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've read you posting for years: often about your beautiful long-limbed redhead. You were so proud of her. She was so loved.

I'm so sorry x

And let you rest, my love
And let your heart be full
And let the winds whisper sweet and soft
As stars surround in your soul.

And let the world be glad, my love
That you have been its friend
And let those who have loved you most
Hold hands at your journey’s end

And let the sky fill blue, my love
And let the rain fall slow
And let the pitter patter of your feet
Sound softly as you go.

I'm so sorry for your loss Expat.
