We are about to leave for admission to LCM Paediatric Oncology Unit, (with our precious Deqlan very appropriately dressed in camouflage attire for the "war" we will continue to fight this round). We ask that you lift our Deqlan, Samm and Mark up in prayer and continue in blessing them with your dedicated prayers and loving wishes. You will never know how much they mean to the whole family and how supportive and energizing they are, especially when "weariness" sets in. Samm will update the blog later with more news, but judging from the beautiful rosy cheeks, pink heels, and what remains of what is just a very slight cold, Deqlan's bloods should be in order for the 8th round to commence. This will be the last hospital "stay" of 2 nights and 3 days (since the remaining 3 chemo sessions will require only "day visits") so there is great reason to give our humble praise and most loving and grateful thanks to our Lord, the Great Physician, for His being with us every step of the way in our challenge, for His promises never to "forsake us" and His vow to reveal the plans He has for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, and plans to give us hope and a future" (Jeremiah 19:23).

Hi dear family,
I have been thinking of you constantly today, for the last round of chemo. Now that the soldier can "stand by himself" - he will be an even stronger warrior and soldier. Bless him. I pray that this is his last round, and that the surgeons can remove what is left of this awful disease. I admire you all hugely for coping as well as you do, for staying so strong and so positive. I am half way through my treatment, and I'm feelign tired. It is NOTHING compared to what you have to go through - so hats off to you all, for your inner strength and ongoing positive attitudes. In my thoughts and prayers constantly.
Love always,

Hello all,

Thinking of you today as the last round of chemo commences, sure it is all going to go well.

Almighty God, who gives strength to the weak and upholds those who might fall, give them courage to do what is right, for those that trust in you have no need to fear.

Make them brave to face any danger which may now threaten them.

Give them the help that you have promised to those who ask it, that they may overcome their fears and go bravely forward.

Let them put their trust in your power and goodness.

Thank you my Lord.

Lots of Love

Kobus, Bron & Matt
