Recently we had a visit from Arsenah's nurses. The nurses names were Tim and Grace. They spoke to us about children with leukaemia. We learned about blood cells. The blood cells give us oxygen, white blood cells get rid of infections, platelets help blood clot. If there are not enough red blood cells you can get very tired, if your platelets load then if you get a cut or a blood nose it is hard for the blood to stop.
We look out for her by checking that she is not sick or tired. We now have a toy monkey, that we haven't named yet in class. The monkey is to take Arsenah's place when she is not here, it keeps us company. The monkey goes everywhere with us including cooking and gardening and swimming.
Arsenah has her own mini monkey that matches ours. We had lots of questions we asked and the nurses were able to answer them all.
Thanks Grace and Tim for all your help and the information you shared about Arsenah's leukaemia.
