Ashley Cain ‘s girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee has revealed the couple’s baby daughter Azaylia has opened her eyes again after being rushed to hospital last night for an emergency transfusion.
The former Ex On The Beach star, 30, welcomed his little girl with girlfriend Safiyya in August and she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia when she was just eight weeks old.
She was recently released from hospital but her worried parents took her back late last night after she suffered a series of nose bleeds.
The tot underwent a platelet transfusion to help induce clotting, and her mum Safiyya has now revealed Azaylia has now opened her eyes but she’s waiting on a visit from community nurse to check on her condition.
In a post on Instagram, Safiyya wrote: “Last night we took Azaylia to the hospital for an emergency platelet transfusion as the leukaemia caused profused bleeding.
“Azaylia had a 30min transfusion, but this didn’t stop the bleeding over night, I put her on her observation machine so I could keep an eye on her oxygen & heart rate levels for reassurance.
“I have the privilege to wake up this morning and watch her open her eyes and play this is precious.”
Safiyya added in a video: “So Azaylia was experiencing lots of nose bleeds yesterday so about 11 o’clock we decided to go to the hospital and get a platelet transfusion for her.
“Unfortunately overnight she still experienced the nose bleeds and the clotting hasn’t happened.
