...the results are in ...COMPARED WITH THE PREVIOUS STUDY PERFORMED ON 25/05/2007, THE TUMOR HAS SIGNIFICANTLY DECREASED IN SIZE!!!!!!!!!!!!! PRAISE OUR HEAVENLY FAITHER ALL THE GLORY TO HIM - THANK YOU OUR LORD AND SAVIOR
I AM ELATED, I AM ON TOP OF THE WORLD, I AM SO GRATEFUL - OUR LORD CONTINUES TO HEAL DEQLAN - I FEEL LIKE SINGING AND SHOUTING AT THE TOP OF MY VOICE - REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS AND AGAIN I SAY REJOICE
I AM SO SO SO SO PROUD OF MY STRONG SOLDIER - YOU ARE AMAZING MY BOY, YOU ARE MY HERO, MY INSPIRATION MY EVERYTHING
Dr De Jager has just given us this FATASTIC NEWS! The scans definitely show a decrease in the main tumor on the adrenal gland ! There is no soft tissue mass lesions in the left orbit!!!! This means that there is no more cancer present in the bone of the eye socket !!!! Praise Our Lord!!!! I can not explain my elation to you all ! Deqlans eye lid still appears swolen and the eye is not completely back into its normal position but this will improve as the bone remoulds and reforms as it regains its original structure. There is no more mention of lesions in the sinus ( which there were on the last report) No other lesions or mases anywhere else in the head or abdomen!!!!! Unfortunately this scan was not able to give us any more clues on the cancer infiltration that was orginally found in the bones, we will have to wait for end of the chemo rounds for another MIBG scan to confirm. But Dr De Jager says that we can only deduce that there is a grat improvement there to , due to the eye mass disapearing and the main tumor decreasing!!!!!!
The main tumor is around blood vessels though so now we ask for additional prayers that the chemo continues to shrink the tumor so much that it disapears from the blood vessels . Their is also a possibility that the remainder of the tumor could be dead by the time we have surgery and therefore we would just need to keep a very close eye on it. If they could not remove the entire tumor during surgery we would then look at the option of radiation after the surgery - this will only be confirmed / thought about after the sugery
So plan is continue with the further 6 rounds of chemo ( only 3 more hospital stays, the last 3 are day visits!!!!) When Deqlan hits 1 year or 12kg ( we far from that at the moment) the dose will increase by +-25% - we expect the surgery round the end of October - So please Dear Lord - Deqlan can be in top form for his delayed 1st Birthday party, Christmas and the arrival of his cousin in Feb!!! Hooray!
Thank you all for your continued support, love and prayers - we have the best army be could ever hope for with us with Our Lord leading the way! AMEN!!!!
Deqlan continues to be happy and full of smiles and even more active each day - he just wants to go - run and walk and jump and he even tried to swing from the oxygen pipe above his bed yesterday - he makes me laugh! The best medicine in the world for my soul!
Hope to post some new pictures soon!
Please continue to pray for our gorgeous boy and for all his friends that need your prayers just as much!
God Bless and all my love and thanks in the world
