hi rory, sam, leigh and sean - wow another big day, not fair - and very scarey for you guys to have after all you have been through.  We were relieved and very happy to hear from you today letting us know rory was doing great and recovery was going well. We are just sending you guys all our love and just want things to heal quickly and the road to a full recovery can happen very soon.  Rory you have put up with so much little man - you are such a brave boy and we are very very proud of your fighting spirit and the hard work you are putting into your therapy and recovery.  All the hard work will make you get better and stronger every day - well done to you.  We are hopefully coming up to Auckland in the holidays - so logan will get his wish to visit you and we can all give you a big hug.  See you soon - keep up the good work - love from all of us. (PS - logan loves catching eels - when he reads your mums story tomoro he will laugh his head off imagining the eels peering out of the hospital fridge - ooh yuck!!!)

Hi guys, great to hear that the operation went well today and that everyone is feeling a little more relaxed. I know how that feels to wait for someone to come out of surgery ... and it takes longer for them to come out than they first tell you. And I agree with Greg, smoked eels are delicious, I think they go well with tomato sauce, don't they? I so like the picture of you and the spiderman pillow case, my two boys have them too. I hope that tomorrow is good for you. Thinkin of you all. Brenda C

Hey Rory, Great to read your op went well today. Thinking of you and your mum and dad and Sam often. You might want to tell Grandad where I live cos I am quite keen on them smoked ells as well. Perhaps I might come to Auckland and help you polish off the ones you have in the fridge, no need to wash our hands after, thats what white bed sheets are for!!! Happy healing thoughts from me, Tracy, Freya, Nikau and Matai.
