Born on November 1, 2016, at 34 weeks 5 days, weighing 1.76kg, Sky is currently at the neonatal intensive care unit of a hospital in Manila. She was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart defect which necessitates immediate care and rigorous medical attention. According to the doctors, this condition can only be corrected through surgery.
Sky is the first one to be born alive to her mother after three unsuccessful pregnancies in the span of 10 years of marriage. It was on the third pregnancy that Sky's mother was diagnosed with Anti-Phospolipid Antibody Syndrome (APAS), with high levels of natural killer cells , and Leukocyte antibody negative crossmatch.
The entire duration of pregnancy was a challenging journey for Sky and her mother, who had to undergo several treatments and therapies to sustain her and keep her alive in the womb. Her parents practically spent a fortune just to ensure her safety, with much anticipation that they would soon behold their much awaited child.
Way ahead of schedule, the mother was admitted to the High Risk Pregnancy Unit of SLMC-GC to have an emergency C-section because the baby showed poor heartbeat and the mother has preeclampsia and APAS complications threatening her life and the baby’s. By the grace of God, Sky was born.
While Sky's condition has stabilized, she still needs continuous medical attention and proper care to address prematurity and gastric bleeding caused by very low platelet count & clotting abnormalities.
As of this writing, her hospital bill has mounted. The family is in dire need financially because they have exhausted their resources during the course of pregnancy and they did not expect that Sky would have this condition.
That being said, we would like to reach out to your good hearts for any amount that could help us pay Sky's hospital bills, which keep on mounting as days go by.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
Please pray with us for Sky's healing and fast recovery.
