Update on Kate

What fantastic news we recieved late last night from Karen, Kates mom:

OUR PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED! OUR PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED! The cells are mature and there is a 95% chance they will do no harm. With neuroblastoma, there are never any guarantees and the word remission isn't used. However, Kate is now officially off treatment!!! Our next step is to get her baseline CT scan completed and get her central line removed. More details on that tonight...for now, just celebrate with me! We are at the end of the treatment tunnel and I can't wait to officially step in to the light. THANK GOD! THANK ALL OF YOU! KATE IS HEALED!

Ryan, Kates brother got to throw 'kates tumor' in the trash!

Congrats to all of you, what a miracle, thank Our Healing and Wonderful Lord. Kate , you are an inspiration to us and I cant wait to scream the same words for Deqlan. A huge hug to you gorgeous Kate!

We have had a great day here, we even took Deqlan for a ride in the car to the shops and Nanna and I took turns going in to get what we needed. Deqlan thoroughly enjoyed this and had lots of giggles and laughs with Nanna in the back seat. How special that moment was - Deqlans laugh is music to our ears - there is nothing more beautiful or priceless.

We are counting the hours down to our next session tommorow and please Dear Healing Lord, our last EVER. Shall post as soon as we are back to let you know how well our soldier did!

Megs went for her 6 month check up today and we are probably looking at 8 or 11 Feb for baby to arrive - we cant believe she is already in her last trimester - she looks more beautiful and radiant each day! We cant wait to meet Keaton, we already love him so much and I know Deqlan and Keaton are going to be the best of friends, even if they do get up to alot of mischief together.

Till tommorow then, when i can type the words, round 11 is done, no more chemo, please Dear Lord EVER.

I recieved the most beautiful words from my dear friend Claire:
“The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you...”

Lord we believe, Lord we recieve, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE, LORD WE BELIEVE!

God Bless, sleep tight
All our love
Mark, Samm & Deqlan
