Erin remains in hospital to receive treatment for other ongoing conditions but is doing well, staff at the hospital said.
“They are all truly amazing and we will be forever grateful,” Mrs Bates posted to Facebook in praise of her daughter’s healthcare workers.
However, despite the medical miracle of Erin’s recovery, her parents “take it personally” when they see people flouting the coronavirus restrictions and not maintaining social distancing orders. The coupe had been trying to start a family for 10 years.
“All I’m seeing lately is jokes about coronavirus,” Mrs Bates said.
“I understand humour is very important to keep you going through this hard time but please think about those people it does effect.”
“Our little girl has lung and heart disease and floppy airways and is still currently sitting in intensive care, if our little girl catches this virus she won’t be as lucky to fight it.
“The anxiety every time a new nurse or doctor comes into our bay is getting unbearable. And the simplest things like going to get a drink downstairs now scares me so much so that I don’t and I isolate myself so I don’t have to come into contact with anyone just to keep my little girl alive.”
