As morning came round, Evie had survived the night but was still heavily sedated and was wired up with machines racing to keep her alive. I would sing her songs I knew she liked and tell her stories she loved to hear, fighting back the tears as I didn't want her to hear me cry. It was painful.
After 48 hours, Evie began to get better and day-by-day she was taken off a machine. The 6th day arrived when it was time to see if Evie had the strength to breathe on her own. She did it. The happiest moment of my life, watching my little girl come round. The doctor advised that she was very lucky and we were right to follow our instincts. If we had left her any longer she may not have any limbs or could have lost her life.
We were so very grateful to QMC Intensive Care Unit for saving our daughter and to Lincoln Hospital who acted so very quickly.
Evie is 8yrs old now and only suffered with hearing problems, which she battles with every so often, but this she can deal with.
Evie has been kickboxing for over 2 yrs now and enters many competitions over the region, She is a true fighter in more ways than one.
We feel like the luckiest parents in the world. We will never stop raising money for MRF as although we were lucky there are many families that are not. And my heart goes out to each and every parent that has had to battle against this disease.
