Army get your camo out!

Hello Deqlans Army,

Its that time again - please get your camo and green out in support of our soldiers 3 monthly check up tommorow

I have been wearing camo or green in my outfits the entire week!

We will start with going to Mass at 8am for celebration of the Assumption of Our Lady and of course to ask for special prayers and a blessing for Deqlan from Father Rusell.

We will then make our way to Little Company of Mary to have the bloods drawn and urine sample taken at 9am, and hopefully be all done and ready for our ultrasound at 0930am and then be on our way home - then patiently wait, while we trust , for the results on 25th of August.

Thank you to you all already for all your emails and messages of support , and above all prayers for Deqlan for tommorow.

Please pray that all goes exactly according to plan, that Deqlan is calm and relaxed, that the food restrictions and limited fluid intake brings the levels back down to under 10 for the vma/hva test - please pray that the ultrasound reveals nothing in the area of the primary tumor - please pray for the results on the 25th of August to be completely normal and for Deqlan to recieve the greatest 2nd Birthday gift of remaining NED always.

I have great moments of feeling absolutely positive that Deqlans results are going to be just perfect, and then i have moments where i start to worry a little - but i quickly shrug that off and try and concentrate on how well Deqlan has done and continues to do and that by JESUS STRIPES DEQLAN HAS BEEN HEALED! BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD continues to ring through mny head - and at Mass this pass weekend the message was about faith - if you have faith, even as big as a mustard seed, you can move mountains!

We need to ask you for a very special prayer request for Arden, who is having breathing complications during her second stem cell transplant, her Moms post are more then entertaining, inspirational and motivational and i know they would appreciate each and every prayer! - have added her link to our links, right at the top

Please also pray for Baby Zach, just diagnosed with stage 4s neuroblastoma at 8 weeks of age, his link also on the top of the links, i know how daunting and frightening the first few days of diagnoses are , and every prayer means the world , please pray for baby Zach as he begins this journey of healing

Please continue to pray for ALL OF OUR NB WARRIORS around the world, in everything they are needing light and assistance and above all healing on - Our Lord is a miracle worker!

Have a great day and thank you from the bottom of our heart for all your prayers and love and support

Keep the faith and stay strong-easy words to say, quite different to be so stoic...I love the going to Mass right before, we do that too, lol! I'll be praying for Deqlan to sail through it all. And for you to remain strong during the waiting time.
Love to all-
Debbie & Connor

Jayden and Hannah are wearing are all in our prayers and hang in there and be strong. Dont worry and enjoy each moment together as we never know when it will be our last kiss our last hug and that is for all of us even us that dont have cancer. That is why it is important to live in the moment and dont take the future for granted. Each time i kiss my kids good bye i tell them that their mama loves them and kiss them really kiss them not just a quick peak out of habit. And a quick prayer always helps too.

enjoy the weekend.

Debbie, Jayden and Hannah
