OUR SOLDIER HAS TONSILITIS







Hello Deqlans army
How are you all doing?

Deqlan has been a little niggly pulling on his ear on nose and touching his head the last few days, and we have kept a close on eye it. This morning however, Deqlan cried and moaned and groaned and i just couldnt figure out what was wrong or worrying him. After him not wanting his dummy, bottle of milk or juice, it seemed like it was sore to swallow, so i guessed it was his ears or throat giving him so much hassle. After trying for half an hour i eventually got through to the doctors rooms and made an appoinment to have him checked out.

By the time we got to Nanna, he was a little better and even enjoyed a slice of Nanna's famous french toast !
Our soldier fell asleep before we left for the hospital and stayed in dreamland until we got there, he wasnt very happy waking up there, but we managed to calm him down with some cars and mickey mouse
Dr Engelbrecht couldnt find anything wrong with his ears after doing a number of tests, his tummy felt great , but when she had a look in his throat, oh boy , she said straight away tonsilitis it is! She even got me to have a look and i was shocked to see such red swollen tonsils with little white sores everywhere - shame, it looked so sore. She said it was no wonder Deqlan was feeling like he was. So we have him on an antibiotic and hopefully can start kicking in and start making our soldier feel better!
I have had a cold hanging around for a week or so, so decided to go to the doctor to get myself sorted out so we dont re infect each other,i have upper respiratory infection, so also on antibiotics - Grandpa also feels exactly as i do and got the same meds to!
So its going to be a very quiet weekend of unpacking and recovering, please pray for Deqlan to feel better soon!
God Bless, be in touch soon, enjoy the photos of Deqlan and Keaton - Deqlan has become so lovable and caring with Keaton the last few days - so much eye contact, so much interest in him , even tries to make him laugh by playing games. These photos where precious and i am so grateful megs had her camera and video camera around - Deqlan wanted to share his dummy with Keaton, then bent down to kiss him, man it was adorable, and i moment ill treasure always. Thanks Megs for the lovely musical toys and gorgeous cars clothes for Deqlan, they are gorgeous!
All our love
Mark, Samm, Deqlan
