10 down and 1 to go - i have longed for ssssssssssoooooooo long to type these words!
Things went well this morning, Deqlan did put up a fight though and tried to roll and get away from us holding him still - we have to - especially with vincristine, if the needle comes out the port and anything leaks - it will do serious serious damage it will actually burn the tissue - so we held his hands and Nanna sang songs and pointed to different pictures to try and take his mind off being restricted. His Baby Einstein Neighbourhood animals also helped a little bit this time
It was all done within 30 minutes, doc checked Deqlans body and was happy and no problems to report, thank You Dear Lord!
Next and FINAL ROUND( can you hear me shouting for joy) will be 25 October - we will also have full blood work down and urine tests, before the start of the scanning 31 October.
Dr De Jager will be away in India for a cancer conference from 27 Oct for a week so the scans wil be done while he is away - we are hoping they give the scans to us so we can at least have a look see at the report while we wait for the MIBG scans on 7 & 8 November.
We saw our friends Ruan and Yolandie this morning, Ruan is in for a 5 day treatment this time - he is walking to! As soon as he saw us he smiled and pointed to Deqlan - Our little soldier also gave a big grin back and they where clearly happy to see each other.
So we will count the days down in anticipation of the last , please Dear Lord, ever chemo session on 25 October!
Thank you for your emails, calls, sms, posts and above all prayers for today, we appreciate them more then you know! What a Blessing we have recieved in you all supporting Deqlan and being with us through this journey.
I have decided when a little bit of worry comes into my mind that I am immediately going to change it into a prayer, because I know that fear does not come from Our Lord. I place ALL MY TRUST IN HIM! Thank you Dear Lord for being with us through this journey and protecting and guiding us and for taking such wonderful care of our beautiful soldier, Deqlan
We recieved even more contributions to our CHOC food packs today - thank you so so very much Kyla, Dave and kids for the peanut better, rice, powered milk,jungle oats, spagetthi and custard powder - WE and the families that our going to be enjoying them say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the effort you went to and for being such wonderful friends to Megs - i hope our friendship also grows, you are wonderful people!
A quick update on Kate, she has started working around and started on clear fluids - all systems need to be working and Kate needs to be eating normally before they can all return home. They will also recieve the final details from the biopsies performed on the tumor today - please pray for fantastic results.
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEK AHEAD GOD BLESS AND LET US KNOW HOW YOU ALL ARE
