Current Situation

This blog is produced and dedicated to Wennie Hong, who, through a series of events and changes, is currently enrolled in Children's Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle. Throughout her life, she has been dedicated to the well being of others, with an emphasis on those less fortunate and now it is our turn to show that we care through support, however minute it may be.

For about 4 months now, she has been through a lot of physical ailments, including having her appendix removed, having her wisdom teeth pulled out, and food poisoning. Recently she was complaining of dizziness and nausea. Originally misdiagnosed as Vertigo, Wennie went through several accounts of visits to different doctors finally being admitted in Valley Medical Center in Renton, WA. It was Friday July 11th that I got news that it was quite possible a tumor was evident in her case. Since then her condition changed drastically, everyday she became more immobile. We eventually got her admittance into Children's Hospital where she is located currently Monday, July 14th, after she had stopped breathing on her own. Though not officially diagnosed, her doctors are 95% sure that Wennie has brainstem glioma. We're very fortunate to have a helpful panel of doctors on her case and are very happy to have had her transfer to Children's, however we still need your support and good wishes towards Wennie.

We almost have the same name. We cannot be too different from each other. You're just so much braver :)

Came across your blog. Hope you are all well now. Myself have been through all the same situation like you. Mind , Glomus Jagulare Tumor . Operated in 2006, but sadly, the doctor found another tumor when I went for regular MRI scan last month. But I have not decided whether to do it or not. May God Bless You ....
