Toddler set to leave hospital for first time

A three-year old who has spent her entire life in hospital will get to go home for the first time after this weekend, after spending her entire life in Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Maisie Harris suffers from Ondine's Curse, a disease which means her brain forgets to remind her body to breathe.

After she leave the hospital on Monday, she will be able to sleep in her own bed for the first time using a new ventilator to help her breathe.

The hospital held a going-home party for her yesterday on Miffy Ward to celebrate her bravery and wish her well as she spends her last weekend in the hospital she has always called home.
