Good Day everyone!
I am Laila Catapang, meet my husband Adrian Henry Imperial Catapang a Chronic Kidney Disease warrior.He was diagnosed with CKD end stage secodary to acute Glumerulonephritis last 0ctober 2015. Few months after our wedding, adrian decided to go back work as an Ofw.On his medical result it shows that his both kidneys were small. Hindi po sya pinayagan ng company na maka alis ng bansa unless maka kuha sya ng work clearance at payagan sya ng nephrologist. We look for a second opinion, humanap kami ng nephrologist, at nag simula ang check up at laboratories nya. The doctor explained to us his condition, Adrian has a Chronic Kidney Disease secondary to acute Glumerulonephritis at hindi sya allowed makapag abroad. Simula noon, dito na muna sya nag work s pinas, habang nag gagamot.Monthly laboratories and check up.Nag advise ang nephro nya na mag ready kami dahil sooner or later mauuwi sa dialysis.Or kung may mahahanap kaming donor ay kidney transplant na agad para maiwasan na ang dialysis. Willing ang mga kapatid nya mag donate kung sino man ang magma match but we dont have enough fund for the operation. Hanggang nung February 2017 his kidney gotten worse, we rushed him to hospital and eventually he has to undergo an emergency dialysis dahil umabot na ng 2,300 ang creatinine nya. Noon ko lang sya nakita ng ganun ka hina ang katawan, tulala at halos hindi nag sasalita. Bilang asawa, alam ko na mahirap tanggapin yong kalagayan nya dahil biglang gumuho ang mga pangarap nya para sa future namin at lalung lalo na sa anak namin. Mahirap tanggapin yong alam mo na life time na ang dialysis treatment at napaka mahal din. Ngunit sa prayers, pang unawa at pag mamahal ng family ay unti unti nyang natutunan tanggapin ang lahat. Treatment option is very limited, ang lifetime dialysis or kidney transplant. Sa ngayon ay 2 years and 5 months na sya nag dadialysis, 3x a week for 4 hrs.every session. Napaka hirap po ng sitwasyon ng isang Ckd maraming bawal lalung lalo na sa pagkain at tubig. At lalo na pong napaka hirap din pag dating s financial.
Kidney transplant would offer him more freedom and ability to live longer,healthier and more normal life. A transplant would also give him more time to do thing he enjoyed most like spending time with our 3 years old son.
Luckily he has already a kidney donor. His younger sister Kimberly Ann is very much willing to donate her kidney to save her brothers life and give more years to live. Yes, we are very lucky and thankful dahil match po sila.
Kidney transplant will cost almost a million peso, which we cannot afford. Gustuhin man po namin maipa transplant agad si adrian ngunit wala po kaming sapat na halaga. Buong pamilya po namin ay kumakatok sa inyong mga puso upang humingi ng tulong. Please help him on his journey to kidney transplant. Any amount will be a very big help. We are hoping ang praying for your help.
Ngayon pa lang po ay lubos na kaming nagpapa salamat sa inyo. Thank you and God bless.
