Battle with Gastroschisis; Fight with Baby Eika

Update posted by Imelda Tolentino On Oct 07, 2016

Finally!!! After several times of deferment, it's Eika's big day again tomorrow. It's her 3rd surgery tomorrow 10/7/2016 at 4pm PH Time. Let's all pray that this will be the last. Please join us in prayers for her stability all through out, for the doctors, and for us, her parents.

Eika is such a brave little warrior. I don't know how she can handle everything, but one thing is for sure, God has got her back! God is so amazing!

Day 28 at NICU

It was a rough week for Baby Eika. She contracted an infection for more than a week now and it made her platelet count go down. For more than a week her platelet count ranged from 20-40. They did blood tests and platelet tranfusions plus the antibiotics almost everyday but still we didn't see any change. It was frustrating.

However, she is clinically stable, she is active and her vital signs are perfect. Her surgery that was intended to finally close her stomach has now been deferred four time as it is very risky to do the surgery with a low platelet count.

They shifted to a new antibiotic last Wednesday and we prayed hard for it to work this time. Her lab tests finally arrived at the NICU earlier today, and it shows that her platelet count jumped from 39 to 117!!! Praise God!!! It was chilling. All the doctors and nurses are celebrating with us. I was crying tears of joy. Thank You Lord!!! For now, we are waiting for the schedule of her 3rd surgery!! Keep on praying for our brave little girl Eika

translated from Krister's FB account) Day 17 in NICU #FightWithEika

Eika's 3rd surgery that was scheduled tomorrow is now postponed as I was really doubtful of her blood tests. I prayed for it and listened to my instincts. It is as if God is whispering to me and telling me not to sign the consent. Then the doctors eventually agreed that we weigh out the risks before proceeding with the surgery. Even if there was blood available for transfusion for her in case we pushed through with the surgery, they wanted to be more certain as they told me that the case is life threatening had we proceeded with the surgery. Thank You Lord!!!

Praying that her lab tests tomorrow will have good results so we can proceed with the operation on Wednesday and for the risks to be lower. We're also praying that there would be no leaks in her intestines so the doctors can do a full closure of her stomach and God's grace, that will be her final surgery. We have time to donate blood for Eika, keep it coming! God bless those hearts who approached us, even total strangers approached us and they are willing to donate blood for our little warrior princess. Thank You Lord!!! Thank You for touching these people's lives to help our baby Eika.

To those who already sent and to those who told us that will give financial assistance, Thank you so much! For all the prayers for our baby, you just don't know how overwhelmed we are for your amazing prayers. Countless miracles are coming! There are strangers calling me, saying they read my post, and pray for our baby over the phone. Very touching if you could only see Eika, I'm sure your hearts will break for her, what more to us parents? But still, we are thankful! Thank You Lord for using our baby, touching peoples lives, to strengthen our faith, to believe that You are real. We will win this, in God's perfect time. Since Eika is not yet able to breastfeed, I am secretly donating my breastmilk to other babies in NICU, anonymous donors are coming for our baby Eika, in exchange of this blessing. Thank You Lord!!!
