Hi there Rory and Leigh, crikey the post works fast!  Korie has gone to bed but he wanted me to send Rory this joke he read in a joke book today, so here goes, What's big, red and prickly, has three eyes and eats rocks?  A big, red, prickly, three eyed rock-eater! lol Is it just our silly sense of humour or is it a funny joke?  Not sure about that one but we all had a giggle when Korie read it out to us!  Safe travels home tomorrow Love Kathryn xox

Living in New Plymouth away from our much lvoed daughter Leigh, her partner Sean, and our precious grandsons Rory and Sam has been very hard in their time of need.  Leigh has kept us informed of all the messages, help and support that they have received from so many people, whether they be family, friends, workmates, school, community, medical staff or people unknown to them.  We are so thankful, appreciative and overwhelmed for such kindness shown towards our daughter and her family that we would personally and sincerely like to say "thank you so much everyone".

Well Hello there!  Sounds like you have had another action packed day!  Kody and Ben enjoyed Motat, did you have a ride on the tram?  I am sure your Grandparents enjoyed every minute of it!  Hopefully the itching will stop soon.  You can always grow some more hair later!  and maybe (like you cousins said) it might grow back curly!!!! (then we will know if you have been eating your greens!)  So take care rest well and give Mum a BIG hug from Me please! (Oh go on, one for you too!) Love  Trudi xxxxx

Hey Rory, Sean, Leigh and Sam,  Just a brief note to say Hi and let you know again that Uncle Hami and Aunty Hilary send their love and good wishes.  They don't have a computer to see all the wonderful photos etc on your website.  I now print-out all the updates for them to read.  Isn't that awesome!  They are sooooo keen to know how you are all doing!!!  Just so you know Uncle Hami is 81 years young and Aunty Hilary is nearly 79 years young.  So we all have a long way to go to catchup to them....ha ha.  Last of all, I heard another funny knock knock joke.  Here it is:  Knock Knock.....Who's there?.....Snow.....Snow Who?.....Snow use, I can't remember!!!!!  Take Care!

hi guys, thought it was time for another message from all us n the naki - we are still in one piece not too blown away by the cold blustery winds,and all the snow on the mountain was very close to our house but not quite to our doorstep this time - not too far away tho i dont think - we hope to get snowmen on the deck this winter again - fingers crossed from logan.  Not great to hear that you have hair falling out eh rory - but that means the medicine is getting in and doing some good work to fight the greebies eh!!!  just a thought maybe we could get logan to have a haircut and we could save the huge mop and stick it to a hat for you - those really long curly blonde bits should look very funny indeed on you!!! and it would be half way down your back i should think, - not that logan would look at having a haircut really - he hasnt had one now for at least a year and a half ( and that is probably only a guess it maybe been longer than that - yikes what a ling time eh!!!) but hey yours will grow back soon enough and maybe you could grow back some curls for logan to have a cousin with curls too!!! now that would look funny.  Well mikayla still has no hair yet or still only a very fine dusting so the race will be on with you two to see who can get hair to grow the quickest - bet you can beat her with that rory!! take care everyone - till next time lots of love jason wendy logan and mikayla

Hi guys, even though my boys haven't met you, they know enough about you that you are mentioned often in our house. Ethan wants you to have hundreds and thousands sandwiches for Breakfast, I think I will let him organise that. Thank you for sharing EVERYTHING with us, it can't be easy to experience, let alone write about it. For me, I experienced something similar with my sister and it has brought home to me how little we discussed the whole situation. It is sooo important to tell people. Thank you. Brenda

Kathryn and Korie ( Dargaville )

Morning Leigh and Rory, I have just finnished reading yesterdays update and was totally overwhelmed when I realised how you and your family have impacted on my own little family unit.  Your words, strength and determination have created a ripple effect and touched so many who have united to fight for Rorys life.  With every day that passes I am greatful for so much I had previously taken for granted, my children being at the top of that list.  You are an inspiration Leigh, love from Kathryn and Korie - who is home with me today with another cold and is on the couch playing playstation! xox
