Some new photos for you all to enjoy!

Deqlan has mastered the art of opening the cupboard and choosing his favorite biscuits, Nanna joins him to now!

The photos with Deqlans big smiles, one the most precious of i have seen, are from Nanna singing songs from Roly mo!

Keaton is growing more beautiful by the day and beginning to make lots of beautiful sounds that result in us all saying oooohhhh and aaaawwww.

We just returned from a visit from Sophie and Deqlan was spoilt rotten ! Aunty Sophie had his chocolate milkshake on tap, some hedgehog meringues and a very cute car to play with! Deqlan loved the watering can in the garden and was soon into the water and mud with Mama! Thank you for a lovely visit Sophie and we wish you wonderful and happy times in your beautiful new home!

I definitely see changes in Deqlan - he is a lot more vocal with a lot more sounds - pa, na, ta, da, ba, ma and saying them more often and in different pitches - he is definitely referring to Otto when he runs to the back door saying O! He is also enjoying the occupational therapy exercises we have been giving for the week , so Much so that we get lots of laughs during the exercises! If i am not superfit and a few kilos lighter after these few months then I dont know......He is also playing for longer with certain toys and definitely giving me more eye contact at times, so i am so pleased with his progress - so far so wonderful!!!

Well, the strep bug Deqlan had did not escape me ! I to now have the sore throat , sore ears , fuzzy head and swollen glands! So im on a whole lot of medicine and antibiotics and the trusted mask is out again so not to infect our soldier again

Some great news for the day, Austin seems to be getting a bit better and his bone marrow definitely shows improvement! Please continue to pray for this amazing fighter!

Some other positive news is that Yolandie from CHOC, has gone for a second opinion and things seem to be looking a little brighter for her to, please continue to pray for Yolandie and her family

Please also continue special prayers for Sophia, Charlize, Ruan, Katie , Tyler , Elizabeth and all of our others friends fighting this beast and other cancers.

Have a lovely evening, God Bless and all our love
Mark, Samm and Deqlan
