Indianna waits for transplant
THE plight of Grafton toddler Indianna Allen, waiting for a lifesaving liver transplant operation, continues to touch people around the country.
Yesterday Indianna’s father Peter and mother Angela were on national radio continuing their promotion of organ donation.
Mr Allen said the family were no closer in finding a donor liver but were still positive.
“Indie’s still really healthy, so if we can get a liver she’s got a good chance of it being a success,” he said.
Meanwhile, tiny baby Sophia McGrady is doing well at the Mater Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, where doctors are monitoring her progress after she was born 15 weeks premature in the back seat of a car in Grafton last week.
Weighing in at around 660g, Sophia was flown to Brisbane on March 2 with her mum Jasmine James and has spent the first week of her life in a humidicrib.
Her grandmother, Nicole Cook, said the baby was opening her eyes and was able to hang onto fingers.
“She’s just started to drink breast milk through a tube in her mouth,” Ms Cook said.
