Genique's Recovery

In March 2016 our daughter, Genique, was diagnosed with a brain tumor growing from the optic nerve. It's called a Pilocytic Astrocytoma, but she calls it her "mushroom". On 31 Aug 2016, Dr Charlie Teo removed 85-90% of the tumour. Unfortunately Genique's vision was severely affected by the tumour. This blog is about her recovery and the challenges our family face daily. My Story / Video Story

Thanks for the Prayers

For those who missed our Facebook update 24 Sep at 18:10 (Perth time)…

First of all we want to say God is good, all the time!

Thank you for praying with us and sending us all the positive and good vibes!

Genique is doing so much better.
They reduced the steroids since yesterday and she is on half the fluids she was on.
Dr said we can start oral steroids tomorrow and hopefully get rid of the drip too!
She is managing her fluids much better but still needs a tablet to help keep her sodium levels down.

She did a MRI yesterday and it shows there is still a lot of swelling and that the gland regulating the fluids is not as bright as it is supposed to be.
This explains why she is having trouble with the fluid regulation.

So we still need prayers or positive vibes for that bright spot to be bright again and her vision to improve.”

Again, thanx for the support all around the world.

You guys are not only changing Genique’s life but also have a big impact on ours.

Ruan & Sylvia.
