Aillidh needs all of our prayers
July 2, 2012
THE parents of little Aillidh Kinnaird tonight issued a plea for our prayers as their brave daughter’s life hangs in the balance.
Leukaemia-stricken Aillidh – who is also battling a respiratory virus – is on a high frequency ventilator as she undergoes kidney dialysis at Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow.
Her mum and dad, Leigh and Andrew, of Sandbank, said in a Facebook post that the procedure would “hopefully purge her of the fluid in her lungs and save her life”.
The couple added: “So we must pull together now, they have given her every drug possible.
“We must, must pray, chant, what have you that her lungs CLEAR for her to have a fighting chance of life.”
But Leigh and Andrew also said: “Do not despair, the news is not all bad. There are NO new bugs in her lungs. She has cleared all but the metapneumo virus.”
They concluded: “Please. This little girl has unfinished business here. She is tired but we are strong. ‘Do not be afraid. Simply have faith.’ Much love to you all.”
