in the next week im going to try and do a couple of catch up blog posts about avas journey!
for those of you who dont know ava, she is the daughter of one of my dearest friends.
ava turned 3 on valentines day.
ava has leukemia.
she is undergoing treatment. 1 year and 9 months down. only 3 months to go… her final round of chemo and surgery is scheduled for june!
i love her with all my heart and i know she will be ok!
i am documenting her journey to recovery as a gift to her mum because she asked and i feel so honored…
you might want to go and read more about avas story here and see a few photos i took of her in our secret garden one day when she was doing great and feeling up to an adventure and then visit here to see her on a not so good day, in hospital, waiting for test results… if you have a sick child you know there is lots and lots of waiting involved which is exhausting and the worst type of torture…
where is ava at now? she has good and bad weeks. this week is not a good week. she is lethargic. her liver levels are elevated which is not something we want to see. next week is a big week. the doctors will run tests on her liver and do full iron studies. we are all hoping and praying for good results! i will come back and share more pictures and results then but please keep this gorgeous girl in your thoughts!
these photos were taken in april 2010. did i mention i was just a little behind sharing stuff with you all? i just love the warmth and excitement in her little face… and meet her big sister lola who is also an absolute delight! i pretty much always shoot her laying down, making her giggle from above so excuse me if you get a glimpse of a sock here or there! rowe xxx
p.s. kel… my favourite photo is the one where she is brushing her hair cause i remember how excited she was to show me she had hair on her precious little head! i know the first series of images from the lounge room are a little dark but i think they are still sweet. hope you like them sweetheart!
