Thursday, the 28th June 2007

hello all our wonderful family & friends
we come to you from the paediatric ward tonight as we have been moved here from icu
Deqlan in great condition, draining still clear and his vitals great , but unfortunately the doctor didnt come tonight so he still has his naso gastric tube in and we are hoping he comes early tommorow morning so we can start with fluids
another reason for the move was that i could also get a bed to sleep in as the nurses saw i got no sleep on the chair next to deqlan last night - so in one way glad we are both comfie tonight , but in another we wont get as much attention from the nurses here as they are alot more busy and the ratio of nurses to kids is more...but we trust Our Lord will give Deqlan a great and peaceful evening
i was ordered home today to sleep for an hour or two and take a shower and get some clean clothes - was lovely to be home for a bit but i missed Deqlan terribly - nanna watched Deqlan for us and had a ball singing and playing with him - he didnt cry at all - but as soon as mar and i arrived back he started crying ha ha ha
our laptop is going in for repairs tommorow and we are hoping to get it back over the weekend so if you dont hear from us you know its cause we dont have it back yet
looks like and we are hoping we can come home on saturday or maybe sunday - at least 1 night we hope before the 2nd round of chemo starts on monday 2 july
Deqlans eye is looking even better today and we are so Blessed to see this miracle happening right in front of our eyes - Our Lord is so great and he is listening to each and every single prayer we offer him
Please continue to pray for our beautiful boy whom we love and treasure and admire - he truly is our hero and i already look up to him in so many ways
We are so Blessed he chose us to be his parents - I thank God every day for this Blessing and I promise to be the best Mom I can be and to look after him the best way I know how
Good Night hope you are all well sleep tight and all our love to all of you
Mark, Samm &Deqlan

GOOD Morning,

Such a blessing to hear of Deqlan's wonderful progress!! My prayer today is for some time at home for your little family this weekend. (Free of tubes, machines or any discomfort for Deqlan), and some lovely rest in your own bed!

May God's healing in Deqlan's life continue to be evident day by day, until he is fully recovered.

Warm regards, Karen and family xx

Hi Mark, Samm and Deqlan

Such good news to hear that Deqlan is on the mend again. Our prayers are being answered, and Deqlan is proving to be one courageous warrior. Your updates are always so positive. We admire you guys more with each passing day. We will continue to pray for little Deqlan. Mia put her hands together in the car on Wednesday and asked Jesus to make Deqlan 'all better'. We love you guys loads. Our only wish at the moment is that we could be there to offer some support, but please know that you are in our thoughts 24/7!!!! Hope all continues to go well over the week-end and you all get the rest you deserve.
Love Don, Sam and Mia xxxx
