Help Chad to recover from Thymic Carcinoma

Update posted by Ara Manuel On Dec 09, 2018

We're okay but we're still in the hospital. His LBM is still the issue. Last week I requested a diagnosis info and my heart broke a bit. All this time we thought that his CA is at stage 2, but we were advise today that is it was stage 3.

The plan number cycles of chemo is 6 cycles. We can't push through with his 4th scheduled chemo since the onco is not comfortable that he has LBM. We're extending another week or two in the hospital.

Requesting prayers again that we get pass this earthly trial.

  1. He still has a low RBC and still needed a second bag of blood transfused.

We were advised that he needed to have a blood transfusion because his RBC dropped. Thank God there was an available blood for him to use. We're still recovering and his strength hasn't come back yet

Early re-admission at the hospital. Chad got rushed to the hospital last Nov.29 due to his fever and vitals drop. A simple fever or cough is a big deal for cancer patients because it causes complication

When we got his CBC result it was all below normal range.

We're done with his 3rd chemo cycle. We'll still have a 4th cycle session. Good news! His surgeon has removed his JP drain! Praise GOD! Small steps, little by little we're getting back to normal life.

God is always good and we're thankful for all the prayers, help and support of the people who have read/shared this fundraiser campaign.

Getting ready for his 3rd chemo. We'll still have a 4th cycle scheduled on Dec.12th. Praying hard that would be the last chemo and we'll be cancer-free. We're embracing now and claiming that he's cancer-free. Good and positive vibes. In God, we know nothing is impossible and God Bless all his doctors that take good care of him through-out his chemo cycles.

He’s done with his 2nd cycle. Praying that he gets better and we claim in JESUS name that he’s already cancer free!

***Updates***

He had a unofficial 2d echo check, doctors findings is that there is no significant changes on the obstruction. This means that the tumor did not grow neither did it shrink. The good news for the doctors the tumor is not growing.

We believe that everything is in God's perfect timing and we feel his omnipresence so much. We are overwhelmed by blessings and support from God and people we love.

We were re-admitted Oct.30th for his chemo prep,check of cbc, urine and xray. Thankful that we were able to get through the day with no fever or what-so-over other sickness.

Oct.31st

5:30pm he was given the pre-meds for his chemo. Anti-allergy, anti-nasuea and other possible side-effect of the chemo drug.

6:30pm chemo dose (carboplatin) started and it will take 3hrs to finish.

Since chad's experiencing hair loss due to side effects of chemo. We went to the barber shop to have his head shaved and now we're bald. (The barber wanted to shaved me bald as well to support chad but nope so much I want to.)

A week before 2nd chemo cycle, Chad has experienced several side effects of the 1st chemo.

Early this week he felt consistent pain in his stomach and side which cause him difficulty to walk, eat and stand up. Then there’s still consistent numbing of hands and feet but he said it was manageable.

The JP fluid drain increased, pulse rate increased as well to 100-107 and he his rapid breathing is the same again.

Lastly, he recently started to have hairloss. I said that was okay and his hair will grow back.

On Oct. 30th, we’ll be re-admitted in the hospital to have his 2nd chemo treatment. Please continue to pray for Chad’s safe chemo, continuous recovery and be fully healed.

God bless
