In memory of our lovely Aillidh

At 11.25 last night, our beautiful, 9-year-old daughter died of complications from treatment for acute myeloid leukaemia, she went into respiratory failure after contracting human metapneumo virus following conditioning chemotherapy for stem cell transplant.

For many days, she lingered on a ventilator. But last night, she developed a pneumothorax and rapidly deteriorated.

She died within seconds of the ventilator being taken off.

I can't believe she's gone, or how broken her long body looked.

Expat, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful daughter.

It must be awful to have the firsts, they are reminding you of what she will never so again.

I wiah she was able to have the firsts but she will watch her siblings do these firsts and guide thekm all the way.

God, Expat, what an awful burden for you to carry, so, so sad for you and wish I could make it all better. Reading your posts puts all my worries into perspective, they are so insignificant in comparison.

I think of Aillidh all the time. Love to you and your family x

My thoughts are still with you.

When Stefen died a friend wrotein a card

Remember your hopes and not your fears,
Remember her smiles and not her tears,
Her life was as full as it could be,
Now she has found peace and tranquility

Expat. We start school in Sept. down our way.
I still can't bear it. Not after all this time and long after Billie would have left.
It's just all that newness, uniforms, shoes, classes and stuff.

I hate September.

Hugs to you x

I hate that this is our reality now. No Aillidh.

Expat I dont know what to say. I wish with all my heart this didnt have to happen to your beautiful girl and if there was any justice in the world you wouldnt be missing her right now. You have been so strong and amazing and moved mountains and never gave up in your fight for Aillidh

We lit a candle in York minster today for ailidh, I was thinking about you all.

Always thinking of you and am in awe of your strength and now you are helping people spot the early signs of this horrid disease. Still so very very sad for you and your family.

I have been awayvl expat. I visited a cathederql, there wqs one candle bearing the words for aillidh. Sleep sound in the arms of god.

My candle says for aillidh always an angel. I lit it and thought of you.
Never far from my thoughts expat. Xx
