Stephanie has been in and out of the ICU multiple times over the last few months she was admitted again a week ago, the doctors have discovered a rare form of cancer that is transmitted through her vascular system. She had to start Chemo today.
From Stephanie’s Facebook:
I have a very rare form of cancer that has been responsible for all these bleeds. It’s a vascular cancer so it can go anywhere. It has already attacked my lungs and liver and it looks like my brain was next. I had a port put in my chest on Friday. I will be going through an intensive chemo treatment. Good thing is, this type of cancer responds well to chemo, bad thing is, I’m at high risk for internal bleeding while being treated. I’ll be starting today, with a low dose that (if my body takes it well) will increase in the next week or two. I will have treatments every week. I will also be having scans done frequently to watch my already weakened vessels. Since I’m high risk, I will be in the ICU for most of my treatment.
Things to be praying for:
**God’s grace and protection as He goes before us.
**That I would have no internal bleeding during treatment.
**That my brain would be protected and I wouldn’t need radiation included.
**Strength. I had five procedures/surgeries in less than a week and only three meals. So I’m still healing and very weak and under weight.
**That our kiddos wouldn’t have fear about mommy and that our family would have help and support in caring for them.
Very thankful for all the support and prayers we’ve had so far. It means a lot to us! ❤️
