Ashley Cain's 'heartbroken' partner Safiyya reveals baby Azaylia is still suffering horrific nosebleeds
ASHLEY Cain's girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee has revealed their daughter Azaylia is still having horrific nosebleeds – and said watching her suffer is 'torture'.
Last night, EOTB star Ashley revealed their seriously ill eight-month-old was rushed to hospital for a blood transfusion which could give her an extra few days to live.
However, Safiyya took to Instagram today to tell her 612,000 followers that Azaylia is still having nosebleeds and their community nurse was soon to arrive to access her.
She began: "Azalyia was experiencing nosebleeds yesterday and that's down to the blood and the platelets in the body that are not being able to clot the blood so it's just bleeding through her nose.
"So about 11 o'clock last night we decided to go to the hospital
and get a platelet transfusion for her.
"Unfortunately overnight, she's still experienced the nosebleeds and the clotting hasn't happened," she continued.
"I've just spoke to our community nurse who is taking care of us
and they're going to come out and have a little look and review of her today
so just sitting tight for then".
The 33-year-old then urged parents to trust their "gut instincts" if they're worried about their child's health, before she thanked Azalyia's medical team.
"Anything that you're experiencing with your child, you know your child best," she added. "So always listen to your child, and go with your gut instinct.
"The best thing we feel like was to give her a platelet transfusion
and our hospital and our consultant, nurses were so onboard with us.
"They have been amazing and let us straight back in and get that done so smoothly. It's something that the NHS and the service they provide is amazing."
Despite her positivity, Safiyya admitted that their experience has been "torture" so they're feeling "blessed" to be able to spend as much time with her as they can.
She continued: "I wake up in the morning and I look at her and I just feel so blessed every single morning. I'm waking up with her and having her there to hold and to smile and to sing Jungle Book theme tunes all day long…
"I just feel so happy that I can spend today with her and play. [I] just love her as much as I can and tell her how much I love her.
"It's absolutely heartbreaking, this feels like torture and its so difficult
and it's so hard and the support you guys are giving us is amazing and it's incredible".
Her video comes after Ashley revealed he demanded the transfusion last night after eight-month-old Azaylia began to bleed from her nose.
Azaylia has a rare form of leukaemia as well as tumours on her brain and other organs.
Speaking on the car ride home from the hospital, Ashley said: "We rushed Azaylia in tonight on oxygen because she'd been bleeding out from the nose.
"Because of her blood cancer it means it eats away at the cells that help to clot the blood, so with the tumours, plus the lack of platelets in her body, that means she could bleed out from the inside and that's no way for Azaylia to go."
He turned his camera to show Azaylia resting peacefully opposite him and said she had been "so happy and lively".
Ashley said the quick-thinking decision to get a transfusion could have extended his daughter's life.
"If that can preserve us for one day, two days, three days, every day's a blessing," he said. "Let's go, champ."
Over the weekend Ashley thanked Azaylia for 'the best eight months of my life' after bringing her home from hospital.
The tiny tot has been given "just days to live", with her parents taking her home in an ambulance so she can spend her final hours in comfort.
The 30-year-old shared a series of photographs of his baby girl all snug in a pink woolly hat and blanket.
He captioned the pictures: "Yesterday Azaylia returned home from hospital like the fearless little lioness that she is.
"Today is her 8th month birthday! Happy 8 months baby! I honestly thought @therock was my hero until I spent the last 8 months with you."
Praising his brave little girl, he continued: "You taught me how to be strong when I needed strength, you taught me how to smile when I am feeling sad, you taught me how to cherish every single moment – as these moments are all we have.
"You’ve been tenacious, fearless, courageous, positive, happy and loving through times which I thought would make it impossible!
"You’ve given me the best 8 months of my life through the toughest of times. MY HERO. I LOVE YOU."
On Saturday, Ashley and Safiyya had an expert come in to get casts of Azaylia's hands and feet done as "so many people (were) wanting one these castings".
Safiyya showed a woman mixing the mould in their kitchen on her Instagram stories and explained she was worried they would "run out of product" because so many people wanted one.
"Getting the most beautiful casting done for my beautiful girl," she captioned the Instagram stories.
She filmed her sleeping daughter with her foot in the mould as her doting dad her held Azaylia with his eyes closed and gently kissing her forehead.
Safiyya then filmed herself getting close to Azaylia and Ashley, as her daughter briefly woke up to look at the camera.
The parents then leaned in together to kiss Azaylia's head as the castings lady started on another foot casting.
An emotional Safiyaa then rested her arm on Ashley as she kissed his shoulder, while he cuddled Azaylia.
On Thursday, dad Ashley revealed doctors found more tumours and have run out of options to save his daughter and that they planned to make the most of whatever time she had left.
