I cant believe how quickly time has gone, the most precious tiny little baby that was placed in my arms almost two years ago, has grown into the most vibrant, energetic, playful, loving toddler i could ever have been blessed with.
We love watching you blossom into the toddler you are becoming, learning so much from you each moment of the day- we continue to witness the miracles happening in , around and through you and again, feel so blessed and honored!
Always, always know how much we love you , we adore you , you are hero and inspiration, our beautiful soldier, we love you chicken with all our hearts!

DADA AND MAMA
We had a great weekend, really enjoying the warmer weather and already getting into the mood of summer and just wanting to be outside to have braai's and swim and fresh air and especially to watch Mr Deqlan enjoy all the benefits of being outside
This weekend, he discovered the sprinkler Dada had put on to water the very thirsty plants, and you all know what happened next...he started running through them and smiling and taking deep breaths every time the water drops landed on his face and head - he then started running further and further away so he could make his run way longer to get to all the fun! We of course had to cut this all a little short, as its not cut summer yet and don't want any colds to arrive , especially not this week.
We managed to unpack, move things around, and get a little more organised this weekend - got Deqlans play room a little more organised and started on Logans room - boy i cant wait to hear the sound of two kids running around having fun, even fighting, just to have them together again is going to be an absolute gift we have waited for so long.
I have been speaking to some nurses at the clinic, the vaccine help line and our paediatrician to formulate the game plan for Deqlans re vaccinations - now, i just wait the final go ahead from Dr De Jager on the 25th of August - we might, maybe, hoping to - start his vaccines as soon as 26 August - as the vaccine changes in composition after the age of 2 - so we are going to see what we can get done, if Dr De Jager gives us the go ahead, before Deqlan turns 2 in 1 month.
Deqlan LOVED getting into the jacuzzi with Grandpa this afternoon - he is actually still in there and i hear Nanna battling to get him out - this kid is more then a water baby, i think he is actually half dolphin!
Conrad, Megs and Keaton arrive back tonight after a week long holiday in Mauritius - we certainly missed them but hear they have had a fantastic time, cant wait to see the photos and see little keaton in his beach gear!
Happy Birthday Uncle Quintin for the 5th of August we hope you had a fantastic day and wonderful year ahead, with lots of blessings !
Happy Birthday to you Charles for today, we hope you have a great day and great celebrations in store!
Have a great week everyone and please start your prayers for our upcoming tests this Friday, please let the ultrasound of the primary tumor area be totally clear and let the blood and urine tests go smoothly!
Please continue to pray for all of our friends around the world - don't know if you managed to catch the opening ceremony of the Olympics - breathtaking - they apparently spent 43 billion Us Dollars on the games,can you just imagine what we could find if just 1 percent of that, if any of that could be used to find the cure for Neuroblastoma..i don't even think they would've missed that little amount, but to the world of neuroblastoma would've been a huge difference....
God Bless lots of love
Mark, Samm & Deqlan
FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU DECLARES THE LORD, PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT TO HARM YOU, PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE A FUTURE
