For a while, there was depression and desperation after Pyro's surgery because his doctors strongly recommended that he undergo radaiation treatments which would cost as much as his 2nd surgery.
We're only middle-class... and we've already spent a lot on my nephew's treatments. And it's really been exhausting to spend so much and see him in pain and still not know when and how this will all end.
Add to that the fact that the health and medical system here sucks... but I won't rant about that anymore since i've already cried to friends about it... and I am still able to be grateful because we're not among the POOR who know nothing and have nothing to spend on their own health problems.
Anyway, Pyro was masungit after his surgery. But he's continued to thrive. Though thin, he's not small (in height) for his age. His overall development doesn't seem to have been that compromised.
He's turning 3 years old soon. A friend of mine already sent him an advanced birthday gift :) Typically, he's requesting for a Jollibee birthday but since his radiation treatments would be every day for 30 days... and the expense of the treatments and the logistics of bringing him to St. Luke's everyday... we're still not sure if we can throw him that kind of party.
But I know he'd be happy in his own way on that day... after all, he's growing hair again :)
