On Friday morning. September 28, Angelina went in to have her central line removed. That same day (and for days beforehand) she complained about a pain in her abdomen. Mom and dad demanded an ultrasound, and that is when doctors discovered that the cancer had returned in the form of three tumors–one on her liver (9 cm), one on her lungs (3 cm) and one on her kidney (3 cm).
Doctors at the hospital where she has been treated the last 13 months said there was nothing else they could do for her. They recommended that the family find a new facility. So we did.
Angelina is in a specialized hospital for children with cancer. All day yesterday and today, she’s been dragged through the same initial prodding and poking that she endured back when we first discovered she had cancer in August 2011.
THANKFULLY, she has the gene required for her to receive a new kind of chemotherapy. After receiving radiation therapy to help shrink her largest tumor, she is right now fully sedated with tape on her eyes and tubes in her mouth.
Doctors and nurses have to get Angelina to breathe on her own before they can continue to help her.
THANK GOD she has this specific gene! THANK GOD doctors are working fast to help her. THANK you for praying. Keep praying! Ask God for full healing–supernaturally or naturally, whichever comes first!!
We will keep you all posted. THANK you for caring!!
