Not your typical Sunday afternoon!!!

Today started off as a typical lazy Sunday, however it soon brightened up when we got a call to say John Hartson (ex Celtic and Wales footballing legend, and testicular cancer survivor) wanted to come and meet Oscar!  He was in Belfast today at a book signing, and to promote his foundation...

He was such a nice guy, and spent ages talking to us about Oscar and his treatment, as well as sharing his own experiences of fighting cancer.  He is now following Oscar on twitter @Wee_Oscar, and tweeted about him to all his followers!  The messages of support have been flying in since, and Oscar has gained almost 1000 followers in just a few hours!  Thanks again to John, and Seamus his driver for coming out of their way to see us!!


Poor wee Oscar is exhausted now after all the excitement, and is tucked up in bed asleep.  Hospital in the morning for blood checks, and whatever else tomorrow brings!
