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 49

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 8:18 pm on Sunday, June 8, 2008

We have had a very busy weekend.  Jasper and I took all the kids to Cats in Wellington on Friday night, including Liam.  We got the tickets a while ago but weren’t sure if we were going to be able to go, but thought bugger it why not!  We got a few strange looks as Liam does look like he has been in the wars, but we got to our seats and what unfolded was a magical two hours.  Liam was absolutely enthralled and sat there with a grin from ear to ear for the entire performance.  He was so pleased that he got to go, and we were so pleased that we could take him.  It was a fabulous night, all of us enjoyed it immensly and we are planning our next outing to The Sound of Music in September!

I was on netball duty all day Saturday with the first game starting at 8.30 and the last finishing at 3.30, so Liam stayed with Steve and pottered around there playing play station, watching telly, and doing lots of puzzles.  We stayed up and watched the rugby Saturday night and were pleased to be sitting inside in front of the fire watching it rather than at the stadium where it was bucketing down and about -75 degrees! 

Today I took the kids to Indiana Jones and the last crusade for the lost ark and crystal skull (or something like that!) The kids enjoyed it but I thought it a little bit cheesy!  Still it had good effects and was a typical Indiana Jones with about 3000 bullets fired at him within a 10 second space and none of them hitting any of the good guys – ha ha!

We are being visited by the Regional Health teacher tomorrow much to Liams disgust, and we are off to the dressing clinic to get everything checked out on Wednesday.

Until tomorrow
