My New Years ...... The unfolding drama

Saturday 29th December 2007
Cody woke up and mentioned that he didn't feel so good. He had a head ache and he was starting to get a temp. Later that morning his temp started to climb, his head ache got worse and his legs started to ache. He went to the A & E and they took bloods to check if he had an infection. As his mother tried to point out to them.......last time the infection took a while to culture and that she wanted to stay. But due to the bloods coming back clear, the hospital sent Cody home. His mum kept a very close eye on him and was not at all surprised when she received a phone call at 1am Sunday morning saying that his bloods had come back and there was a bug in his hicman line and in his blood. So Cody was bundled up to the A & E were he and his mum had to wait for 2 hours until they were finally admitted to the ward. That night Cody's temp spiked at 40 deg and he was vomiting badly. Lucky for Cody he is a fighter and by 10am Sunday the Antibiotics were starting to work and Cody started feeling much better. Even so Cody settled in expecting to be in hospital for a couple of days at least.

Due to a nasty strain of Nova Virus in the wards it was decided it would be safer for Cody to be at home, so later on Monday Cody was released.

Infection is Cody's worst enemy at present. Next hurdle for Cody is an operation on Jan 10th (if it still goes ahead after this) Will fill you in on the next post.

Cody,

I don't know you but from what I have read you sound like an amazing individual. You are obviously a fighter, to have endured so much and still have such strength and determination. I don't know if you or your family believe in God, but I intend to pray for you and your family and for all that you will have to face in the coming year. I will pray also that the funding that you need for your operation will be able to be found as soon as possible.

Hi Cody, have been following your story since the day your Dad mentioned it on TM. I wish you all the love and support I have to spare. Be like your name, in Maori - the mighty Kauri tree, tall and strong, weathering all the storms and standing uncomplaining, in the forest, living forever, while all round him activity scurries around, and staunchly quiet the Kauri, watching, waiting patiently and wise. Would love to meet you one day Cody, Kia Kaha and Arohanui XXXX Che'z and Sophie XXXX

hey there, just spotted this on the TM page:
Cody - maybe we can help...
OK, admittedly I am a tad backward when it comes to blogs etc. But can somebody get a message to Cody and his family to call Hayley McLarin (me) at New Idea magazine on Tuesday on 09 979 2726 ... maybe we can do a story and help raise awareness and some $$$
