A Post From Liam

Life since we have been home has been busy with our usual craziness and Liam's continued care of physio and rest. Thanks to everyone who has been sending comments, notes, meals and their love. Liam wanted to let you know how he is doing so the rest of this post is dictated from him.

Hi everybody it is Liam. I am feeling better and getting stronger everyday. My head still jiggles with fluid and I have been bugging my mom by making it jiggle. She does not like this. Today, I went back to McMaster Children's hospital. I took another bible to the 3F clinic to leave in the waiting room because the last one I put there is gone! Yeah! Please pray with me that someone takes this one too. I also brought a special Life Application Bible for Dr. Singh. I wrote in the bible a note for her and I marked a special passage that reminds me of my surgery. I read her this passage from Mark 8:22-25,

"They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man's eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, "Do you see anything?" He looked up and said, "I see people; they look like trees walking around." Once more Jesus put his hands on the man's eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly."
I told her this reminded me that sometimes Jesus takes two times for stuff to get fixed. Jesus never says why that happens. Dr. Singh said she was going to photocopy the passage and post it in her office to remind her. Please pray that she will read more of the bible than just the part I showed her. I also gave her a batch of chocolate chip cookies that I baked with my dad and my brother and sister.
Dr. Singh said my head looked good and they did not have to take a needle and drain it again like they did last Friday. She decided to keep in my stitches until next Tuesday. I don't have to wear my big bandage around my head anymore and I am excited!
Thanks for commenting, my mom and dad show me what everyone says. Have a great day!


  1. Our family has been praying for you. It's nice to hear from you - glad you can take your bandage off.

    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

  2. Liam! I think you write just as good as your mom. You too can bring tears to our eyes and joy in our hearts all at the same time! You continue to teach each of us many lessons in life and I am so proud of you!! I will pray that Dr. Singh may read more of the Bible ou brought to her. I am sure without a doubt you have influenced her life just by being who you are. You are a very special young man who has been taught by very special parents and siblings!!

    Love you much!

    Cheri & Gerald

  3. Grandma and I are so blessed that God decided to place you, Daniel, Caroline, and Trinity Joy in our family. We are thrilled you are so excited and healing so well. We love you all (including Mom and Dad).

    We pray the Bible you placed in the 3F clinic will be gone soon too. And Liam, nothing goes better with chocolate chip cookies than a good book, and you gave Dr. Singh the best "Good Book" to read, so we pray she will enjoy both.

    See you soon.

    Grandpa Gerry & Grandma Cheryl

  4. So good to hear from you, Liam. We're still praying for you and your family in NC - sorry I haven't been able to comment much -- been very busy but have been checking in on updates and Michael has been letting me know how you're doing. *hugs*


  5. Hey Liam Lad:

    Glad to hear from you! You must feel so much better once they took the bandage off. You are an amazing young boy whom God is using to draw others close to him. I am sure that 2nd book will be gone in no time.
    Can't wait to see you at the Christmas Party.

    Liam! Its so good to hear from you! I'm glad to hear that you are healing well and that you are full of high spirits! I praise God that you didn't have to get another needle to drain the fluid! I know you don't care for needles, I myself really don't like getting them either! You are such a brave young boy! I pray that you continue to heal well and that you get all your strength back soon! I will be home in a couple of weeks and can't wait to give you and your family big hugs!!
    love you!!
    God Bless

    How amazing it is to be part of the body of Christ. We felt everyone's prayers. They certainly were answered. Hope was brave and have very few tears which was our prayer. Her surgery went well and she is home and recovering amazingly. The hard part now will be to keep her quiet for two weeks till the healing is done. It touched our hearts that you would take time to pray for us. Your story has helped us so much. Liam you are an Godly young man. Keep healing and keep relying on the Lord. He will never let you down. God bless you all.
