Felix’s cancer treatments

Update posted by Lisa Chang On Jun 17, 2018

Just like to send everyone a love felt thank you and our deepest gratitude for all the love and support everyone from far and wide who have shown us truly how lucky and fortunate we are. I like to share below a brief update from Felix. And wishing all the fathers out there a fantastic happy Father's Day.

from Felix 20180617 :

A father's wish on father's day, is to be able to spend it with his kiddo and hang out for the day, doing fun stuff together, laugh together and generally lap up the company of a funny, naughty, active, non-stop talking, energetic and loving little kid. So today, on father's day, I got my wish, however unlikely, it happened.
I was meant to be spending father's day at the hospital with the start of my chemo cycle 2, which was supposed to start yesterday.
But my Friday blood test showed an unusual drop in my white blood cell count, to a point that the oncologist said, we need to give you one more week off to build that count up before taking on round 2.... I was actually quite gutted initially, as I had felt quite good physicslly during my week off after fighting the side effects from the first cycle of chemo, although rest week turned into a stressful week, but, I had prepared mentally to go into battle again for cycle 2. Then they tell me it ain't going to happen....
That's life right, I was so concerned about the delay having drawbacks on the effectiveness of my chemo cycles regime... then, I had time to think about it more - one more week means I get to hopefully have nice weather to execute my original plan of spending some time relaxing on a beach (the past week has been raining non-stop), spend some time in the office catching up with a little work, do some of the things I wanted to do for myself and be a bit selfish so I can spend time by myself, but most important of all, I don't have to spend father's day in a hospital bed drugged up to my eyeballs in chemo meds, but instead get to hang with my fun loving kiddo!! I think someone up there, whatever the entity, is actually trying to help me get through this and let me have time to chill after the week I've had, mysteriously along the way, it all works out.
I've no clue what the grand plan is, but the events leading up to these thoughts above, I say, is a pretty awesome one in its own ways. A bit of a win.
Apart from the mysterious forces that have led the charge in the way things have happened this past week, I've also had a little more time to read over what everyone has written, posted, reposted, planned, sent, emailed, and it's hit me like a ton of bricks, that although I feel a bit undeserving, as there are plenty more people out there with more desperate needs than me and my family, but yet, I'm very very fortunate, as a single child, to have all your love out there, that feels like, closest I'll get, to be my extended family, and feels like having a ton of siblings, if this is what it feels like to have siblings, the biggest wish I've ever had since I was a young kid.
It's an unreal feeling, it's strange, but it warms my soul (sorry, I know, a bit mooshy....).
This past week, I found out, a friend passed away, someone I thought who is vivacious, strong, fun loving, yet, she had a dark side that took her in the end. I didn't know her well, but I would never have guessed that would be her end. It served as a reminder for me at that moment when I heard the news, in the real world, many may suffer from such termoil within, and I wonder, if only she knew what amount of love and support she has out there in her circle, like I'm realising myself as a result of my illness, about the circle of love I have out there for me, whether the dark would have taken her.
For that, I cannot say enough thanks ever, no amount of thanks really in the world would be enough, to you guys out there, who have shown me what an extraordinary extended family I have, how lucky I really am actually, and how wide my circle of love is.
For that, I rather take one for the team, statistically speaking, if that means my family, extended family, and circle of love, would never ever have to deal with such an illness in their life time.
And by the way, Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. Have an awesome day!!
Love, Felix.
