Stars in the Brain! – Astrocytomas Brain Cancer Stage 3

Update posted by Devy Kandani On May 23, 2019

After back and forth to the hospital for the 6th times, last week Manuel was admitted to the hospital for the Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) to prevent more aspiration using Nasogastric Feeding Tube (NGT). He had to stay 8 days due to failed attempt inserting using endoscopy procedure. His abdomen muscle plus layer of fat make it too thick for the tube to get into the colon, so they have to do it through surgery. So he had to stay extra 3 days after the surgery to make sure there is no complication also they have to feed him gradually. Thank God the surgery went well and no complication during the healing process. He started his physiotherapy after the surgery. They started to put him in the gym to make him stand using tilting table so he can feel the sensation of touching the floor.

After going home, we pray for the healing process continue to go well. His skin area of the tube got irritated but we hope it doesn't get infected. He is still adapting using the tube.

By the end of the month they are planning to do the MRI post chemo and radiation. Please pray for the best result and there is no need to have more chemotherapy. Pray that the cancer cell will stop growing and the tumor keep shrinking and his nervous system starting to function, especially his right arm and leg.

Christine and family thanking everybody that has been part of this journey, donating and praying. It meant a lot to them as they are going through the toughest time in life.

Dear Manuel & Christine. We have been praying for both of you. May the Lord continue to be your strength and hope. Much love & blessing from Wieky, Quina & Family When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. (Isaiah 43:2 ESV)
