Pads was remarkably keen to go North - he's been positive about it every time a whiff of the possibility comes up in conversation. With recent events, we were keeping it all very flexible. On Wednesday the medical team recommended us to go, given that we had all the drugs we needed and the whole family stood to benefit. In the event, Padi not only managed the journey really well but came alive and stayed that way until very late in the day. He was very keen to get his hands on Caleb's wood-kit sculpture. Caleb was happy because he'd hit a bit of a wall with it - progress became almost too rapid for him!
Simple but often quite offensive question. Why here/now? Because everyone needs to be saved and while you are still able to read this and before you sleep tonight you need to ensure you are at peace with your Maker through the Lord Jesus Christ Best place to start with this is on your knees and a copy of John's gospel (get a copy of John's Gospel)
Since August 2008 I've mainly used this blog to share updates about Pads and life with chemo after he was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma.
I can occasionally be seen here. I know it's a terrible picture but there arent many good ones with me aged >6
