Update posted by Maileen Garcia On Dec 16, 2015

This photo was taken on December 7. Marick had a procedure called bone marrow aspiration.

This was taken earlier as we had to repeat the BMA for 2nd opinion. Please continue to pray for the healing of my brave and sweet little boy.

We had a recent activity in our village last December 5 & 6, 2015. It was a Christmas bazaar. This is where you can sell dry goods, food, beverages, and other things that you can sell. In our booth, what we sold was a siomai dumplings, gulaman, old magazines, pre-loved clothes, bags, toys, and other things useful at home.


My youngest sister Beck helped me on this 2 days bazaar, also with my other sister Joy and my Aunt Kathy. We were able to earn funds. Customer's mostly loved the siomai and the gulaman. Marick came to visit as well. He is the main boss of this event.

Marick: Thank you Lola Tess for these fruits that you have promised me! :)

These fruits are his favorite. Oranges, apples, grapes, and kiat kiat. Good for the body, good for health. All natural fruits. It helps support his immune system and for better recovery.

While Marick was confined last week November 13th, he need to undergo 2D ECHO before the chemotherapy starts...

And ECG as well. It tickled him when those little balloons were placed in his chest. A very strong and happy baby I should say.. :)

Then he asked me to buy him the green autobot from Transformers. ;)

Marick is confined at the moment in Dr. Victor Potenciano Medical Center for chemotherapy. The latest result of his bone marrow aspiration from last week was a 7% blast cells left in the bone marrow. We just got the result on Thursday, November 12th. The result of BMA on November 3rd was 83% blast cells and its now down to 7%. It is a great improvement. But we need it to be zero. Our doctor recommended a reinduction phase of chemotherapy for the blast cells to be cleared. These past few days, Marick is eating more & seems to be gaining weight. Thank God for this! He will have more strength and energy for the chemo session. Our prayer is for no side effect of this treatment. We are determined to win this battle.

Today Nov 4th, is his scheduled bone marrow aspiration and intrathecal at Dr. Victor Potenciano Medical Center. He is on sedation state before this can be done so he won't feel the pain. This picture is taken when he woke up, after the effect of anesthesia. He's still feels groggy. But in a few minutes he was able to manage to sit. It will take 5 days for the result. We hope and pray that the result will be in favor of us, negative from the bad cells. When we went out from the hospital, he started thinking of toy cars and asking me to buy one of the cars from the Disney movie "Cars" that he still don't have yet. At the back of my mind, it seems nothing happened to him today. I agreed to buy him one of the toy cars this coming weekend as I know this will make him happy.

Marick was discharged from the hospital on October 26th. Everything went back to normal. I Praise & Thank God that we were finally home. He can now eat anything again. But, we make sure that he is eating nutritious foods that contains vitamins & can fight cancer. Fruits & vegetables are included on his daily meal to help him recover. He missed eating oranges, apples, and grapes. He missed home, and the thing the he missed the most is internet connection. He loves watching videos in youtube. He watches videos of toy collectors, specially of Lightning Mcqueen cars. After all the injections and needle insertions, he remains strong & brave. So I just let him enjoy watching those videos after 9 days of confinement.

As per my last update on October 16th, the following day Marick was already brought to the hospital. The pain this time is like twice as what he was feeling the day before. He wasn't able to get enough sleep as the pain recurs twice in an hour. Tests were done, he also underwent abdominal CT Scan. Our doctor confirmed that he got Typhlitis, which is a complication or side effect of the chemo drugs. As what the doctor has described its inflammation of the intestine. The treatment for this is NPO (nothing by mouth) and antibiotics. Until now he is still confined. Please add him to your prayers for his speedy recovery.

Thank God that we were discharged from the hospital on October 13th. There were no take home medicines. Marick has to rest for 1 week & then next week he has another schedule for Bone Marrow Aspiration. At the moment he has been experiencing the side effects of the chemo drug. But he is a fighter. He's experiencing abdominal pain. He cant eat too much, only a small amount of food. Even if he is enduring pain while in bed, he was able to tell me "mommy kaya ko to." Hearing those words from my son gives me so much strength and courage. That's why i made a hashtag for him as #marickthefighter. He really is a fighter. With God's help, he will soon be healed.
