The five-year-old will be in Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, for at least another month after the surgery on her hands and neck a month ago.

Staff, residents and visitors at Anglesea Heights nursing home in Ipswich held a series of fundraisers including raffles, a version of 'The Weakest link', and concerts to raise £1,025.
The local branch of BUPA nursing agency based at the home joined in, and manager Tina Clark did a sponsored swim.
Sainsbury's staff from Warren Heath were among hundreds who took part in the Ipswich Hospital abseil, as part of ongoing fundraising efforts for Terri.
A group of nine from the store raised about £600, and Terri is a beneficiary of the store's penny-back carrier bag donation scheme.
