    Hi All,

    Well I am in Australia and our Local Hospital is the Royal Childrens Hospital in Melbourne, this is where Sarah was transferred on Day 2 of Life and spent a further 110 days before finally coming home.

    Each year on Good Friday they run a fundraising appeal, to raise much needed funds for equipment and research.

    While Sarah was still in hospital, they came to do an interview and it was played today during the live coverage of the appeal.

    Here it is if you want a look, its good coverage on her pump:)

    And if you wanted to read on the Good Friday Appeal the website is www.goodfridayappeal.com.au. There is also an article on the website about "our tinniest battlers"

    God bless your daughter and your family! What a little fighter. You should also be proud of yourself for taking such great care of her. She really is a little miracle!
