I have received a text from Toni - tests have confirmed that Lucy has acute lymphoblastic leukaemia which has excellent survival rates. We will all do our best to ensure that she is in that number, yes? DD

    Thank you DD.

    I'm sure if we all wish hard enough, Lucy will be one of the survivors. Love and hugs.

    A little glimmer of light. I'm sure that'll be their focus. And ours.

    Hi Toni
    It was great to hear from you.....although we don't expect replies. We post because we all love you.
    Lucy has got a hard time ahead of her but you look after yourself as well......you know what stress can do.!!!!
    Is Paul home or away?
    Love and prayers to both of you
    Love

    Toni, you are only reaping what you have sown. You are a huge support to everyone on this forum and you more than deserve our concern and good wishes.

    You are right – Lucy has a very difficult time ahead but, if she's as tough a cookie as her Mum, she'll handle it and she'll have the best support possible at her side.

    Don't worry about getting on here. That's not a priority right now. Just look after Lucy and please, please don't forget to look after yourself too, if only for Lucy's sake. ((((()))))

    Toni, Lucy

    Sending you all my love and support. I can't imagine what you are facing right now but you are an amazing person Toni which must mean Lucy is too. You are so strong but I want to give you extra strength in case you need it. We're all right behind you and the girls are sending some double strength love and healing vibes too. Thinking of you and hope that today is as ok as it can be. Loads of love and hugs,

    Toni,

    I just want to share something with you, in the hope that it will give you some comfort.

    My friends granddaughter was diagnosed with what Lucy has, at more or less the same age. She is now in her early twenties and has been completely well for some years, although she went through a lot to get to that point. She went on to university, and is now travelling the world with friends.....Vietnam at this moment in time. Her name, strangely enough is.....Antonia, always known as Toni.

    All my love and prayers for Lucy to come through as well as Toni did.....Much love.....Rosie.x.

    Hello everyone, I am saddened to report that the lumbar puncture did not happen because Lucy's platelets were too low; it might be done tomorrow - let's hope so, yes? I know it will be far from easy for either of them but it needs to be done.

    Toni, my thoughts are with you two. End of. Simples. DD

    Good to see you on here Toni. Don't worry about getting on though. We know you need to take care of Lucy. Sending some strength to help you through.

    Thanks for the update DD. It is a little setback but, hopefully, it will be sorted out tomorrow.
