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 259 – 1st January 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 3:56 pm on Thursday, January 1, 2009

Well talk about seeing in 2009 in style.  We had Jaspers family up for a BBQ on a beautiful Kapiti Coast day.  We dragged out the singstar 80’s and after a few drinks I thought I was singing remarkably well, and no girls it doesn’t have the Gambler on it, however we did do a rendition in the spa pool a bit later in the evening!  We had a very late night (or early morning, depending on how you look at 5am) but I got up at about 9 with the kids and jumped on our bikes to ride around to let my sisters dogs out.  We then all sat on the deck soaking up the sun and spent the other half of the day down at the Waikanae pools.  We have now all hit the wall and will go get some fish and chips shortly and have a very early night.

For your information Shanell has set up a new blog for everyone to follow our fundraising journey to the funrazor later this year.  The link is so please add it to your favourites and pass it on to everyone that you know. 

Our only upcoming scheduled appointment is in a couple of weeks to the orthotics centre, but I will be taking Liam to our local GP next week as he has a nasty case of what I thought was athletes foot on both feet, but nothing I seem to treat it with seems to be clearing it up, so I think I need to seek some professional advice!  Other than that he is a fit and healthy little boy who is excited because today he can say “I’m going to be 10 next year!” and this morning “I haven’t eaten all year” and lately “I haven’t had a shower at all this year”

I am positive this year is going to bring good things to our family, and Liam is going to go from strength to strength.  Happy New Year to you all
