taking flight


My little one is busting out in braveness tomorrow.

I should know, from the way she’s managed everything since diagnosis, that she can take on the world. Resilience is her new middle name surely.

In a few short hours she’s going overseas, by herself. It’s a quick trip and has been organised in a very short time. It’s a close trip, across the ditch, and I could get to her in less than a day if need be.

In 2012 she nearly died and for months we wondered why. 2013 answers, questions, pills, iv meds, hard won health and we know it’s transient. Smoke and mirrors of remission.

Not even two weeks in to 2014 and she’s ready to push for independence again. It’s a test run for a longer adventure, far from home, later this year – between infusions.

Big love baby girl, I can’t wait to hear about New Zealand.


Who’s your hero?
