    After 3 nights last week at Ronald Mcdonald House we were given the green light to head home to Hokitika.

    So very grateful to each and every one who have helped our family over the past 2 months to get to this stage.

    So very happy to have had Christmas Day at home and a break before we ready ourselves to face the ongoing appointments and future surgeries.

    Thank you all so very much.

    After 7 weeks and 16 trips to theatre our time at Middlemore Hospital has come to an end (for now) and we are back in Christchurch Hospital.

    So happy to be closer to home for the next phase of Louie's recovery.

    Once again we are so so grateful to each and every one of you for all your kindness and generosity.

      So very happy to know Louie is in Chch and hence closer to home. What an extremely brave young man and my admiration of him couldn’t be higher. - I wish Louie and his family an especially wonderful Christmas with special thoughts and wishes to Louie for the coming year and ongoing healing. 💕

    As the journey in Middlemore Hospital continues we would like to start with sharing some positive news:

    There has been no damage to his beautiful eyes and his vision ❤️

    He is now able to talk ❤️

    He has started eating small amounts of food ❤️

    He has started light physio❤️

    After 2 more minor surgeries this week and assessment by the plastics team our precious boy will be now reserving all his energy for a major 7 hour surgery scheduled in 10 days with dressing changes and checks along the way.

    Again we would like to express our gratitude to everyone who is thinking of us at this time.

    Another massive week for our wee guy,Surgery number six on Monday uncovered some issues which means the progress will be slower than first thought.The set back means the family will be at Middlemore Hospital alot longer than was first expected.

    Today was surgery number 7 and our little darling is now resting in preparation for surgery number 8 on Monday.

    We are so very grateful to all who have contributed to the fund,our family, friends and strangers alike and just knowing we are in people's thoughts keeps us going❤️
