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 97

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 4:50 pm on Monday, July 28, 2008

Liam had his CT scan today over at Hutt Hospital.  I picked him up from school at 12.30, slapped some emla on both arms (numbing cream) and headed off.  He was a little bit anxious about being jabbed yet again, but wasn’t doing to bad on the nerves side. 

We were called in a short time after arrival and the nurse asked Liam if he had had a scan before to which he answered “yes, do I have to have a needle?” When the nurse said no, he did a sort of a jig and jumped up onto the bed faster than I have ever seen him move, and with a smile on his face!  I was then sent from the room as they don’t want me to be zapped by the xray beams too many times and will keep my presence for when it is needed.  I sat out in the waiting room while Liam coped on his own, and by god did he cope!  He took it in his stride and wasn’t fazed at all.  The nurse said he was fantastic and stayed as still as a statue.  Very impressed.

The results of the scan will be sent to Charles Davis, and we will discuss them with him on Wednesday.  I have just realised that Wednesday is going to be day 99 in the journey since beginning this blog and we are finally going to have a treatment plan to discuss.  Amazing really. 

Will sign off now and go make some dinner to the sounds of Ashleigh on sing star singing, “Heaven is a place on earth”, and let me tell you there are not a lot of angelic sounds coming out of the room! 

Take care all – will update on Wednesday with treatment plan.
