Hi Rory and family. It was lovely catching up with you all yesterday. I do hope your operation went ahead today Rory; it is horrible having to wait so long especially when you are not allowed to eat anything!

Hi there Rory,
Spoke to Dad on the phone yesterday and got me up to date with the happenings.  You are the bravest, toughest little boy I know.  I read all the articles in the paper, the boys thought you looked cool.  We have just got back from Motakawanui Island after a scary boatride home, we were lucky to get home because of the weather.  Conor caught a big kahawai, and Zack got little snapper.  We saw a photo of you in the gallery at Motakawanui planting a tree with Dad.  With luck you may be home next weekend, otherwise we are coming down on Saturday to spend the weekend with you.  Let us know if there is something special you would really like.  Good luck for the operation, we think of you all daily.  Big hugs Leigh.
Love Kay

Hi Rory, I went fishing and got a fish!! Its the first fish I ever got!!  Mum and Dad cooked it up on the bbq for dinner and I had some but it wasn't that nice.  Im going out again with my Dad and great uncle and maybe Ill get another one.  Really wish we didn't live so far away so I could come visit.  Its cool you got to meet Ronald. Is he real big?

It gets harder and harder to know what to write to you. We all want the suffering for your family to just go away, but it doesn't. Just want that today goes according to plan. Rory, you are one awesome little boy, you have strengths in you that we all aspire to have. Lots of positive, strong vibes coming your way today.

 to see you are keeping the cheek up for the medical staff and tricking them and that you are getting a chance to ride a bike!  Willow has jsut learnt to ride one and we went to the Redwood forest in Rotorua 2 wks ago for the holidays - she even rode a little track there - lots of crashes and i think she scared any birds that were in the vicinity with her squeels but she did it...
you can do it too Rory - keep those bugs at bay!
love to Sam and Mum and Dad too
ps was pretty cool to see you in the paper here the other day!
