And the bad news......

Tomorrow Ellie begins chemotherapy for the third time. Dr. Capra called last week with the bad news, the tumour has increased in bulkiness.
Ellie isn't happy,  none of us are but we don't have much of a choice really.

More to follow in the coming days.

Christmas 2015

Well 52 weeks of chemotheraphy done. Ellie only missed one out of the fifty two.
Three MRIs also done. Dr. Capra has given Ellie a positive result so Freddie can come out on December 18th.
Roll on Christmas.

Here are a few photos of Ellie, Olly and Cara. Unfortunately Gus died a few weeks ago after being struck by a car.
He was a great friend to Ellie and she loved him millions. I know Gus is taking care of Ellie from heaven.

Ellie had an MRI last Friday and we got the results this afternoon.
Its a positive result and we can all relax and enjoy Summer 2015.
Ellies auntie April and uncle Glen had a baby girl yesterday. They named herErin  Rose and she is beautiful. I will put up a photo of her in the next post.
Dad has a cold beer to celebrate.

Summer 2015 is finally here

Summer is here and the suns come out to play. We had a little holiday in Rosslare last week. We got a nice house about 1km from the beach. We spent lots of time on the beach walking and sun bathing. We also went to the cinema and ten pin bowling. Sarah came along too and the three girls had a great time. 
We had to come home a couple of days early for treatment, but we were just happy to get a few days away. 

Ellie finishes school for the summer tomorrow and looking forward to a few lie ins. She also has an important MRI later this week so hopefully the results are positive.

Sunny May

Ellie is doing well at the moment. She was unwell for a few weeks recently, missed a lot of school and didnt see much of her friends. Thankfully she is doing well now and is looking forward to finishing school in a few weeks for the long summer break.

Feb 2015

Ellies is doing great these days. 
As Ellie cannot continue her swimming classes she has recently joined a local Hip Hop group. She really enjoys it and has made a few new friends. 
We recently had a visit from Faith, Merv and Karen all the way from Virginia. We had a lovely weekend walking around Dublin City, Ellie and Faith got on brilliantly.
