Kia ora everybody,
I wish I was sending this update on a happy note.
David has had a relapse.Same leg just above were the other lump was.We found the lump about 4 weeks ago,had scans last week got results today.
The bloody Cancer now has travelled to his lungs.  David has options.We have decided that David is old enough to to decide what to do,treatment or not,quailty or quanty.
I'm glad I took my friend Kathy with me cause my world just crumbled and there was jack shit nothing I could do.
David asked me to leave our meeting because I was telling the doctor that she had the wrong results and they were someone elses and that I wanted David to have scans done again,told her that i'm taking David to Aussie for more answers but in my heart I wanted her to be wrong and I knew she wasnt' and for the first time my son David shared a tear.That was my fault because his mother flipped out really bad.I'm glad I asked Penny and Mata from CanTeen to come along,they sat with David and the doctor for us.
David is good in himself and you all know how strong David is.Like David said in his story in the CanTeen book last year
      When your gone your gone and that's it.
David just wants to get on with life,get his 40credits at school and start his career in cooking,be a teenager,bug his mother like crazy and grab life by the balls and run with it.David still has alot of life inside of him and going on from what we got told last year ,we will still have David for a few years yet and hope that it may turn into 10 or even 20,only god know's.
Well thats all for now,i'm feeling very tired and drained.Will do another update next week. sorry for the spelling mistakes.
Love Alma

You be pleased girls that you don't have to lose your hair today in the South Island. It is about 4 degrees. Take care and hope all your journeys are o.k

Well this just isnt right. No child no matter how young or old deserves this! Actually no one deserves to be hurt by cancer (victim or family) Be strong and know that all of us through this journal are next to you. Draw strength from us. I am so glad that you have the other families through child cancer and canteen to also support you. Please let David know that we are all thinking of him to.
