Mommy Connie Almaria is at St Luke's Quezon City right now battling cancer. She was diagnosed last August as a case of uterine cancer, supposedly with good prognosis (Endometroid type) and underwent completion surgery/radiation. However, two weeks ago, she had abdominal pain and abdominal enlargement (ascites) - unexpected recurrence - peritoneal carcinomatosis. She underwent a major operation (cytoreductive surgery) which lasted for 11 hours. She had numerous blood transfusion (14 u in total) and she stayed in the ICU for 3 nights - dialysis, albumin infusion, total parenteral nutrition. She is being closely monitored. She will need to undergo chemotherapy the soonest possible time because her cancer is very aggressive. After the chemo, she will then undergo radiation. Please offer your prayers to Mommy Connie and we hope you can help us raise funds for her present confinement, chemotherapy and radiation. Let's help Mommy Connie crush cancer!

Its the 3rd of 3 sessions for cycle 1 chemo today :) We had our labs done last Saturday and was cleared to undergo this procedure today. Off to the hospital again, glad that this is going to be as outpatient. Next week, if God (and labs) permit, Mama Connie. . . . .
Discharged!Update posted by Marie Josephine Conifedd Almaria at 12:53 pm
It was a long waiting period between the 1st and 2nd chemo session. Mommy Connie had high grade fever and chills and was diagnosed to have complicated urinary tract infection hence the supposed chemo set on February 22 did not take place. She was started on Ertapenem to address this. . . . .

Mama has been having fever the past few days and work-up is ongoing for a possible infection. She is on Meropenem, Vancomycin and Fluconazole. Praying this will resolve so our scheduled chemo will push through! Lord grant my mama strength! Continue praying with us please.
