    Ngā mihi nui rawa Kia Koutou kātoa!!

    Thank you whānau for all your aroha for our baby Te Huringa o Ngā Tai (Wiki).

    No words could ever express our gratitude to you all.

    So we are currently in the first phase of treatment, our baby went from a skinny 14.7kg baby to a now borderline 19kg tank of a toddler in less than 4 weeks due to the steroids.

    At the moment we are in Starship as he has an infection but fingers crossed we will be transferred back to the Ronald McDonald house as soon as he is able to.

    At this point he has no immune system so keeping him healthy is our main priority until his bone marrow is able to create white blood cells (the infection fighting cells) to fight off different infections on his own. This should happen in the next couple of weeks. Let’s hope and pray that he goes into remission … fingers crossed!

    After that we start phase 2 where he will be on more intensive chemotherapy, which means his hair will start falling out or thinning 😭. We will be living in isolation for the next 6-9months to keep all the bugs and germs away which includes our tamariki being home-schooled (Wish us luck lol)..

    As we progress I will continue to update everyone!

    Tēnei rā te mihi maioha ki a Koutou kātoa.

    Nā mātou te whānau o Te Huringa o Ngā Tai (Wiki)
