A little more positive news today, Dainere is being transferred to Canberra Hospital next Wednesday, there she will be in the capable hands of our own paediatrician. By transferring to Canberra it means that we never have to deal with the pathetic treatment we have been exposed to here. Even today we experienced the vindictiveness of a doctor who against other staffs advice would not discharge Dainere, which was extremely disappointing however we must look at the positive and that is being transferred to Canberra Hospital and treated by our own doctor and his team.
Dainere's MRI and Lumbar puncture have been postponed until January 2011, they had previously been scheduled for 6th December, however we do have to watch for any deterioration in her condition that would indicate changes in the tumour.
The strength and courage that Dainere has been able to display during this difficult, not to mention traumatic experience shows just what an extraordinary girl she truly is and perhaps some of the doctors need to take a lead from her.
We will continue to let you know her progress. Thank you again for all your support towards all of the family, we don't feel so alone through this because of all of you.
