LIAM'S JOURNEY

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 279 – 20th January 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 8:27 pm on Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Liam, Ashleigh and I went into Wellington Hospital for bloods to be taken today.  He was a very brave little soldier, and only had a very small panic attack just before the needle went in, but allowed them to take three vials of blood.  These are being sent to Australia to identify whether or not he tests positive for a certain gene.  If he is positive then further tests will be done on his colon, and Ashleigh will also be tested to see if she is positive.  If she is then it is all about preventative measures, and then we will start to look at the wider immediate family.  These tests really could open a bit of a can of worms.

Liam has a fair bit of anxiety stored up which bubbles to the surface every now and then.  I found him in the bathroom on Saturday with what appeared to be a blood clot that had come from his eye.  When he saw me he started to cry which made the blood come from his eye, and was terrified that he would have to go back to hospital.  Once we cleaned him up I realised that it wasn’t anything major, I initially thought it was just the tube falling out, but I’m not sure.  I am certainly not concerned as his eye is not infected, not bothering him and looks great.  It did however bring home just how much the poor wee buggar has been through over the past 9 months.

Looking to the future, he is having a CT scan scheduled shortly and when that comes back clear (power of positive thinking!) I will give the blog writing a bit of a break as I will have nothing to report, but you can still follow our progress on the funrazor site.

Very good site you have here but I was curious if you
knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here?

I’d really love to be a part of online community where I
