Help Alice Celebrate Christmas

Update posted by Alexis Vida Medina Lim On Dec 05, 2015

Sadly, Alice will not be celebrating Christmas this year with her family as our Creator bid her to His side on 4 December 2015.

We love you Mama. We miss you already

Mama had a rather weird reaction to one of the chemo drugs (Ifosfamide in particular) four days ago that caused her to go all-Linda Blair in the Exorcist for 24 hours. When the doctors finally conclude that it was the drug that caused her hallucinations and crossed her brain signals and prescribed olanzapine, she was already on her way to recovering.

Unfortunately, her ICE chemo for her lymphoma/leukemia is causing all sorts of issues with her blood and other vitals. She has had 3 bags of blood infusions and 6 bags of platelets in the past 2 days. Her blood pressure is low and she's having a hard time breathing. She was transferred to the ICU just a few hours ago to be better monitored for a day or two (I hope). Mama, being Mama, thought there was more to the transfer than I was telling her and the situation was more dire that what the doctors were telling her (and really, there was not except that her tachycardia, blood pressure and other vitals will be better monitored). We're crossing our fingers that's all there is to it and she'll be better in the next few days

Mama just got admitted at the National Kidney and Transplant Institute today (where she also had her chemo 13 months ago). The pain in her abdomen must have been too much to bear because she appeared disoriented earlier, asking me what hospital we were in. We have always gone to NKTI for her treatments so this is an alarming development.

After three hours of waiting, we were finally ushered to her room. The doctors are checking her vitals and beginning with her tests so hopefully after she starts the first of her three chemo drugs (and they treat her h. pylori) she'll feel a lot better.

And again, to our many Santas, thank you for the help. We are a long way from the amount she needs for her stem cell transplant but this is a good start. More updates in the next few days.

We are so overwhelmed with the outpouring of support we have received for Mama. With your help, Alice is ready for her first chemo (ICE) next week! A very dear friend also helped us with an endorsement of medical assistance at NKTI so we are hoping to make use of it next week as well to lower the bill and use the rest funds towards the next session. We've reached 10% of goal and we are so grateful because we can get started.

Alice is still weak but slowly gaining strength. I have her on a mega-dose of transfer factor to boost her immunity and hopefully halt the cancer's spread to her bones. She still hates her veggies, will eat a lot of fruits, and is willing to be bribed with pizza, pasta and cake - all of which are off-limits to her at this time.

We're still a long way from 1.5M but with God's grace we'll get there.
