Regular readers might be wondering why I’ve been missing in action on my blog and on Twitter over the last month.
Exactly a month ago my active and happy 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
The dignosis was sudden and incredibly unexpected. One day Novalie was at school, the next in hospital getting ready to start chemo.
We’ve now spent 4.5 weeks in hospital included a terrifying stint in ICU due to septic shock.
Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia is the most common childhood cancer but thankfully it has an excellent cure rate. However, the treatment is long — perhaps 2.5 to 3 years. We’ve been told it gets easier!
Prior to the diganosis, I had a few blog posts half written. So I hope to finish these and get re-involved in the edtech community when things get easier.
I’ve been writing a private blog for friends and family to document our journey. It’s proving cathartic and a good way to share information. This is the first time I’ve used a blog in a personal way but I’m enjoying it!
When life throws you a curveball, there’s no choice but to hit it out of the park!
