Ashley Cain sleeps alongside baby daughter Azaylia as mum Safiyya says 'thank you for blessing me with my family'
ASHLEY Cain slept alongside his baby daughter Azaylia as her mum Safiyya said "thank you for blessing me with my family".
The devastated parents are embracing every second of their final days with the eight-month-old little girl after being given the heartbreaking news that her leukaemia is terminal.
The pair have been documenting much of that time on their social media accounts, with Safiyya sharing a sweet video in the early hours of this morning.
The brave mum could be seen in her pyjamas, cradling her little girl as she snoozes.
She pans the camera to show 30-year-old Ashley also asleep on the other side of Azaylia.
Safiyya captioned the sweet video: "Goodnight, thank you for today, and blessing me with my beautiful family."
Last night, she revealed that "struggling" Azaylia is now on oxygen at home after she was rushed to hospital again – where she had another blood transfusion.
She has also lost movement in half of her face due to tumours on her brain.
Last month, Ashley and Safiyya raised over £1 million to take Azaylia to Singapore in a last-ditch attempt to save her life – but were left devastated when they were told the specialists in the country could not help.
Doctors in the UK then discovered tumours throughout Azaylia's body, including her brain and spleen, and delivered the devastating news that they'd run out of options to treat her.
The brave parents have now taken their little girl home from hospital and shared their determination to make her final days as fun, happy, and full of love as possible.
They have had regular trips back into A&E to keep Azaylia comfortable, with the eight month old having regular blood transfusions after crying blood, and bleeding from her nose.
Safiyya has also revealed purple bruises all over Azaylia's body as the leukaemia prevents her blood from clotting.
Azaylia was born in August and diagnosed with the illness at just eight weeks old, with Ashley and Safiyya marking her "eight month birthday" at the weekend.
She has won the hearts of the nation throughout her ordeal, and has been nominated for a Pride of Britain award, and people across the UK also took to their doorsteps to "Clap for Azaylia" earlier this week.
