Thank you for helping me to prepare for her returning home

Hi Nishti, Thanks so much for your time this morning. I found everything you said really helpful. Sorry for asking so many questions so quickly! I was conscious of time. Thank you for helping to me to prepare for her returning home for Christmas day. We are so excited and pleased to have her here for Christmas but her severity of illness, so suddenly and so recently, does, as you can imagine, make me feel nervous. Many thanks.

They saved our daughter’s life and gave us back the girl we knew before anorexia hit

You’ll be pleased to know that she is doing fantastic! She has maintained her weight (and gained 1lb last week, 4lbs in total) doing well at school (a little too cheeky & sassy sometimes, as you can imagine, but on the whole great) and mentally, seems in a much better place. We both still miss contact with you all at Stafford, as you were all such a big parts of our lives, especially our daughter’s. Where do I start with Huntercombe Stafford, besides the obvious….they saved my daughter’s life and gave us back the girl we knew before anorexia hit.The first day we arrived, absolutely terrified, I was greeted by Nurse Emma, (who would become my lifeline and probably one of the most important people in Amy’s recovery). She was so kind, warm and professional, coming to the car to talk my daughter out of it, providing emotional support right from the off. Dr Gore was also a breath of fresh air when it came to doctors in ED unit/teams. He is such an asset to the team. I shall be forever grateful.
