensory toys and books. Sienna still cannot walk unaided and needs a lot of help. We continue to see 9 health professions and Sienna is scheduled for tendon surgery as well as other surgeries to help with her walking.
