The weekend was wonderful - spent it in doors playing and sorting things out! We had visits from Nanna and Grandpa and Meggy and watched all our favourite DVDS !

Deqlan had his first proper bath i a month - it has been impossible to bath Deqlan as we where used to due to us being in hospital and due to the stitches or other areas we had to keep dry - he was a little unsure at first, but then LOVED every single second and smiled and laughed and kicked so much Nanna looked like she had had a bath to!

Nanna also has to give another 6 days of neupogen to help Deqlans bone marrow regenerate - he is actually so brave and only cries for a few seconds and then realises its not so sore after all..he is such a brave boy

On Sunday, was anointing of the sick at Great Grandpas church - we unfortunately could not attend as we are not allowed to take Deqlan to public places due to chance of infection - but Nanna and Great Grandpa arranged for us to have a privat Blessing from Father Vincent on Sunday afternoon. It was lovely , and so special - Deqlan actually got confirmed - the anointing of the sick clears all sins , and as Deqlan has not sinned Father confirmed him! He was all laughs and smiles during this very special happening and recieved the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Hope to post some photos of this soon

Today, we went back to Nannas house and started getting back into our "normal" routine ! We arrived to find no electricity and waited the entire day for it to return - by 1500 we had to leave as I had to catch up on some work ! Very frustrating but managed to do a bit of catch up tonight while Deqlan lies peacefully catching up on some sleep!

But Deqlan had a ball today playing with the chimes he LOVES so much, playng with his trains and laughing and giggling at the funny faces and sounds we make to make him laugh - what a precious boy he is - i cant get enough of him!

We still not eating all that well - but discovering that Deqlan is definitely more interested in big people food now - he tasted custard for the first time today and LOVED IT as much Logan does. He seems to LOVE the woolies baby food and has gone off purity completely - so woolies it is - even tried to make him fresh vegies and fruit, but not interested - so we will keep up trying until we find what Deqlan enjoys ! At least he is eating a little more...

On 11 July Deqlan will be 10 months old! Cant believe how the time has flown - he has definitel mastered the art of crawling and definitely wanting to pull himself up onto things ..he loves being on the floor and thinks he can run and walk already!

Hope you all sleep tight , God Bless and thank you for your continued support,prayers and love

Morning all,

I am so so happy that things are going really well for you guys and that Deqlan is gaining his strength and appetite on a daily basis. What wonderful news that he was confirmed, please post some pics!
We continue to pray for all of you on a daily basis.

Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the sick, we turn to you in this time of illness. O dearest comforter of the troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden. Dear God, we place our worries in your hands. We place our sick under your care and humbly ask that you restore your servant to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge your will and know that whatever you do, you do for the love of us. Amen.

Have a good day
Lots of love
Kobus Bron & Matthew
