Congratulations, you have successfully completed the Proton level. Are you ready to enter the next level? Since Jessica got diagnosed, it feels like each day is another level completed in a computer game. We have jumped over obstacles, gained extra time, held our breath in anticipation and dodged this tumour. We will not be beaten. [...]

Jess only has five more treatment sessions left. We can all now finally see the light at the end of that tunnel. Well, kind of… Week eight has been very chilled for us all. The weather has been rubbish so we have just chilled out in our apartment and hung out with some of our [...]

Firstly, I would like to apologise for the delay of my weekly blog. It has been a very hectic week, as you will read below. Another week has been crossed off and Jess’ star chart at Proton is filling up. Our little girlie is half way there. What a great way to celebrate the half [...]

Are you having fun at Disney Jess?

With week three fast approaching I thought I better get blogging to all you folk back home. I really wouldn’t want you all getting withdrawal symptoms now would I? It must be bad enough without me being there in person as it is. Anyhow, as most of you know, we took the little lady to [...]

Thank God for modern technology (iPad 2), the wonders of YouTube plus the help from the beautiful Beyonce. With all those three things combined you get a very chilled out and happy little Jess.

The journey begins Stateside. We made it! After months of waiting for our date for Proton we finally made it. Now Jessica’s journey really begins. We had a really good flight. Jess was such an angel. Ben and I were dreading the flight with a 17 month old, but Jess proved us both wrong. She [...]
