We are still waiting for the vacancy at PCMC Charity ward.

27 Sept

Baby Gab's color now better after the blood transfusion.
Baby Gab's oxygen went down to 66. Manual pumping was administered. X-ray showed he still has pneumonia because of the long period of intubation on a mechanical ventilator.

28 Sept

Oxygen now stable at 100 but needs to be nebulized every 6 hours.

Meds are:
Hydrocortizone
Fluconazole paper tab 3.5mg mix with milk every Monday and Thursday (for bacteria)
Cefipime & Gentamycin antibiotics (for 2 weeks treatment of bacterial infection)
Mupirocin ointment (3 times a day for the punctures to prevent bacteria blood culture)

Currently baby gab is still at the NICU of the current hospital. We have already queued him for admission to the Philippine Children's Medical Center charity ward. Problem is the ward is still full and since baby gab is still being treated because of an infection, he had to be isolated for a while. As of today we have no updates yet regarding the status of his PDA (heart condition).

He has also undergone another blood transfusion because of the sudden drop of his hemoglobin level.

The hospital bill has already reached almost 800K pesos. And there are additional meds prescribed by the doctor to treat baby gab's infection.
