Just keeps fighting

Update posted by Thornton281 On May 14, 2015

We Knew that this first 2 days of chemo was going to be the worst chemo you can have. But we were not prepared for the way Candice's body reacted to it. Neither were the doctors.

Tony said all of a sudden the room was full of doctors and nurses, her temperature and blood pressure went through the roof, she couldnt see and she couldnt breath and it took them 30 mins to sort her out, when she came round she said she thought she was going to die

Thankfully they were prepared for it today and sedated her so it wasn't so frightening for her and now she has six more days of normal chemo then the Bone marrow transplant.

Please keep sharing so that at least one of there problems is made easier

Thank you to all that have donated.

Hi it’s been a while since I updated just realised that there is only 3 days left so thought I would do it before the time runs out. Candice was doing really well doctors were really pleased with her. Now though she has not been too well the last few days and the news was not as we hoped on Monday at the hospital. Hopefully tomorrow’s appointment will shed some light on things as she always sees a specialist on Wednesdays. Tiny was really down earlier I think he feels like they take one step forwards and two steps back. I will be back there on Saturday again to make sure they are both getting some rest. Candice said to thank every one for there support and donations.

Hi sorry it’s been a while. I have just come back from spending a few dats with tony and Candice. She is still doing really well, has a bit of a problem with liver and kidneys but between them they are all keeping on top of it. They both looked really worn out so I made them spend most of the time I was there in bed resting. They did seem in better spirits when I left. I am so proud of them both its a real struggle for them Some days but they keep going and the doctors say they are really happy with candice and how strong she is.

Really bad day today but for tony instead of Candice he was going to asda on his bike and some one knocked him off and then kept going. There is a witness who chased the guy but didn’t catch him although he was a really good guy he called an ambulance and stayed with tony then went to the hospital with him. Tony was knocked out and panicking because he was only going to about 20 mins, then at the hospital he realised he had lost his phone and the shopping money so couldn’t let Candice know. He was in a right mess. The good news in apart from being badly shaken up and worried he is ok. The guy put his bike in the back of his van and took tony home after the hospital. There are not to many like him around now so I want to thank him from the bottom of my heart.

We have extended this for another month because Tony said with all the people following and Candice still being so ill that it was a way to keep people updated with what’s going on, can you all please keep sharing as I know Candice reads all the updates when she is well enough.

Hi thought we would post a message as it’s coming to an end. Tony and Candice want to thank everyone that has donated and shared and made there life’s a little easier. It’s a very long road and very slow going but there is progress and light at the end of the tunnel. With Tony’s love and support, caring for her around the clock I know in my heart that she will get stronger. Thank you

Tony asked me to share this message to you all so here goes. Things don’t seem to be getting any better but the hospital did say it would take 6 months to a year before life got easier for Candice. Living so far away from family makes it harder for us as we don’t have any help unless my mum comes down and she does as often as she can, I am up most of the night looking after Candice and our little dinks it’s 24/7 and I just hope we get through this and Candice gets well. We know life will never be as it was as she will have to be on Meds for the rest of her life but for now we just have to concentrate on her staying infection free and making sure she eats and drinks with plenty of rest. The doctor said it’s a 55 per cent chance of us getting past 2 years, our first goal is 100 days then 400 days then the 2 years. I would like to thank you all for your support and donations it’s been a real struggle financially and it’s really helped out with all th

Things just seem to be getting tougher and tougher for Candice. It’s such a struggle going to the hospital because of the distance yet she has no choice. She had a bad day yesterday it took a few hours before she could get out of bed, tony was in bits as she is so weak and emotional. He is holding it together but it really is so hard for them both. Then today because she wasn’t quite ready when the car turned up for the hospital and they went to get it the car had gone. I thought these people were supposed to be compassionate, understanding instead she just couldn’t stop crying. Then the only one she could get was even more money. When you read all the help that’s there for people with illnesses like this it doesn’t quite work out like that. She has very few people she can rely on thanks god for Tony, he would do everything for her for ever if that’s what it took.

Candice has been to the hospital everyday but Sunday. She is totally worn out when she gets back Tony said all she wants to do is sleep. They are having a really hard time right now, he baths her sorts her medication out and food makes sure she drinks a lot, the hospital don’t tell them much as an out patient your just in then home it really is a worry for them, let’s just hope things improve for her and she gets stronger.

Poor Candice the hospital told her to take an over night bag as her results are not very good. Then she spends all day there having treatment and then they send her home. She doesn’t know what’s going on at the moment, she has enough to worry about and they just keep adding the pressure. Back to Torbay hospital tomorrow the derriford on Monday. Hopefully she will get told exactly what’s happening.

Well she is home and they are all happy with that. She has a problem with her kidneys so she is back as an out patient tomorrow, the hospital called her tonight to tell her how much she has to drink before her appointment, tony has been shopping for all the bits she needs and lots of bottles of juice. Hopefully even with 3 outpatients appointments a week they will get time to enjoy her being home.
