at last…an update!

i’m still alive. thank GOD!

i’ve been wanting to update this blog since last week but i couldn’t convince my oncologist to have the laptop brought inside my room. so for today, i’ve actually forced my baby sister to sneak the laptop inside so i could go online and do this update.  🙂

there are so many things that i want to write in here but i don’t really have the luxury of time. so let me first say thank you to those who prayed for me, who made a blog for me, sent me sms, supported me financially, mentally and spiritually, friends who journeyed with me in this very difficult phase, my family, online friends and strangers—-everybody…..words are not enough to express my deepest appreciation. thank you so much. God bless all of you.

i’m still under intensive/repeated treatment. my hickman line was reinstalled and I’ve finished 3 rounds of chemo. the doctors gave me a chemo-break for 2 weeks and had me undergo some tests so that they can do the pre-assessment. i will then continue to finish 3 more chemo sessions by next week and when i’m done with it, proceed to undergo 10 sessions of radiation therapy.  

i’m still not that well. i feel weird and look weird 🙂 i’m still unable to understand how come my body will change from “feeling good to feeling weak” in such a short span of time. my colon had infection and they had to treat me with high dose of antibiotics. i can’t eat that much and still can’t walk without my cane. and what’s worst, i’ve been getting blood transfusions every now and then.

tomorrow, i’ll have a sperm count test to determine the condition of my reproductive system. i don’t know what to feel really 🙂 i’m nervous and uncomfortable at the same time. please do continue to pray for me.

i’ll give more updates soon. i’m still in “isolation” as my family won’t still allow that much visitors because i’m still vulnerable to infections. i’m actually on clinical trial right now and my hopes are hight that i’ll be able to finish my treatment and will get remission this time.

again, in behalf of my family, thank you to those who prayed for me, supported me and showered me with their love during this phase of my treatment. please do keep those prayers coming. God bless all of you.

    Lexxxxxxx! O ang daming x nyan ah! 😛 Sorry I wasn’t able to reply to your SMS last night. I was asleep. 😦 It’s soooo nice to hear from you again. We’ve missed you soooo much. Hopefully when you’re out of isolation, I’ll be able to visit you na. Wag ka mag alala, binabantayan namin tong blog mo lagi. Mga “taong bahay” mo kami. Nga pala, CONGRATULATIONS for being WPP’s Blogger of the Week. You deserve it. Actually madami ako gusto pa sabihin sa yo kaso baka maging mas mahaba pa comment ko kesa sa entry mo. Hehehe! Pero eto, I’ve come to admire you more now kasi dude, ang lakas mo! Kinakaya mo lahat ng ito with unwavering faith and with a hopeful heart. I’m so proud of you. Pagaling ka. Stay strong. Stay pogi. You’ll always be in our prayers… 🙂

    P.S. You sneaked in a laptop inside your room??? Parang Mission Impossible ah! Ang galeng! 😛
