Baby Dmitri’s Medical Expenses

Update posted by Rowena Capuyan On Sep 20, 2017

Our baby Dmitri will need to stay in the hospital for another 5 weeks :( His Birthday is on October 4, Wednesday.

Last Monday night, he was rushed to the operating room because they need to insert the dextrose through a cut-down (cut the skin) in his thigh. The veins in his arms and feet are not visible anymore. His arms and feet are already full of bruises...



They already did a cut-down in his neck but it didn't work because his veins were too small. We need the dextrose so that all the antibiotics and other medicines can be given to him..

Below is his new cut-down at the thigh area...hopefully the dextrose will not be aligned so that Dmitri can already be given his antiobiotics.

The neuro doctor advised Dmitri's mom that they need to observe him for another 5 weeks.

Dmitri has high fever, severe cough and has a low heart rate. The doctors advised her mom that they might put a tube on Dmitri to help him with his breathing. His pediatrician is giving him another set of antibiotics.

Also, Dmitri will go back to the operating room today because the cut in his head (where the tube is inserted) is already SWOLLEN, so they need to repeat the procedure :( Also, only a small amount of pus was drained in his head. Dmitri will undergo "again" all the laboratory tests.

Lord Jesus, we raise Dmitri to you..we are praying that he gets well soon...

Dmitri is now stable. The tube is still in his head and hopefully all the pus/"nana" will be drained as soon as possible... I have cropped the pictures of our baby Dmitri in this update.... the doctors needed to shave all the hair in his head so there will be no infections......but he is still very handsome :)

Thank you for all the help and prayers...we are asking you to please continue to pray for him...his treatment will not be over soon...it's a long and a very expensive one. Let's pray that their family will have the strength to go through with it and for Dmitri to stay strong and endure every pain he feels.

We love you baby Dmitri

Hi Everyone. Please continue to pray for Dmitri especially now...he is currently inside the operating room and the doctors are performing the shunt removal procedure. After removal of the shunt, a tube will be inserted in his head to drain the "nana"/pus...the tube remain inserted for a few days/weeks until all puss is drained.

Let's all pray for him and her mom to be strong and hope Dmitri will endure the painful procedure...we love you Dmitri..

The Shunt removal procedure on Dmitri's will be done either this week or next week...the family is just waiting for the clearance from the pulmonologist. After removing the shunt, they will insert a tube in Dimdim's head to drain the Pus ("nana") in his brain. The tube will remain in his head until all pus are totally drained & removed. They have been trying to remove the pus for the past 2 weeks already, please see below picture, but when they did the CT scan this week, it turned out that only 1/4 of the pus was drained. The color is already orange-reddish because of the combination of blood and pus.


Below is a picture of the shunt in his belly (shunt connected to his head) - according to the doctor, shunt is already soiled so it needs to be replaced soon.



Once the pus is fully drained from his head/brain, another operation will be performed to place a new Shunt,

Let us all please pray for Dmitri. He is a very brave boy.

Thank you for all your help and prayers.

Christine and Dmitri
