sunday, the 29th of July 2007

Its wonderful to be home! We arrived at home Saturday round lunch time, and it was all smiles as Deqlan woke up to hear and see his beloved doggies Shelby and Stuffy - he immidiately wanted to jump out my arms to get to them to love and play with them!

He also loved the sight of his playroom as i opened the door to put him down to crawl! being in hospital limits crawling and pulling himself up on things as we have to be so careful with the drip in the porto cath - so when he gets home we try and let him spend as much time on the floor as he wants

It was wonderful to go to church last night and report to everyone on the great results of the scans showing significent decrease in primary tumor and the mass in the eye gone!! Everyone is elated and shall continue to pray for our little soldier!

We spent most of the day resting and cleaning and de germing everything ( a weekly process to ensure we take most of the germs and bugs we may have picked up from the hospital away)

Seems like i have a little bit of a blocked nose again and Deqlan slight cough so hopefully will pass as the weather gets warmer

Mark went to see Logan today with Granny and we hear she is getting so big and doing well at school - we really miss her, i cant wait to see her again - Im sure she feels the same about seeing Deqlan, they just love each other so much and connected from the first day they met!

Looking forward to a week in our normal routine again, and with no neupogen injections this time ! Yay! But we will definitely need these after our next round of Carboplatin as this really hits the bone marrow and we got to guard Deqlans immune system even more then we have been

Our friend Koketso was in hospital with us, but not for his chemo, he has no neutrophils, no immune system and picked up a bug in his blood, so he is battling to get well at the moment - please say a special prayer for him to that he gets better asap!

Please also pray for our friends Keira and Charli as they have follow up scans on 1 August - pray for fantstic results for them to

Have a lovely week thanks again for all the prayers , we so appreciate them
All our Love
Mark, Samm & Deqlan

Mark, Samm & Deqlan,
WHAT WONDERFUL NEWS!! We just read about the scan results and are elated to hear that you are all home again. We wanted to drop you a note to let you know that Kate threw a lucky penny into the fountain at the Minnesota zoo for Deqlan today. We wish and pray that chemo goes well leading to a very successful surgery in October (which is when we hope Kate will also have hers!)
Our hugs and prayers always,
Karen, Matt, Ryan and Kate Jacobs
