I thought our other little trooper deserves her own thread at the mo.


TKS has had some bad news today and needs all our love, hugs, prayers and support, since shes give this to so many of us on here.

Shes in costa RBH for a battery of test, cons has been today and said at the mo he doesnt think its asthma he feels its a steep decline in her underlying lung disease( bronchiolitis) , and asked if shed consider a transplant? as you can all well imagine our little friend is shocked and undoubedly upset. She has more tests to come and will get all results together on tuesday and is seeing the transplant team sometime next week. She cant acesss auk to reply but can get on to read posts, so all leave your messages her for her to read and i will keep you updated with her replies.

Love Andrea xxx

  • Tks - keep thinking positive, as Owl says this is a big step but if it makes the difference it's worth it - try to see it as an opportunity rather than a backwards step. Hope things start to improve for you and that the tests aren't too traumatic.

  • Just had a long chat with TKS, just to clarify she is being assesed by the transplant team, nothing is certain and it is one of many avenues that are being explored. She has seen this thread and says thank you for all the good wishes. She seemed pretty wheezy but perky now she has had a chance to take it in and had a chat with her specialist nurse.

  • hey TKS, you are certainly keeping folks amused! Hope you are doing ok and the memory card and puter all recover. love hugs and prayers,.


  • Just had a chat with TKS, yesterday she was a bit down, you know what she is like always ready to help others but I got the feeling she had the weight of the world on her shoulders and feeling it last night. However, today is another day as they say, she said that her discussion with the drs today was positive. IgEs through the roof, and it looks like there is potential for reversabilty so asthma well back in the frame. she is going to play with a PIKO for as month and then go back for review at the RBH. Other things have not been ruled out but showing reversabilty means there is room for attempting to improve things through new meds etc. Oh and she going to become house dust aware! I will let her fill you in on the detials when she is back at home later this week. It was good to hear her sounding so positive again, she deserves it.


  • My thoughts and prayers are with you

  • Fat horses and jammed data cards! Sending more good wishes and hugs and thanks for keeping us ammused! Please keep happy! Laughter is good medication in tamed amounts!

    Love & Huggs!

  • Hello,

    I just wanted to say thanks for all your posts. When I saw how many there was I had tears in my eyes. Thankyou for caring. I'm using bex's laptop still in brompton but I'm going home tomorrow. Its been the usual RBH admission of ups and downs. But we have a plan now and I'm feeling a bit more confident than I did. If anyone is interested I will go into what happened when I get home.

    huge hugs

    Tks xxx

  • I can spent a lovely afternoon with TKS had lots of healthy comfort food - TKS you had better eat those remaining stawberries - lots of laughs (sitting with her needs a health warning) she is now HDM aware and has excellent piko techinique! We put the world to rights well almost right and decided we needed to live in outer space and will also soon be patenting the nasal nebuliser :)
