LakelynStrong

on May 10th 2019 is the day my life changed forever. i was on my way to pick lakelyn around 9:00pm when her father called and said lakelyn threw up really bad make sure her milk isn’t expired ( which it wasn’t ) he came outside and put lakelyn in car I sat in the back seat with her. I notice that her right eye was very droopy and she kept twitching her right leg and arm. I took her out of her car seat it sounded like my baby was having a hard time breathing I told my mother  who was driving that something is wrong she need go to emergency  straight to emergency we went. When we arrived they rushed us straight to the back where they did all these test and a CT scan was done. That’s when they seen that she had bleeding on the brain. So from there lakelyn was transported to Children’s Hospital Of Michigan where doctors looked at the CT scan from the first hospital. I took her to and said that she’s going to need surgery to help relief some of the pressure off her brain. so from there something called an EVD was placed on the opposite side of her head. After surgery doctors came in and talked to me and my family about what it may be,but it was hard to tell due to the amount of bleeding on the brain.I was also informed that the twitching  movements she was doing were actually seizures. May 13th lakelyn had a major surgery that took a little over 6 hours where they found that she had a tumor growing on her brain Dr.Marupudi and her team was able to removed 95% of the tumor. After surgery Dr.Marupudi said that the tumor was a type of cancer she just didn’t know what type just yet. After surgery lakelyn was still having seizure here and there. They decided to put her on a machine called an EEG where it can monitor her brain activity to see if she was having Subclinical Seizures ( not noticeable)which  she was.They gave her some seizure medicine which helped and lakelyn haven’t had a seizure within the last few days. May 17 2019 the oncology came in to talk to me and my family to inform us that the tumor was cancer and the type is glioblastoma stage 4. she told us that by lakelyn being so young ( 3 months)her and the other doctors were going to talk about what is going to be lakelyn next step. As of now we just wait lakelyn have been doing so good they have removed the breathing tube she has been up and alert. I made this  go fund me account because a lot of people have been asking is there anything that they can do to help.As of now I don’t know just yet because we don’t know exactly what lakelyn recovery process is going to be but I know for sure it’s going to be a long road to recovery. Anything that is donated will towards lakelyn medical needs it will also help my mommy who is also unable to work right now due to my illness ‍
