Just a year ago, my wife and I just gone through so much after losing our first baby,
We were very much devastated because we wanted nothing in this world except to be good parents.
So we were so glad after we found out that my wife got pregnant for our second one. We promised that we will do our best to keep that baby safe coz that's what we are dreaming of, to have a happy family
And just recently, last 29th of October, she gave birth to a boy through cesarean session. We burst into tears that finally what we were waiting for is here already as part of our reality. we were too happy. But not too long, that happiness turned to anxiousness. The doctor said that our child might have developed a CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE and therefore put into strict supervision. His heartbeat was in irregular rhythm and breathing was so weak.
He's been observed for a day, then in the late evening, the doctor rushed to the hospital saying that our child has to be transferred right away. The doctor had a wrong diagnosis. The child has PERSISTENT PULMONARY HYPERTENSION OF NEW BORN where failure of normal circulation accurs after he left the womb.
After few hours of transit, the receiving doctor said that the child was almost gone, just an hour more of delay might caused his death. His color was not normal already and his breathing got more weaker. The doctor said that it would be a fifty-fifty chance to save him.
I can do nothing but cry alone because I am too far away from them.
He is currently admitted in the local hospital in Subic Bay Port, Olangapo Philippines wherein his life is only depending on the ventilation machine and sets of medicine.
The admission required us to prepare 100,000 Php (2000 USD) for every 1-3 days of his stay in Nursery Intensive Care Unit and the treatment duration is still indefinite which may involve a large sum of money.
Due to my incapability as his father to provide support, I am humbly asking for your help to prolong his life.
I know that others may say I am useless and shameless, but I mustered all my might to say it all here.
I would beg if I have to. I believe that some of you will understand since most of you are standing on the same shoes as I am, the shoes of a father, a parent. A parent that will do everthing for the sake of his child, most especially if his/her life is at stake.
I will be forever indebted of your utmost generosity and benevolence.
May the Good Lord Bless you a thousand fold.
