So things are going well for Niamh at the moment. We are all feeling positive and focussed (something thats always been a theme throughout this journey we're on). With that in mind and perhaps a sign that we are feeling a little more confident the further away from treatment we get, we have bitten the bullet and booked our US trip for October, we can't normally plan that far ahead but positive thinking that Niamh is doing well and that she'll get a clean bill of health at the post-treatment check-up at the Proton Center in Jacksonville, which is the reason for the trip in first place.
Paul being Paul has made a map ( that's how he rolls - it's strange I know. I'm used to it)
The bridal party travelled to the church in camper vans - Niamh loved that quirkiness.
Niamh and Paul's sister Helen en route to the church to fufil bridesmaid duties.
I say from then on all was fine (apart from the photographer asking me if I was Helen's mother......I'm four years older than her. Paul thought this was utterly hilarious). Also later on in the day Helen and I were perhaps slightly inebriated and maybe embarrassed Niamh slightly with our dance moves. I thought we were good personally. Niamh started off dancing with us and then after a minute or so she sat down, shaking her head in disbelief as Helen and I busted out the old school moves. I was highly amused watching Helen fist pumping to Erasure whilst wearing her bridesmaid dress. A lovely day was had by all.
In other news, Niamh and Conor both had excellent school reports. Niamh was somewhat perturbed by one of the comments that her homework for food technology was only "good" instead of "excellent" (like all the other subjects) because as far as she was aware, she hadn't had any homework for food technology so that was a mystery to her.
So, that's it for now - until next time folks
