11th August 2013

It didn't take long for reality to set in once we returned home from our wonderful trip for Victoria's wish.

We arrived back home at 3pm on Saturday, and by 8pm that night Victoria started to feel unwell. By 6am Sunday morning we were on our way to the John Hunter Hospital. After some initial blood tests showed that Victoria had plenty of neutrofils, and the absence of any more high temperatures,  it was decided at 10am that Victoria could go home. 

However at 10.30am when the nurse came to de-access her port, it was apparent her temperature was climbing again, so home was no longer an option! Hence we are still here and will be at least until tomorrow.

Victoria is okay within herself, and certainly brightened up with a visit from the rest of the family this afternoon. 

We are just all so grateful that Victoria remained well whilst on her wish, another example of God's amazing grace on her life.

Today has certainly been a day for drawing deep from God's strength .... Isaiah 12:2,3

Behold, God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord God is my strength and song; yes, He has become my salvation. Therefore with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation.

I know I say this on every update, and I am going to keep saying it, thank you so much for your prayers and practical support. Please don't underestimate the power of your prayer, our whole family is a testimony to answered prayer. And every single bit of practical help given to us helps us to all keep going physically and emotionally. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
