Hailey fight against with cancer.
It is a nightmare for our family starting the month of March. Hailey stomach have been increased dramatically and hard. We visited the PCP 3 times within a week. Our PCP keep saying that she had gas in her stomach.
She had never shown any signs of discomfort or pain; she's been a happy child playing, laughing and running. Suddenly, She had no appetite and sleep only. At last,We decided to go straight to the ER. X-ray, Ultrasound, Biopsy and Sonogram have been tested. Dr said that she have a tumor (cancer ) in her stomach, kidney and bone marrow.
It's devastating news that no parents want to hear. Especially for 2 1/2 yrs old girl. The most heartbreaking news is that we are in the hospital (ER) for 2 days and Dr told us in the morning said her kidney without any function and her body are puffy. She needed to dialysis at the same day. Hailey have to transfer to another hospital to received the treatment. At the same time we heard the Dr said she had Burkitt's Lymphoma . No symptoms from family history and it is faster growing , During the time we wait for ambulance, It is very sad as a parent that we can not do anything at all to help her.
Once we transfer to the other hospital, Hailey go straight to the ICU and surgery immediately for her kidney. We spend 2 weeks at the ICU. On 28 of March, She started her 1st chemotherapy .
According to Oncology Dr said, Hailey will have to undergo 12 -15 months of chemo and spend overnight at the hospital from time to time to complete the treatment.
I am taking a long period unpaid leave to take caring our daughter with my wife 24/7. I could only work very limited hours in the near future,
Because of unforeseeable long way
of cancer treatment for my little one. It is really hard for me to leave my only child,When I know she is very sick and try to stay with her more often.
Treating Hailey's condition and helping her recover will require
significant shifts in my employments, Such as, Transportation, housing, and lifestyle, Also the food we eat right now has to benefit to Hailey condition and we will try and safe therapy to help her fight the cancer
and reduce the chemo side effect.
All fund that we raised will be used to help our family face the financial hardships as well as all the unanticipated cost that have come from the cancer treatment for Hailey. Every little help can change
At last, All prayer will be the most important thing for Hailey to battle
According from her lab result from yersterday, WBC are lower than our expectation. Doctor told us that it takes some time to be back to normal due to the intensive chemo on her body. Also, Her IGG level
As we discussed with the doctor on her current body condition. Appointment have been schedule for her ECHO and EKG for next month, Also, ENT, Vision and dental. It is so much happenning in her life after cancer.
She will have another set of lab done next visit. Hopefully, She doesn't need IVIG infusion . Becuase it will takes at least 6-8 hours in the hospital. Also, It is painful to see her to set up a central line after her long battle for cancer. She will scream and cry every time when she saw the nurse are prepared the needle, gloves and bandaid. We will continue to ask to keep her in your prays and support.
Hailey's IgG level and blood work still below the average. We have to visit the hospital each month. It takes 6-7 hour to complete the IVIG infusion each time. She can't go to school yet for now because her body will get infection or virus easier compare with other kids.We wish her can be back to her normal life again.
She will visit the hospital for a PT Scan on March 08. It is very important for her with Burkitts Lyphoma within the first 3 years. We
hope all the result are all negative. We dont mind to traveling back and forth to the Hospital frequently. We will feel much better if she can go thurs all the process. Please continue to pray for Hailey. She have been so strong through it all and keep her in your mind. We thank you all for your continue support.
She is playful but tired easily. She have to follow up with the Doctor once a month and monitor her IGG because her immune system are lower then what we epxected. It might takes up to 8-12 month for IVIG infusion to boots up.
Again, We want to thank you all for all your support. We appreciate all that everyone has done for our family. We wish you all MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR.
You are in our prayers Hailey. May God heals you and takes away all your pains and discomfort. Pray that bone marrow scan result will be good tomorrow. Add oil!
