This smiley, wee girl is Anh. She is 4 years old and she has hydrocephalus, which has been treated with a shunt.
Recently, she has been having a really hard time battling with bacterial meningitis, her shunt has been infected and has needed to be removed. She has spent 6 long weeks recovering in hospital with IV antibiotics and under continuous monitoring and testing . Her nannies have been constantly at her side, ensuring she receives the love and care that she needs in this difficult time.
At the onset of her illness, everyone was so concerned about Anh, as bacterial meningitis is a life threatening illness. We were all very worried that she might not make it through. Anh has shown us, how brave she can be and that she is such a fighter! We are all very proud of her and happy to see her recover. She has had a recent lumbar puncture which has confirmed the infection has cleared!
Anh will be needing a new shunt inserted to continue to treat her hydrocephalus. We are waiting to find out when this will happen.
Little Feather Foundation has been covering the costs so far for Anh’s medical care including medicine, nutrition and her stay in the hospital.
Anh is a very loved child by her nannies, we are looking forward to when she can return to her loving home.
We will update you all on Anh’s progress!
