Movement For Mia

First message to friends

Our beautiful sweet Mia has been in PICU (paediatric intensive care unit) from last Sunday night.  She became critically ill very quickly and we almost lost her last Sunday night.  Laboratory results found she had Influenza A, Influenza B, RSV and then Strep A bacterial infection and Sepsis quickly took over her little body causing havoc.  She is a fighter and survived but unfortunately she is still very ill.  Our special girl has an extremely long recovery road ahead of her.  Her arms, legs, hands and feet have been damaged.  Only time will tell us what her final outcome will be.  We are of course struggling with all of this but we have amazing friends and family supporting us here and with Ellie and Max at home.  Please send us oodles of your love, thoughts and prayers.  Xx

  25. Dear all wonderful friends and family. Mia’s organs recovered and her breathing tube was removed on Saturday. From a medical point of view she has recovered amazingly well considering how fatally ill she was. She was observed in icu for a few days and now we have been moved to a ward. She has been very quiet, sad looking and reserved. Because of poor blood circulation to her hands and feet, she will most likely lose all of these. It is just a waiting game now on pain medication, amputation at some stage and then months of rehabilitation. The future feels so scary but I’m trying to find hope that she will have a bright future. Xx

  26. Amy and Pete, it makes me very sad to hear this. I hope Mia recovers as best she can. Wishing you all the strength through this tough time.

  27. Oh my gosh Amy. I am so very sorry to hear what you and your beautiful family are going through. To your sweet little Mia I will pray every day and night for her to have the best possible recovery. No matter what the outcome we are always here for you and your family.

  28. We wish you Amy Wilkinson and Peter Wilkinson the best as parents trying to help Mia come to terms with her life changes ahead…..Peter and Amy we also wish you the very best as a couple ….while we are not in your day to day life we think of you and your family all ways and if we can help please let us know……we also hope with time Max and Ellie will adjust to the changes too…..little jon

  29. Oh my goodness. I do hope she recovers quickly and the blood circulation improves in her hands and feet as to avoid amputation. Poor darling!!! x

  30. I have been thinking of you all every day. I wish I had chatted to you at gymnastics a couple of weeks ago when I saw you rather than just a wave. Your community is behind you and you are all much loved x

  31. I know when compared to her life her fingertips and toes are not even a blip on the radar, but it is still ok to grieve over them. It still sucks, and feeling crappy about that aspect doesn’t make you less grateful that she is alive. Just in case no one has told you that. Thinking of you all.

  32. Oh Amy and Pete, I am beyond devastated for you. Sending all our love, strength, hope and prayers during this very difficult time xxx

  42. Poor Mia! Good news that she is out of ICU. I’ve always found you to be such a happy and positive person Amy. They are beautiful qualities, exactly what Mia needs at this time. Stay strong and positive, wishing you and your family all the very very best xx

    1. Unfortunately back into icu in the middle of the night. Mia’s haemoglobin levels dropped and they aren’t sure why. Possibly infection or bleeding. Not sure. She is back into surgery today to close the cuts they made in her legs to relieve pressure. Xx
