What a lovely lunch we had! Nanna spoilt us rotten by making a roast with all the trimmings! It was a thanks giving lunch to thank each other for all the support and love and prayers and being there for each other and most of all to thank Our Lord for getting us to this point and that Deqlan has responded well to the chemo so far!
Deqlan was tugging on his ear on Friday, Nanna had a look with the machine she has and said they where indeed red and we eventually got a doctor at our local gp to agree to come out to the car ( we are not willing to take him into a doctors rooms or hospital due to his immune system) What a lovely Doc it was , she had already wiped everything with alcohol and was so willing to chck his ears for us - turns out he has a middle ear infection and needed an antibiotic. Doc called Dr De Jager to make sure it was ok to give antibiotics which he agreed to - we are so glad we didnt leave it - he is still tugging on it a bit , but not moaning at all - so praying it will just continue to heal and get better!
We had a lovely service at church last night and we are blow away at he amount of people who come up to us and ask about Deqlan. One lady , we does promos etc for Kellogs, told us that a 15 year old boy had won a competition and won a huge character soft toy of"pop" and he wanted her to give the teddy to a sick little boy - and guess who they chose!! What amazing children we have in this world - we hope to put a picture up asap ! We are so greatful Gilliad Lebanon for this gorgeous teddy and hope to be in touch soon with you to thank you personally!
Please can we ask you all for your prayers for our third round of chemo tommorow till tuesday evening - please pray that we still continue to have the amazing effect it has had so far and that Deqlan continues to have no side affects
Praise and rejoice in Our Lord - he is great and I know he is healing Deqlan as i type this!
Nanna will try and type a more detailed blog and update tommorow from room 23 from Little Company of Mary!
God Bless and Lots of Love to you all
Mark, Samm & Deqlan
ps - Happy Birthday Gran for tommorow ! Have a lovely day and we thank you and Uncle Henk for all your love and support and continued prayers
