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 44

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 6:47 pm on Monday, June 2, 2008

The rest of yesterday passed quietly, Jasper and the girls came in around 5.30 and they started playing cards with Liam.  We popped him in his wheelchair and went down to the patients lounge for the evening where we sat and watched the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.  It was getting quite late by the time it finished but Liam was determined he was going to watch all of it.  He enjoyed the movie and enjoyed being out of his room.  He wanted to go shopping at Queensgate for more nintendo games, but is not quite allowed to venture that far just yet. 

Last night was my first night in the lazy boy and I am happy to report there was no snoring from me – that could have been because I was awake the whole bloody night though!  He was still having 2 hourly checks so just as I would fall back to sleep the nurses would come in again – not to mention eveything goes numb from lying one way to long!  The doctor is very happy with the way things are going so he is now out to four hourly checks which is great. 

Liam is feeling good, tomorrow should be a good day with tubes coming out and the possibility of eating on the cards – he is very excited about that.  Andrea popped in with a rubics cube thingee today for him to play with which is rather noisy, in fact two of the nurses have been in to check what alarm is going off when he is playing it.

Jasper and the girls have just left so Liam is getting onto the computer to play a bit of club penguin.  Hopefully we will have a restful night tonight.

Becs and Liam

Liam, it is great to hear that you have benn able to get up and about a bit more….Good also to hear you might be able to try out the “eating gear” again tomorrow. I wouldn’t be suprised if Graham Henry gives you a call to talk to the new All Blacks about what to do when the going gets tough…I think they could all learn a thing or two from how tough and brave you have been in recent times. We are thinking of you….and mum (with the numb arm)….and Ashleigh. Take Care and lotsaluv, Martin and Toinon.
