Thursday, the 30th of August 2007

What a lovely day we had yesterday! It was Meggies Birthday and with the arrival of Meggie and Nanna to the ward was the arrival of Deqlans 7th tooth, we discovered as they arrived!
Meggie loved her presents ! Nanna and I arranged for a surprise brunch on the balcony of the oncology ward, it was so wonderful! Deqlan was in his element as we where outside - so he could watch the cars and the fresh air did him the world of good. Nanna went to SO MUCH effort - she even made us party boxes - was stunning
We all said that it was a wonderful and unfortgetable day and no matter where we are - at a fancy restaurant, at home or even an oncology ward it was so wonderful as we where together and are spirits high!

Dr De Jager gave Deqlan the all clear and we where told we could leave round 1800 last night.
Deqlan was nauseous during the day, which we havent really experienced before , but it seemed to get better during the day as he enjoyed the flings and other goodies Nanna had packed in his party box. DR De Jager has kindly delayed the 7th round by 2 days so that we are at home for Deqlans 1st Birthday on the 11th! Thanks to him - so we go back on 12 Sep for 1 night next time. Deqlan didnt even cry when we removed the plaster and porto cath needle ! We think he is definitley getting used to everything - what a star patient he is , what a soldier he is, im SO PROUD OF HIM! Dada took us home round 1830 last night and my little monster was so happy to be able to be crawling on the floor again and to see his beloved doggies!

Thank you to OUr Heavenly Father that all went smoothly this time and we thank you for your continued total and permanent healing of our precious boy, and your loyal soldier. We can do ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS US
Thanks so much for all the calls, sms, emails and posts - we are so Blessed to have you right behind Deqlan!

God Bless
Lots of Love
Mark, Samm & Deqlan

It was good to read your report today and it sounds like your little boy is doing great. I will continue to pray for his and his healing. I am glad he can be home for his birthday. Deqlan is SO CUTE and his smile is precious.
