Today is the 5th day of my brother's hospital confinement.
He got tested for Covid-19 last September 18, as a requirement of their company before he could return back for work as he was already experiencing cough and fever for almost a week.
Few days later, he suffered from shortness of breath and his lips and fingernails shows purple and blue lessions. With this he decided that it's time for him to get hospitalized.
On September 22, it was never easy for us to find a hospital where we could admit him, as all hospital we inquired with are in their full capacity. Luckily, we got him admitted at Cardinal Santos Medical Center.
On that same day, the result of his swab test finally came out, and he tested positive. This news was a shock for him and to our whole family.
He had a very rough journey during his hospital confinement as he suffered from severe pneumonia. Not to mention that he was already on maintenance medication due to hypertension.
My brother is only 34 years old, and we know that he has a good chance to live and recover. Dexter remains optimistic and is trying his best to live everyday for himself and for our family. I know that he could get better, but Dexter needs our help. I hope that you could also be part of his healing and fast recovery.
We deeply appreciate your prayers and generosity for my brother and our family during this tough times. We hope that you and your family are keeping well and safe during this pandemic.
