Believe in Magic- The Matt Hollywood Show!

Our Matt Hollywood show was a Huge Success! Thank you to the hundreds of people that attended- Most of you I hadn't met before!

Matt Hollywood performed 3 Grand Illusion Magic Shows and we could not believe our eyes... Yes Matt really did levitate an audience member and as you can see he isn't using a fake leg.... He was also amazingly funny and a genuinely nice person.
 We couldn't have asked for a more perfect entertainer or theme. Let's just hope that some Matt Hollywood magic has rubbed off on me... it is time to get back into my therapies full time and I hope to progress in leaps and bounds!

Officeworks BBQ Results

We have been so busy that we have't had time to calculate the money we raised form the officeworks BBQ on 26th June.
Well finally we have the tally!


Thanks to all the very kind people who gave up their day to help cook and run the BBQs.
All the money raised will help me get therapies and equipment that I would normally not be able to have.

Help Wanted

A few months ago I was visited by Chad Timmermans from the Australian Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential - AIAHP. Chad assessed my skills and abilities and wrote me a special exercise programme to follow. It is designed just for me, to help me reach the next level of development. I eventually need to do atleast 4 hours of exercises per day as well as all the other specialist visits and alternative therapies that are good for me. Some of the exercises only need one person, some need two and there is one extremely important exercise that needs 3 people to move me together. If you ever have some spare time and would like to help me please let me know. I would be very grateful for your help! These exercises are an essential part of my rehabilitation but it takes up so much time that Mum and Dad really need some help!

I will write more about Chad and the exercises that I need to do but in the mean time if you would like to know more the AIAHP website is

My Nasal Gastric Tube

This is my brother Corey and me!

Last week I spent a few days in hospital being fitted with a NGT - Nasal Gastric Tube. I am fed through this tube for 10 hours every night, not because I can't eat... because I can... but because I need lots more calories than other children to help me to grow. The doctors have given me a special formula that has 1 calorie per ml. It made me sick for the first few days until they got the dose right. At the moment I am at 27 mls per hour so 270mls per night.
It is a pain and not nice to have, it irritates me and makes it harder for me to eat. But it is lots better than having a permanent one through my belly. Hopefully I won't have to have it in for long if it makes my weight rise faster. I need to put on about 3 kilos... I will keep you all posted :)
