Hi I have a daughter 5 with mild cerebral palsy and a daughter 7 with severe asthma . Both of them in different ways are really suffering at the moment and it is really getting me down. Lauren who is 5 had a colostomy bag as a baby and then had it reversed. She is in her 2nd year at school as is still not yet dry during the day/night. Lauren is waiting for some more surgery but in the mean time wets up to 20 times a day and school are starting to get fed up of changing her . They are adamant that she is not to wear a pull up but are also reluctant to help her change and leave her wet to come home most days.we have had so much conflict at school lately that i am beginning to give up fighting for my kids and thats a bad thing for a mum to say. Chloe has severe asthma and is controlled with a sub -cut pump but we are still in and out of hospital like yo-yos . Chloe had another stay in ITU last week ,came home had 2 days at school and is now off with another chest infection so the head is getting at me about her attendance. Chloe don't seem to recover before another attack takes hold. Today I got the shock of my life one of my friends aged 33 has 2 girls aged 4 + 5 was diagnosed with leukemia last week . She passed away today her whole body was riddled with cancer. I can't get her poor girls out of my head . I'm sorry for the moan but i'm having a week of feeling really down and sorry for my self. I'm sick of the sight of hospitals and would do anything to have 2 healthy girls. They both go through so much. Sorry6 again for moaning . Take Care Nikki xxx
