In May of 2006 we lost Matt, Liam's Dad after a courageous battle with a brain tumour, he was 34 years old. In April of 2008 we got the devastating news that 7 year old Liam had an extremely rare form of cancer in his sinus cavity. This blog is where we can update you on Liam's progess with his brave battle. "If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them."

Day 26

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 11:01 am on Thursday, May 15, 2008

Nothing to report today – Liam still running around like a lunatic, he tells me he got 2nd in his class for the practice of the cross country they did yesterday, if that is right he is not doing too bad at all considering his sinus is totally blocked.  Must get that athletic build and the stamina from me! 

First two nights with Coco have gone really well, she slept in her crate in Liams room last night – at his insistence – and we didn’t hear a peep.  No wee accidents either, however she walked out into the lounge and promptly did the business on the carpet. 

We have a pre op appointment on Thursday (22nd) at Hutt hospital and then we need to be there at 7.15am the following Wednesday for the surgery – very early start for us.

Take care

Coco is georgeous, but I hope she is toilet trained by the time I come down to stay! I’m sure I will be able to bring her for a visit when you are in hospital Liam. xxx Grandma

Coco is sooooo cute, and we can see Liam adores her. Good luck with the toilet training, and I hope she doesn’t eat your slippers!

Hey Becs and Liam, mum sent me the link to your blog and I just wanted to wish you all the best. Sending you good vibes from Edinburgh for a breezy surgery and a speedy recovery.

Liam, you sound like a real trooper mate, wish I was half as brave as ya!
