Just Seven More Treatments.

Tuesday, 25 June 2013

Hello everyone
Mums been showing me the schools blog I’ve seen the parents and teachers doing Zumba it looks fun but mum said its hard she can’t Zumba. Can’t wait to have a look at the t-shirt Alex designed I think it will be so cool.

The treatments continue.

I’ve just gone to the UF hospital for today’s treatment (24 June). I’ve only got 7 more treatments left and will be back soon. I’m still doing fine.

Missing you all keep in touch Aaron

Healthy Day for both schools

Monday, 24 June 2013

On our Healthy Day, all of our activities here and at Exhall Grange were about making healthy choices. Pupils had the opportunity to dance, cook and prepare fruit and food,  sing, play instruments and exercise. They all looked like they had a great time.

Zumbathon 23rd June

Sunday, 23 June 2013

Starts at Ash Green School from 2 o’clock. There will be a number of ladies and perhaps a few gents, joining together for a two hour session of Zumba. Some will be looking forward to a great reason to do some exercise, others like me will be there to support a good cause and hoping just to get through it. Watch this space for further news and photos. Look out for the special t-shirt logo designed by Alex.

Many thanks to all who turned up to support us, we raised between us all an amazing  £331.

A big thankyou also to Michelle King, Matt Print, Debbie Grant and Claire Adey who led the sessions, they were all brilliant.

15 Treatments to go!

Friday, 14 June 2013

Hello everyone
Hope you all have enjoyed the sunshine over the past week.
We had a tropical storm last week the rain was fun.

I’ve been to the proton centre today. I call it the uf hospital, it’s my favourite hospital it’s so nice.
I have my own bed that I go in everyday and two ladies look after me called Gina and Kendra.
Today I’m half way through my treatment only 15 more times left. I’m feeling okay but I do get tired when I have too walk far so mum got me a wheelchair and Haydn pushes me which is fun.
My hair has started to full out a bit but that’s okay.

I’m missing school and all my friends.
I’m counting down the days till we go home. its 4 weeks and 4 days.

Aaron was really excited today (03/06/2013) when we checked the mail box, he had post!

Aaron enjoyed reading and looking all the fantastic cards his class had made him. Thank you for all the kind wishes you sent. Aaron loves all the cards and has put them up in his bedroom so he can look at them everyday and remember all his friends at school.

Aaron’s Treatment

Sunday, 2 June 2013

After a long 23 hours journey we made if safely to Jacksonville Florida. We have been here for 4 weeks now and Aaron is counting down the weeks till he goes home.
Aaron has had lots of appointments with the doctors over the past weeks. They made Aaron’s special mask which he has to wear when he has his treatment to keep his head still.
The doctors say Aaron will have to go in the special machine 30 times.

Treatment started on Monday 20th May at 3.15 that’s 8.15pm to you as we are 5 hours behind you at home. The doctors put Aaron to sleep for his treatment because trying to keep still at the age of 7 is hard.
Aaron is doing very well and is able to go back to the apartment once he wakes up.

9 treatments done only 21 to go.
