    It must be so dreadfully tough for you all and the waiting is definitely agonising at times. I'm keeping you and your little fighter in my thoughts xxx

    I have been following along but haven't replied as I really didn't know what to say.

    I just want you to know I will have your DD and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I wish you all the best possible outcome.

    I've just caught up with this thread. So sorry to hear you and your family and especially your DD have to go through something as horrible as a cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment. Luckily though it's a "good" one to have and it's treatable and survivable. I used to work in adult haematology/oncology so I know how hard it is (second hand of course). I can only imagine how much harder it is when it's a young child. How long are they expecting treatment to take? Are they looking at putting in a central line (PICC, Portacath etc)? I assume they will, hopefully they'll do it soon. They're not as painful as peripheral cannulas and a lot easier to draw blood from (majority of the time at least). Hopefully this will make it less traumatic for your DD (and you!). Does the hospital you're at have a starlight kids section or something similar? Distraction can be a big help when DD is feeling rotten from the treatment or cabin fever from being in hospital. Have some special toys or treats for her for those times when she's immunocompromised (neutropenic) and limited as to where she can go and what she can do. This could be books, toys, colouring in etc. It was not uncommon to find out patients were suffering symptoms of depression because they felt cooped up all the time while they were stuck in hospital and in isolation. Make use of the playground areas when DD is well enough to use them. The fresh air and sunshine will make a huge difference to how she feels and how you feel. The Leukaemia Foundation will be a worthwhile resource as well, not just for information about lymphoma, but also as practical supports and information for you as parents. I hope the next few days go well and DD copes with all the poking and prodding. My thoughts are with you xx
