i’m still here….

I heard a rumor

And its about me

There’s this SMS circulating among my close friends and relatives  telling  them that I died on December 10 due to complications……

The rumor will remain a rumor for now ‘coz  I’m still here…….alive, breathing and busy smooching my rainbow……..opps

Well, I think its about time that I do some updates…..

  • I had my bone marrow biopsy last December 6. I still don’t have the results but I’m praying and trying to be positive about it. I took a picture of the needles and got scared afterwards. he he he.


  • I had my pulmonary test last week—-another prerequisite for the transplant. I was told that its a standard test designed to measure my lung capacity. I’m proud to say that I got good results from that test. yipee! It really pays to be a non-smoker!
  • Finally, I got my transplant scheduled. I’ll be going back to the hospital to undergo sessions of chemotherapy for three days then another three days of radiation. A week after that, the transplant will begin. I will be staying at the hospital for 30 days after the transplant and then spend the remaining 70 days at home. I’m a little scared but I’m holding on to God’s promise that He will never leave me nor forsake.

I think that’s all for now. I’m chillin’ and sleepy. I better hit the sack now. My rainbow’s tucking me to bed. Yahoooo!

    Dear Lex,

    People are really mean and heartless most of the time. Know what? I’ll just wish whoever started that nasty rumor eh ma-karma sana. You don’t get mad at this kind of scum, dear. You get even.

    Take care, my friend. Stay cool.

    lex: thanks ella. merry christmas. God bless.

    Long time no hear Lex, Medyo tumigil na rin ako sa pagsusulat dahil busy sa trabaho. Sana naman ay maging maayos na ang lahat matapos ang iyong operasyon. Ang pamangkin kong si Nicole ay may 10 months pa na chemo. Pero makulit na siya ngayon at magsisimula na siyang pumasok na salimpusa sa eskwela. We are still praying for you. Ingat ka palagi bro, yang mga SMS na yan eh wala lang magawa sa buhay. Marami ka pang maiinspire sa mundo. Apir!

    lex: kumusta bro? merry christmas. give my warm hugs to nicole. God bless.

    I’ve experience also that kind of situation. Imagine one morning a brethren from your church will say condolence to you saying that your father died heart attack daw without us knowing? I just answer them, hindi ko po alam…but we got scared also…
