Hi Leigh and Rory. Good news to hear you might head north soon. You are both so strong and brave. I have a girl in my class who has had a shunt in her head since she was born and man, is she like you , brave and gives everything a go including surfing, rock climbing and and sailing at our school camps. You will be back doing these sort of things with your school mates soon. Best wishes and healing thoughts to you all. Julie

Hi Rory,  How are things going, it is cool you have made it to Ronald McDonald's house.  Have you been on the playground yet because it looks fun.  It was cool seeing you in the weekend.  I have a joke for you - Why did the orange cross the road?  To play squash.
I've decided to dress up as a Rockstar, for Rory day at school.  I'm going to spike my hair up at the front and put on long jeans with shorts underneath and a cool Tshirt with my black leather jacket, and take my drum sticks.  Hope you are feeling better, and hope you come home on Friday.
Love Zack

way to go Rory with getting to go to Ronald McD house!  Hope those IVs do the trick and that shunt (always makes me think of trains...) keeps things moving right along ....going home sounds fantastic and it is great to know that each day it gets closer!
We are soggy here - lots of rain - rained off the first day of netball on Saturday - poor kids - i am coaching them tho so i don't know if they stand much of a chance of getting too many wins!
know that i am sending you love and healing and thoughts of good things - keep being so strong Rory, Leigh, Sean and Sam.
