There is a certain feeling of fulfillment when you find out that something you tried to help with worked. I just came from Tiff’s blog, Ivy’s Mom, Her blog is , Three Ring Circus. After reading a few of her posts and learning about all she has to deal with, I can think of no better name for her blog. The good news is that it seem all the attention from a number of different blogs, and 1100 people who signed the petition, did the trick.
Ivy got her IVIG treatment, and is now home again. The people who make the decisions saw the petition and approved Ivy’s treatment, it seems we have a little power of persuasion after all.
Evidently it may take up to 6 infusions before any changes are experienced. At least she has that chance now, and a chance to be a little girl, to play with other children, to run around outside, and so many other things that children should be able to do.
Veronica over at Sleepless Nights, started the whole process, and then others jumped on the band wagon and blogged about it also. I originally read about it on LouCeel, and joined in the effort. I am just surprised that it all happened so fast, happy, but surprised.
Thank you to everyone who helped out, and who signed the petition, it really did make a difference, and allow little Ivy to get the treatment she needed.
