Updates on Covid19 Assistance for Parents

Update posted by Myka Go On Apr 24, 2021

My parents started having symptoms of cough and body pain since April 5, 2021.

We did not think much about it until my brother got tested and turned out to be positive last April 9, 2021.

We never expected both of my parents to become critical Covid19 patients.

We bought oxygen tanks to supplement their oxygen needs at home but they deteriorated and had difficult breathing.

My 2 other siblings and I decided to take my father to the Emergency Room on the 16th of April where he waited for an ICU room for almost 2 days.

We also decided to bring our mother on the 17th of April in the evening only because when we tried calling that morning of the 17th, the ER in the hospital did not have any beds available. It was only in the evening when we tried calling again and a bed became available in the ER. My mom waited for an ICU room for 5 days.

At present, they are still in the ICU. My dad is intubated and sedated and my mom is on high flow oxygen support.

I am asking for any kind of help that you can give us.

Thank you.


Update:

Today, May 2, 2021 at around 9 in the morning, my mom had to be intubated because of breathing difficulty.
