Mommy Samm was feeling and looking a little better today, but her pallor reflected her fatigue. Being the outstanding Mommy she is, she swiftly dealt with the pending upper respiratory tract infection yesterday by seeking urgent medical attention - an imperative action to limit any risk of cross-infection for Deqlan. Now Mommy, (just like Meggie, Grandpa and Nanna always do) had to give our Deqlan kisses on his head today. The beautiful baby smell of his hair is positively addictive and when one holds him, it is almost irrestible to NOT kiss him.
Today, Samm found out that she has the same blood group as Deqlan (A positive) and was immediately considering donating blood for the transfusion we are expecting Deqlan to need during his next chemo session. A mother's sacrifice knows no boundaries, despite Samm herself having extremely low blood pressure with a history of anaemia. Such is the love of this mother for her son. Mommy Samm is taking her medicine (and with Nanna as the proverbial "watchdog") and is doing "all the right things" to get well as quickly as possible. Samm is our "miracle Mom" and her commitment as a wife and mother is also demonstrated in her able management of the busy travel agency. Please say an extra special prayer for her quick and full recovery and that God may richly bless her so that she continues to be the best possible wife to Mark, Mother to Deqlan and a blessing to others.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, we ask that you embrace our treasured Samm and fill her with Your love, strength, peace, courage, faith and hope to effect her recovery. And Lord, always let her know how much she is loved by us.
