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 28

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 8:17 pm on Saturday, May 17, 2008

A very quiet couple of days for us.  Liam has been happy enough at school and not doing himself too many injuries.  He lost another tooth about 5.31am yesterday and of course had to come running in and wake me up to show me.  It was one of the ones on the side where the tumour is, so not sure if it was ready to come out or if the tumour has pushed it out.  Either way his mouth looks a little bit creepy now as you can see the tumour alot clearer.

 Coco is settling into a routine well (sorry Fashion Aunty Amy not named after Coco Chanel but after Budget brand Coco Pops!!!), she is finally figuring out that the carpet is not for going toilet on.  She is so lucky she is cute otherwise she would have ended up as a mop by now. 

We have spent today painting and shifting firewood so the bodies are a tad sore, and we are now sitting relaxing with a nice glass of wine and a beer watching the rugby.  We have a family lunch in Waikanae tomorrow and Aunty Jo and the beautiful Molly and Maddie are up from Christchurch as it is two years since we lost Matt on Monday, so will have a couple of quiet ones for him then too.

Take care

Becs and co.
