Rejoice in The Lord!

Hello Deqlans Prayer Army!

We are back with great, no, fantastic results in tow..

VMA -3.2
HMA - 7.1

All well within normal range! Dr De Jager is ecstatic at Deqlans progress and how well he is looking and how great his results continue to be.

Deqlan is 14.8kg and 95cm!!!! That means that by adulthood he will probably be over 1.8m!!!! Must be those genes from my Grandpa!

The great news is that Dr is happy for us to start vaccinations! But, seeing the port wasnt working last week and seeing we dont need it any more and please Dear Lord ever again, Dr suggests we remove it , as there is risk of clots forming if you leave it in to long. So, Plan is get to the port out asap then start vaccinations. Prof Beale is only back in the country again on Friday , so can only chat to him then- hoping to get a spot next week some time. So we have decided to get the first set of vaccinations tommorow, then have at least 1 week to recover then look at doing the removal of port - then get the second set of vaccinations 1 month after we are on the road that i have dreamt of for so long

I was saying to my mom and mark this morning that the best word to me is NORMAL - i dont need anything else, just normal.

Thank you all for your prayers, words of encouragement, and for always being there for our soldier .

Thank YOU DEAR LORD Above all us for continuing your miracles in Deqlan, for answering our prayers as we pray for them , thank you for keeping Deqlan in your loving hands .

We are thrilled and will let you know what we decide to do re surgery and vaccinations, please pray that all goes well tommorow with the first vaccinations and minimal side effects

Please continue to pray hard for Deqlan to remain NED always and please pray for all our warriors around the world

God Bless and all our love
Mark, Samm, Deqlan

That is a truly wonderful development. It is remarkable how exciting the prospect of getting a needle stuck into your child can be when it something NORMAL that every othr kid gets.

thank you again for all your prayers.

I'm happy to hear the urine results are great! Looks like Deqlan is doing great... he's for sure a big healthy boy (he's so much bigger than Adrian!).

Take care

Congratulations, we are so happy for you all.

We thank the Lord for this miracle as well as all the other miracles He has performed in Deqlans life, but most of all we thank the Lord for the miracle that is Deqlan Ross Higgins.

Deqlan, you have fought and conquered. You are such a big and brave little boy. Good Luck for your first round of injections. We pray that all goes well.

God Bless you all and keep you safe.
