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 11

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 5:22 pm on Wednesday, April 30, 2008

No news today unfortunately.  We will go visit the Doctors tomorrow afternoon and have a chat as it appears to me that the tumour is growing after staying pretty much the same over the last week.  Although I would desperately love to go home to await any results, I don’t think that would actually be in Liam’s best interests.

We saw the girls off at the airport this afternoon, and they arrived safely at Wellington.  Back here at Ronald McDonald things are a bit quiet without them as it is now just me, Jasper and Liam. 

Liam is going to go to his cousin Jack M’s house for the day tomorrow so they can spend some time doing boy things. 

Thats about all I have to report today, very quiet day, the weather has turned pretty sour-the southerly has come through and it is cold!  I am glad now that I have brought the thermals.  Yesterday it ws 23 degrees and today we would be lucky to hit double figures I reckon.  bbrrggghhhh……

hey Becs, Dad and Liam
what have you been up to since we have been gone? how are you coping without my beautiful voice? I bet it is a lot more quiet with only one child instead of five!!!!!i will be writing comments on the blog heaps so I know whats going on!the flight was very bumpy on the landing which made me feel a bit sick!the flight seemed a lot shorter than on the way down. I could see Dad waving from the deck but I dont know if he saw us waving back but we were waving our hands off.

love you all.

lots of love Jess (The middle child!)
