Hello Deqlans Army
Im sorry only posting now , been a long 2 days and just got a quick moment to say hello to you all, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing support and prayers you continue to shower upon us - we are so humbled and blown away by the amount of support and how Blessed we are to have you all behind us
Deqlan is sleeping very comfortably tonight and is definitely on the mend - i managed to get a smile out of him while singing to a Telly Tubbies dvd - he seems more comfortable then last night.
The surgeon, amazing Prof Beale and the amazing aneathetist continue to check in on us - Prof Beale removed the naso gastric tube this morning already - what a fantastic surprise that was for us - we expected it in at least a few days. Deqlan has already has 3 x 30 mls of water and a tiny bit of apple juice , and loved the cool liquid down his throat, and has kept it all down - great news and all looking good. We shall continue with small sips during the night and hopefully we can start on milk tommorow. Overall both docs seem happy with Deqlan. He is looking great - great colour, and restful.
We have been told, that this tumor did not start from the adrenal gland as we have thought all along, it actually started from the para aorta artery to the heart , and grew towards the adrenal gland. It actually in cased this and the renal artery ( to the kidney). Prof Beale said it took longer then expected as the scans only showed the tiny little remainder of the tumor - the scans did not show the fibrous tissue and that there was more involved then what the surgeon envisaged. He said he has taken everything out that he can see, and is positive that the cells are dead and mature , but looking at its fibrous appearance - we shall continue to be patient and wait the few days its going to take for results to come back ..please continue to pray that all cells are mature and dead and destroyed totally and permanently.
Prof Beale said we definitely made the right decision in removing the tumor as he doubts the encasing round the renal artery would have disapeared by itself - this could have caused high blood pressure problems for Deqlan
Thank you Dear Lord for helping us make the right decision.
I hope to update with more tommorow , please continue to pray for our beautiful soldier that is doing so well - we are so proud of you by beautiful Boy.
I seem to be coming down with flu - feel fine, but sore throat ...have got my mask on, already seen a doc and waiting for my meds to arrive in the morning
Sleep tight all, im off for now and thank you again for your amazing support - I know Deqlan is going to thank you all some day in person!
BY JESUS STRIPES DEQLAN IS HEALED!
GOD BLESS AND ALL OUR LOVE
