Tomorows the day
Hope you had a great weekend ! We had a lovely , but hot weekend.
Today marks exactly 9 months ago that Deqlan was diagnosed with neuroblastoma and exactly 4 months ago Deqlan had his last round of chemo - Praise Our Healing Lord!
Went to church with Nanna, Great Grandpa, Meggie and Keaton on Saturday afternoon - as you can imagine, everyone that walked past had to take a peek at little Keaton and lots of ooohhhs and aaawwws! Shame - he is getting to cute for words and so good!
On Sunday, Nanna and Grandpa hosted a lunch for Great Grandpa and Great Nans 54th wedding anniversary - which is actually on 27 Feb 2008.
We had such an unforgettable moment while eating lunch - the song SMILE played and the tears came down Great Nans face- the song is just so emotional and so true and so powerful..so Great Nan started the tears - then Nanna, then Meggie...oh dear..it was such a special moment that i will treasure always! We quickly changed the tears into laughter for Great Nan and she was laughing and smiling again in no time!
What an amazing achievement that is - 54 years - i cant tell you of anyone else that i know that has been together for such a long time, that still love each other more each day. It was wonderful to have Nan out for the day and wonderful to reminisce with them about their wedding day and honeymoon - I thank Our Lord every day that I still have both my grandparents and Deqlan both his great grandparents - what an absolute honor!
It was also the first time Great Nan met Keaton - also unforgetable to see the excitement and pure love and joy in Great Nans eyes! She also loved laughing and chatting to Deqlan who was besotted with the wheels on her wheel chair! Great Nan was very impressed at how big Deqlan had grown and how well he was looking!
Well, tomorrow is the big day for our soldier - We go to Dr De Jager at 9am for the results of the blood and urine tests and along with that my list of questions! Please say an extra special prayer for our soldier tomorrow, that the results are normal and that Deqlan remains No Evidence of Disease. Shall let you know as soon as we do - feel free to add a dash of green or camo into your outfit for the day as support for our Deqlan.
Have a lovely evening, thank you for your continued support and prayers - they continue to work miracles as Our Lord continues to answer our prayers.
God Bless and lots of love
Mark, Samm, Deqlan
