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 90 – Back to School

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 4:27 pm on Monday, July 21, 2008

Liam’s first day back at school for quite awhile went without a hitch today.  He didn’t particularly want to go back as he said he has more fun at home and at school he has to work.  He wore shorts, but even though it was a sunny day I think possibly he wanted to show off his impressive scar.

After the initial curious stares and questions from the kids he appears to have slotted back in nicely.  He was running around playing tag and said he wasn’t “it” all the time even though he still has a bit of trouble running.  I also didn’t get a phone call saying he was asleep at his desk or had fallen over and injured himself in the playground so I think it went well!  Long may it last.

Cousin Hannah started at Kapanui today (transferred from her other primary school) so that kept Ashleigh excited as they got to play together at playtime.  I spent the day with my nose in a textbook, and it is nice to be back in some sort of a routine.

Thats all for now.

Back to me… Looks like you guys had a fab holiday. I worked through, so we were pretty much Wgtn based – rugby, playstation, table tennis and sleepovers were the order of most days for the boys.

Take care of each other and I hope good news on the test front comes through soon.

much love, the Tullys
