Baby Ethan went for a procedure for insertion of CVL (Central Venous Line) yesterday at SJMC. The purpose of the CVL is to save Baby Ethan from having to be poked and prodded on his hands or legs for an IV line each time he goes for chemotherapy.
Looking at this picture here brought me a flood of memories on Cass when she was hospitalized for 3 weeks at GMC Penang after her surgeries. Due to an unfortunate complication, her gut was kinked and she could not eat or drink for 3 weeks. Her surgeon also inserted a CVL near her collar bone so that liquid nutrients (TPN – total parenteral nutrition) could be fed to her intravenously.
This is Baby Ethan after the CVL procedure in the OT yesterday (1 July 2015). He’s a tough little soldier!
2/7/2015 : Picture above shows Baby Ethan’s 1st chemo through the CVL line – no more poking!
Kindly continue to pray for Baby Ethan’s full recovery. Pray that each of his chemo session will cause minimal or no discomfort. Pray that he will be able to fight Leukemia and continue to live like any other normal child would. And pray that God grants Ethan’s mother, Mary Anne (she’s a single parent) with a ton of strength to grapple with the situation.
For those of you who would still like to donate towards Ethan’s Medical Funds, you may send a Whatsapp message to my friend, Mary Anne Loh at 010-220 4123.
Mary Ann Loh’s MBB account number is 1143 9318 6527
No amount is a small amount. A little contribution from everyone would add up to a big amount and this would help to ease Mary Anne’s financial burden.
Thank you for your generosity! 🙂
