This has come as a shock to us, but Frogmorton's (Toni) daughter has been diagnosed with Leukemia. She has suffered for ages with what they diagnosed as Epilepsy and has been treated for that, she was taken ill over Christmas and rushed into hospital. Toni has been there at her side ever since.
I'm sure we're all praying for her and hope that Lucy is young enough to get through this and live a normal life. In the meantime we must also pray for strength for Toni and Paul who must be worried out of their minds as we all would for out precious daughters.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Toni is going through such a worrying and distressing time with her daughter. The family are in my thoughts, and I do hope that Lucy will recover from this dreadful illness.

    Dear Toni,

    I was so very sad to hear your news. I hope that Lucy will now receive the very best of care from her medical team, and that she sees the benefit of any treatment offered very soon.

    Both you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending you a ((hug)) and all my love.

    Lucy still has epilepsy, her meds were altered and she was struggling with the new regime. This led to a hospital appointment on Friday where her bloods were found to be utterly haywire so she was admitted to hospital. Further tests on Saturday confirmed the diagnosis and she was transferred to a teenage cancer ward at a bigger hospital. She is on IV antibiotics thanks to an infection and is currently waiting for the operation to install the Hickman line. Chemotherapy begins tomorrow.

    Toni will be staying in with her for at least a fortnight. She is coping, I don't know how but she is. DD

    Toni is staying there with Lucy, a very worrying time for her. We can only hope that she gets some rest and of course comfort from all the prayers and good wishes from friends on here.

    Both you and Toni know that my texting is rubbish :lol: So our texts were fairly brief.
    I know Lucy still has epilepsy.......but I thought the change over was going well.....last time I chatted to Toni she thought so as well.
    She is one very strong woman.....but this is going to be a real test.
    Toni and Lucy ...all my love and support and of course prayers

    Love
