One of Lil's special friends Alf has written a beautiful song for her called Lullaby. Please click here to listen.
YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE
The HUGE NEWS of the year is that Kahlilla's little friend, Bronte has won her battle against neuroblastoma.
Her tumour is still present but it has been declared to be all benign. This is such an beautiful thing to happen to an amazing little girl.
Bronte and her loving family have given so much hope to all NB kids around the world.
May you always be well little girl.
Please visit her site at this address...
Kahlilla was excused from chemo by her doctor, who needs her blood to be as strong as possible for the final
cycle of chemotherapy. In fact he has given her a 12 day reprieve!!!! Hmmmmm ..... What can we do .....Where can we go in
order to maximise this last minute gift of time with our exceptionally healthy girl??
Maybe ..... Lighthouse, camping, motorbikes..... Whatever we do, there will be fun and beautiful times.
Mum and Lill packed their things and headed for the hospital for what we
hope will be Kahlilla's final chemo..... EVER!!! She will be scanned at the end of this cycle, so we once again trust to hope that this will
all be over and Kahlilla will be declared to be in remission once again.
Home again after a brilliant snow holiday with our good friends Craig, Jenny, Tex and Xander.
Happy Ski Girl.
Removing the skis for a rest.

Enjoying the mountains from afar
We are half way through our ski holiday and we are having such excellent times.
We stopped at Rod and Kerry's farm on the way to the snow.
Lill loved their horses and bottle feeding the newborn calves.
Kahlilla was so thrilled to see the snow again.
We hired our skis in the evening, but Lill could not wait for the next day to try them out .
Lill spent the morning at kindi ski school and she was most disappointed when the kids were taken indoors to read a book!
"I just want to ski" protested Lill. She was much happier cruising about the slopes.
Kahlilla showing Mum how it is done
It was Indigo's first time on skis and she took to it very quickly and was soon skiing very quickly also...... Crazy kids.
More happy days for our Lilly, who is getting more and more healthy,
avoiding hospitals and having loads of fun.
Kahlilla met Indi at her school on the day when the chicken pox exposure period was over.
They were thrilled to see each other after a long time apart.
It was time for bed and too late to get out the game of Twister, so
A beautiful group photo
A beautiful group hug
Buried in Beanie Kids
Lill spent a beautiful weekend with her Nan and Pop. The highlight being a ride
on the Puffing Billy, an old steam train that runs through the hills just outside of Melbourne.

Beautiful days for Kahlilla. The only thing wrong has been that Indi has
been exposed to Chicken Pox, so Lill can't see her sister for 2-3 weeks.
Lill and her Mum adoring each other
Lilly has been busy cramming everything in to each day.
Lill started attending 4 year old kindy once again
The early evenings have been spent on the beach flying kites in the gusty winds

This morning's finger prick should reveal a healthy enough level of white blood cells to
enable a release from hospital!!!
Kahlilla is going along very well indeed. Her white blood cells have made an appearance
but her platelets are still depleted. Kahlilla is however, so full of energy and happiness.
Lill had a visit from her friend Prue and they played and played together for ages.

Kahlilla had a visit from the "Make a Wish" fairies today and she told them all
about her 2 wishes:
1. A Fairy Cubby House in her garden at home
2. Another holiday to Fraser Island
Lilly and the Fairies
Kahlilla is bearing up well in hospital, despite her lack of energy due to her lack of
white blood cells and platelets.
Crazy tube girl
Thrilled at her improved nursing skills
A very king man brought some yummy bread into the hospital for the kids.
Pets are not allowed in the hospital but toy dogs that walk and yap are welcome
Lill won a pink hat in a competition on the hospaital TV ... It was very exciting
And of course there was the new pet snake to be fed.... with a Play Doh mouse!!
