Baby Apollo Needs Your Help!

Update posted by Ruby Lim On May 08, 2018

Our hearts are full for the generosity you have extended to our little warrior. God is indeed pleased with you. However, it is with deep sadness to let you know that Apollo has gone to heaven early this morning at around 3AM. He was revived twice last night, first at around 7:20PM and another at around 11:30PM. Unfortunately, he could no longer take the pain he was in and eventually chose to be in Jesus' arms. This little warrior fought a good battle.

Apollo and his family are now back in Tarlac City. He will be laid to rest on Thursday, May 10.

On behalf of the family, we would like to thank you for being a channel of blessing throughout the month-long fight. His broken heart was able to touch many and made them full, and for that we are forever grateful.

God's blessings be upon you and your household!

Apollo, The Little Angel

Yesterday, May 6, marked Apollo's 1 month of being in the hospital. We were not able to give updates from April 20, so here we'll give our prayer warriors and generous givers some updates on his roller-coaster ride since the last update.

Apollo has been transferred to the PICU end of April. He is currently in critical condition but his stats are stable. A central line was put below his neck few days ago as they could no longer find IV lines because his veins had gotten weak.

Unfortunately, the schedule for his operation is taking awhile as his body has been weak and doctors need him to be stronger first. The arterial switch needs to be done before he turns 3 months old on June 12. If the arterial switch is too big of an operation for his little body, doctors will be doing a series of other procedures to prolong his life until he is ready for the major open heart surgery.

We currently need blood donors in preparation for the surgery. You may head over to PGH from 6am-4pm, Monday to Sunday. Please note that there are plenty of donors every Saturday and Sunday, if you are planning to go during the weekend, do come early.

Also, we are short of approximately PHP 150,000 for the upcoming procedures. But we are hopeful and doing all that we can to raise the funds.

We would greatly appreciate for a sea of people to pray over Apollo because we strongly believe in the power of prayers over anything else. He is a little but strong fighter -- that we can assure you! God bless! :)

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!
