Wednesday, the 22nd of August 2007











We thought we would post some new pics of Deqlan this week so enjoy!








We have been spedning our days at home, Nanna and Meggy coming to visit during the day and watching Deqlan whilst i try and work and continue cleaning ! They are AMAZING to say the least - I dont know WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT THEIR HELP - I have the best Mom and Sister IN THE WORLD and Deqlan the best NANNA AND MEGGY IN THE WORLD. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart for the endless hours of help, encouragement, prayer and all the great times we have together with Deqlan -i treasure them. I love you both so very very very much and Deqlan loves you just as much








Deqlan also has the BEST DAD IN THE WORLD - to Mark , thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and for always being there for us - You are truly the best Dad and Husband in the world and I admire how much Deqlan loves you - We both love you more and more each day!








We have been enjoying Deqlans DVDS that he loves so very much -Baby Einstein, Baby Genius, and a stunning DVD Grandpa bought him with 50 kids songs








Nanna has also invented the most awesome game as we have to seperate the pets from Deqlan - we put him in the pram and run alongside the fence with the dogs - they all love this game!








Deqlan seems to have a bit more colour todat and the bruising seems slightly better so im sure he is on the mend!








We are assisting with some gifts for the Birthday party for a few kids at Kalefong hospital this weekend so Meggy will meet Yolande from CHOC on Saturday to hand over Deqlans Balloons of bravery and Bubbles of Hope - we are so excited to bring some smiles to these very brave kids!








Please continue to pray for our little warrior that his immune system continues to heal, that the tumor continues to shrink and die and that he recieves total and permanent healing from Our Heavenly Father. Please also pray for all our dear friends and their families to.








God Bless and have a lovely week




Love




Mark , Samm & Deqlan

To my dearest Samm, Mark and Deqlan. Words cannot even begin to describe the pride I carry in my heart for all three of you today! Wow - what a ride that last 3 months have been. You are my inspiration, my hope, my belief and my gaurentee that with GOD ALL things are possible. The lessons we have learnt along this journey are one's that I thought were unimaginable. The lesson to never take anyone or anything for granted, to never take a smile or a laugh for granted, to try not to judge others, although it may be very difficult, to trust with all your heart and soul in our Lord, to be thankful for each and every day that our precious Lord gives us and to treasure each moment shared with a loved one and be able to place your head on your pillow each night knowing that you achieved everything you wanted to achieve that day and you pleased God! From the day that Deqlan was diagnoised, my heart broken and in pieces, my faith a bit shaken, my world for a moment shattered, I have always maintained the same exact thought - "Everything is going to be okay, Deqlan IS going to get through this and he will be a soldier for the Lord!!!! He will be the exception to the rule!!!" I know this deep, deep, deep, deep down in my heart! The bravery shown my our sweet little boy (at 8 months up until now) has beeen extraodinary!!! Words cannot significantly decribe how brave he has been - he has formed such a bond with his "earth healer", his oncologist and he is always a happy and smiling boy whenever he is in hospital for treatment. Samm - you and mom said from the moment that Deqlan was born that "this was no ordinary boy", and you were right - he was sent here for a reason and he will forfill God's will on this earth one step at a time! No amount of money in the world could measure the Love he has given us, the pride we have for him, the absolute bravery and the endless memories of laughter, joy and happiness! As we continue on this journey always look to God and remember that "he has great plans for us" "Plans to prospher us and not to hurt us", he will always be your shoulder to cry on and your heavenly father. It is the greatest HONOR of my life to share this road with you and mark and Deqlan and know that I would do anything for you and just know how my joy and love he brings to be everyday! My heart beams with love, adoration and pure delight to watch my Godson grow up everyday and have the honor easing the burden just a little for you! Never forget how much I love and admire you - you are my hero, my sister, my friend!! How truly blessed we are to have had such a wonderful and devotional mom our whole lives, YOU have learnt from the best dear Samm - never forget that! If I am half the mother that you dear Samm - i would have succeeded!!!!!!! To my dear Mom - Thank you for all the lessons you have taught us in life, for our manners, our morals, our commitments, for sharing our good times and bad times and for always being "mom" - a lady will great honor and pride, a lady with the biggest heart in the world, a lady that could never harm a soul, a lady that always put her children first, a mother that sacrificed more that anyone reading this could understand, a mother who would go to the end of the world for us and back! I salute you! What wonderful children you have brought up and what a honor it is for you to influence Deqlans life daily by looking after Deqlan everyday whilst Samm runs her own business! I leave you with one more thought mom and samm - "The honors all mine!!!!!!!!: May God bless you all today and always and never forget the deep devotion and love I have for you! To my Deqlan - I just know that you are going to kick NB Butt!!!! You are the sunshine of my life!!! All my love, Megs
