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 92

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, July 23, 2008

I took Liam to Kapiti Health Centre today (formally Paraparaumu Hospital) where we visited the Paediatric Doctor whom we met at the original oncology visit in Wellington.  He had a look at Liam’s big toe which he hasn’t been able to straighten since the surgery.  The Doctor seems to think that one of the nerves has been damaged when tissue and bone were taken so Liam will be seeing the physiotherapists to hopefully help it to heal.  He will have exercises to do and possibly a splint to keep it straight.  Other than that there was nothing new to report to us on, still waiting on Baltimore results.

We went in and saw a clinical psychologist as well in Wellington which went ok, but Liam was not feeling very good all day.  He has come down with a temperature of 39 and a throbbing headache which I am putting down to the flu at the moment, as there is a lot of it going around.  Poor little buggar, like he needs this!  Good way to get out of more school I guess.

We got stuck in the traffic on the way home due to the flooding and debris on Centenial Highway after this nasty storm we are having, so it made for a very long day.  Both kids are tucked up in bed, Coco is tucked up in bed as well after being speyed and microchipped yesterday, so I am going to plonk myself on the couch and watch some telly.

Take care

Hi Becs, Liam & Ashleigh
Hope you are enjoying being back at school Liam and you are feeling a bit better.
Aunty Moy & Cousin Bex are over in London and soon we’ll fly down to Spain to see Cousin Luke. Then we’re going to do a big driving holiday around Spain and Portugal (country next to Spain). Watch out for the postcards in the mail!
Love you all lots
