A baby who was just hours from death after being born without an immune system has made an 'incredible' turnaround.
Six-month-old Nina Warnell has been temporarily discharged from Great Ormond Street Hospital and has even been on walks in a pushchair with her parents.
The tough youngster, who has lived most of her life in a 'bubble chamber', is awaiting a bone marrow transplant and was flown to the UK by medical jet from Poland in May.
"The work undertaken by the team at Great Ormond Street has been incredible, you cannot believe this is the same baby," said proud dad Graeme, 42, from Maidenhead, who is married to Aga, 37.
Nina is continuing with radical enzyme and immunoglobin treatment to build up her strength so she can undergo a bone marrow transplant in January.
