in Life

Tiff emailed me a few moments ago.

The paediatrician rang her.

Ivy has been approved for her IVIG.

She will be admitted to hospital at 10.30am tomorrow morning for her first round of treatment.

All of Ivy’s doctors had seen the petition, so they fast tracked the decision.

Thankyou to everyone who blogged about it. Thankyou to the 1100+ people who signed the petition. Thankyou so SO much to everyone who banded together to help.

It has all been so worth it to see her get the treatment she needs to be a normal little girl.

Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for helping. Just, thankyou.

Thank you, lovely. Tiff and the troops are beside themselves with joy. You are probably the only person who actually took positive action in this situation. The rest of us complained and offered advice and support, but you got up off your pregnant backside and made something happen. So, thank you.

tiff September 9, 2008 at 6:33 pm

Thank you! You are SO amazing and I am in awe of you. My kids have a new hero, her name is VERONICA!!!!

Amy September 9, 2008 at 6:33 pm

Thanks Veronica. You’re tops.

thank you so much for doing this. I’m glad Ivy will now get the treatment she should have already. I was all set to contact A Current Affair about it, but you started the petition, so I waited and now I don’t need to. But maybe I should anyway. They could do a story about how “people power” can work small miracles.

Hey sweet, have felt free to steal this post and pass on the good news. Have given you credit as guest-blogger at the bottom. Many hugs and CONGRATS and I sure hope that Ivy knows how very much she is loved around the world when she’s 15 and living that normal teenage life ;].

I am sitting here with tears in my eyes – given that I don’t touch type (I have to hunt and peck), it makes it very difficult to type. And the lump in my throat is making it difficult to talk. I AM SO FUCKING HAPPY!!!!!!!!! My God, Veronica, I knew you were special, I have always said you were special and now – now the whole world knows just how special you are. Well done you. Well done.

And Tiff. Oh My God. She must love you to death. I know I do.
