Baby Apollo Needs Your Help!

Update posted by Ruby Lim On Apr 19, 2018

Today marks baby Apollo's 13th day at the hospital...

April 13 to 14 - His fever continued, milk feeding stopped as he needed breastmilk (his mom's breastmilk was not enough she could only produce 10ml, he needed at least 30ml)

April 15 - No more fever, imbalanced electrolytes in his body, mild lung problem due to the pneumonia, repeat CT scan resulted to blood found in his brain which needed to be drained out so he was referred to a neuro, not enough oxygen flowing in his blood, repeat 2D echo was performed and resulted fine. Asked to be transferred to Pedia ICU (PICU) for closer monitoring. He was put on waiting list for vacancy.

April 16 - EEG was performed, breastmilk feeding was allowed at 10ml (we asked for donations!), overall Apollo was improving from yesterday's scare!

April 17 - Apollo was highly responsive and active today! :) Breastmilk feeding increased to 30-40ml every 2 hours.

April 18 - Close monitoring continued for his progress, breastmilk feeding continued.

April 19 - Running out of breastmilk today, but hooray to donations! Supposed to be transferred to PICU tonight but was moved to tomorrow instead. Mild fever due to the many needles inserted trying to find the IV line doctors said (intravenous insertion).

Special thanks to those who donated their breastmilk to Apollo as it makes him stronger! Ria Burgos, Marge Galvez, and Saab Magalona -- big help to his improvement!! <3

To those who continue to support Apollo financially and in service, we are forever grateful to you. May God be the one to reward your generous hearts. We are humbly asking for you to keep him in your prayers as we need him strong and healthy in order to get ready for his major surgery. He needs it done and we still need your help for him to get through all of this. Again, thank you soooo much! :D

So, what has been Apollos' progress over the last 3 days?

April 10 - His x-ray result was clear! After 3 long days, he was finally allowed to be fed 20ml of milk (through the tube). Fluid from his spine was also taken for testing on this day (no result yet).

April 11 - His feeding through the tube was increased from 20ml to 40ml, IV has since been removed, CT scan result is clear!

April 12 - Apollo is currently having a high fever with temp. ranging from 38-39 since this afternoon. Milk feeding was reduced to 30ml.

We are still waiting for his doctors' advise regarding his major operation. Doctor mentioned that it needs to be done within 2 weeks from now given that he is clear from any other infections or complications. Right now he still has his phlegm due to his acquired pneumonia.

To all of the generous hearts who are praying for Apollo and to those who gave their donations these past days, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Thank you for allowing God to use you to help Apollo and his family overcome this. Please continue to pray for Apollo's healing and provision for the family. We will keep you posted on his condition. God bless!
