Six months down....!

Just a quick post to let you all know that we had the results from Meggie's last blood test and everything is still good! Yay!! That's 6 months in remission now! Awesome! Obviously we're still not "out of the woods" but we just try and take every day as it comes and it's so fantastic seeing Meg enjoying a normal life, parties, riding, dancing to Michael Jackson,fighting with her sister (well, that part isn't very enjoyable for Phil and I!) We're starting to gear up for Christmas, although I think it'll be quite a laid back and quiet time, which actually suits us fine. The weather has been really kind to us so far - only a couple of stinking hot days, so we're able to enjoy the sunshine and the ocean.

Last Friday we were asked to go back into the local radio station for a follow up interview. Meggie went dressed like Michael Jackson (her obsession is impressive!) They wanted to catch up with all the special kids that they're met over the year. Em and Sam Mac were pleased to see how well Meggie was looking and surprised to see that thick head of red hair!

Please spare a thought and prayers for Meggies little friend Evie who is back in battle with her cancer. She and her parents are having a really tough time at the moment, and we know how that feels. We were in the same boat this time last year and I can't find the words to explain how terrible it is.

Meggie has another CT scan and blood test on 16th December and then results on 23rd. Hoping and praying that things continue the way they have been and that everything is good. She's doing amazingly well - L O N G may it last....

Have a very Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2010!

Sending our love, light and prayers to Evie and her family. If there's anything that we can do - JANE say the word.

Wishing you all a wonderful, safe, healthy and happy Christmas.
