10 years ago we started our journey. Multiple hospital admissions in one year. Lots of tears and anger. While in hospital she decided she wanted to be a nurse at the same world renowned Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) Melbourne that she was patient of for so long.  After graduating from uni she got a job at the Western Private Hospital Footscray, but in her 2nd year she was only offered casual employment. She worked whenever she was offered shifts and continued her other job with an optometrist (Spec Savers).

After a lot of hard graft, this week she starts her new job as a nurse, working 3 days a week in the allergy clinic at RCH. Quite apt as she has food allergies and suffers quite bad eczema. 

So proud of my baby girl.

Fantastic news from your corner lisafromaustralia.always lovely to hear of a sufferer becoming a survivor instead.and with everything she’s been through I’m sure your daughter will be a loving and empathetic nurse. People with allergies go through a lot in their efforts to lead as normal a life as possible and to contribute to that sense of well being will probably increase your daughters sense of well being too.
Good luck for her in her new jobπŸ™‚

So wonderful to hear this news!  It's what we dream about as parents, and it is even more poignant when our children have recovered from a life-threatening illness such as ED...that our kids will have full, rewarding lives; able to live up to their full potential.

Thanks for sharing your lovely news, and all the best to your d and your family!

Warmly,
sk8r31

Dear LisafromAustralia,

Wow so fantastic. There are a few on ATDT that have had their child at the RCH ED program and they report it does do good work.

Aw Lisa,

Thst is great news.  I remember I used to post around the same time because we joined the forum at the same time.  I am delighted that your d is doing so well.

This post is testament to the importance of dreams and keeping the long term view in mind - so that our children can be pulled through their ed through time and maturity!

Great post.  Hugs.  Well done to you all  xxx
