I have just recieved the report from the surgeon, have it in my hands - and it reads:
I ENCLOSE THE HISTOLOGY AND YOU WILL NOTE THAT ONLY MATURE GANGLIONEUROMA IS PRESENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This means that every area that they tested from , the cells are completely mature and DEAD!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you Dear Lord, Thank YOU! We rejoice in YOUR name and again i say REJOICE!!!!
I cant even begin to explain how thankful I feel - i am on my knees , Thank You Dear Lord -THROUGH YOU ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE!
Just as i was reading the results to Nanna, Grandpa and Meggy , and of course Deqlan himself, Deqlan gave a great big scream and lifted his hands as if to say HOORAY ITS DEAD!
It also stated that the mass was 4 x 3 x 1cm, so much bigger then what they ct scan or ultrasound picked up, but its out - its out-its out!!!!!!!!
The surgeon again metions that the op was quite taxing to remove all the bits off the arteries and that if left he suspected definite problems with high blood pressure and other kidney problems. He confirmed that this started from the left para aortic side partially encasing the aorta and surrounding the origin of the left artery and the course of left renal artery and vein taxing the tenacity of the surgeon for a while. The upper extent of the tumour was at the lower pole of the left adrenal - both adrenals are normal.
Prof Beale ends the letter congratulating Dr De Jager on a highly satisfactory outcome for Deqlan!
What amazing doctors we have been Blessed with - Thank You Lord for working your miracles through Prof Beale and Dr De Jager - two names i shall always remember with such fondness and absolute gratitude and trust and respect.
Thank you to you all for your continued prayers and support - please continue to pray for Deqlans total and permanent healing, permanently
Please continue to pray as we go for the bone marrow biopsy tommorow , that all goes extremely well and that the results for this are just as fantastic and that we can scream NED FOREVER!
We PRAISE AND THANK YOU DEAR LORD , BY JESUS STRIPES DEQLAN CONTINUES TO BE HEALED!
