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 38

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 12:35 pm on Tuesday, May 27, 2008

I had to go and pick Liam up from school this morning and take him back down for further blood tests as they forgot to do one of them yesterday.  I was not very impressed and Liam to say the least was not happy.  He got through it though and then was most put out when I told him he had to go back to school!

I am now running around like a headless chook trying to pack the things we are going to need over the next 2 weeks.  We will head into Wellington to stay the night tonight and will then be up at about 5am tomorrow.

I will update the blog as soon as I can tomorrow night, but we are not expecting him out of surgery before 5pm.

One sleep to go, better keep packing.
