DAY 28 - The Lord is our Refuge



Monday, first day of the week and we woke up early because we are so excited to see Faith a day after her procedure. The three hours of sleep did not hinder our excitement to see our daughter.

We started our day with a prayer for Faith's healing and fast recovery. When we arrived Faith is wide awake. She responded to her mother's voice by waving her hands and kicking her feet up high. She nods and smiled a lot making her mother very happy.

Her feeding was resumed and her umbilical catheter has been removed. She is now enjoying her new IV line and she is playing with it.

Her color is reddish pink with good oxygen saturation.

The kind nurses positioned her side to side every 2 hours. Dr. Masangkay visited her as well and she was happy with the progress. Her 3 antibiotics is still ongoing. The mech-vent setting has been decreased too.

We are praying that she will be extubated soon and she can breath independently without the help of the machine.

Day by day we can see how God moves in Faith's life and condition. We witness the power of God's healing and power. He also send people to help us and be a channel of blessings.

We would like to thank the people from Abu Dhabi who shared their blessing even if they didn't know us personally. Your love gifts will help Faith in her fight. Thank you for being a real life HERO for Faith. We may not be able to thank you personally but our deepest gratitude is overwhelming. God knows the things you have done in secret and He will greatly reward you for your kindness and generosity.

We went back for the afternoon visiting hours. We prayed for her and we encouraged her to keep strong and brave. We always tell her how much we love her and how much Jesus loves her. We even mention to her the names of her Heroes who prayed and supported her journey.

Today is also her 4th week since she was born. The Lord is our refuge. We prayed and cried so hard to God. Many times we are worried and afraid but the Lord always comfort us and secure us with His promises.

We went home with happy hearts. We are secured that Jesus love us and He love Faith so much.

Sometimes you may feel that God has abandoned you or doesn't love you. Things that happened in the past that looses your confidence in Him. Prayers may not be answered the way you wish it to happen. We want to share the word of God to you from Romans 8:38-39,

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jesus love you!

DAY 26 - Trust in the Lord


Early morning we received a message that we need to go to the hospital to sign a consent for

Faith's procedure. We rushed to the hospital for the consent and of course we are excited to see our little angel.

On our way to the hospital we were praying and hoping that the procedure will be successful. My wife said that our daughter is so young to experience pain and difficulties in her early stage of life. I answered and said that God is with Faith every single moment of her life and we must trust his ways.

When we reached the hospital the procedure was explained to us and then I signed the consent. We wish to see Faith but it is not visiting hours yet so we needed to come back at 4 in the afternoon.

We had a quick lunch at the hospital canteen. Even without the fancy ambiance and instagramable food presentation we did enjoyed our date. Even in the midst of trial and stress I still need to make my wife happy. Yes we are focusing on Faith's condition but I still need to take care of my wife. I made her laugh, encourage her, comfort her and love her.

While waiting for the visiting hours I read a christian book about healing. God is able and willing to heal us. He is jehovah rapha or the Lord who heals. Jesus won it all and He is mightier than any disease. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. We can command the disease to be gone in Jesus name. I learned a lot and I am excited to apply those learning to my daughter.

When we came back to NICU I was able to talk to her doctor and she said that they need to reschedule PICC line insertion tomorrow morning. When I went to see Faith she was asleep i check her monitors and all is well. Her color is better now and her breathing is relax with the aid of mech-ventilator. She is calm. When she heard my voice she opened her eyes for me and started stretching her arms and leg. Im excited to tell Roan who was worried so I asked her to see Faith immediately.

Unlike before my wife was so afraid to touch Faith but this time she asked the nurse if she can touch our daughter. My wife prayed for Faith. She held her feet, legs and her hands. Roan comforted her and encouraged her to be strong for her procedure.

From a distance I can see how happy my wife is with Faith. I can see how much she loves Faith. A mother's love is deeper than anything else.

If I can only freeze that moment and save it in my memory it would be my favorite.

Since Faith was conceived our roller coaster ride has begun. Some days are happy, some days are just ok and some days are heart breaking. In every situation we praise and worship the Lord. In every situation we learn to trust God and it eventually became a lifestyle to trust Jesus in everything. Even if it hurts and even if it seems impossible we have to trust God.

Today Faith is still intubated and her breathing is assisted by a machine. Her pneumonia is still there but its not progressing. Her weight remains the same, she is not gaining nor loosing. Her nourishment is supplied by TPN and her milk is on hold for a while. She is thin, small and fragile. We praised God for her life and we entrust our daughter to Him in every step of the way. While we are waiting we will worship God.

Tomorrow her procedure will be done in the morning. We will be there to pray for her and support her. May we ask if you could also pray for Faith. Like Faith you are also a warrior, our Prayer Warrior. Thank you for reading her story everyday, the purpose of all of this is to glorify God through the life of Faith.

Please feel free to share your story about your journey in trusting God.

God bless us all.

Day 25 - Stand firm in the Faith


We were excited to see Faith today after her blood transfusion last night. My wife and I were hoping that she will look good today and not pale anymore.

We have a little amount of milk for Faith and our joyful excited hearts to be with her.

We arrived a little bit early before the visiting hours so we process her papers and updated the hospital bill.

4pm and it is visiting hours. I washed my hands and put on the hospital gown. I walk towards her isollete feeling excited.

Faith was wearing a bonnet and she is not that pale anymore. Faith daddy is here and she opened her eyes. Im sure our daughter is happy to know that we are there for her. I prayed and told her how our day went and how excited we were to see her.

The nurse told me that her feeding has been hold because she had a coffee ground vomitus and they were observing her.

Suddenly Faith became restless. Her oxygen saturation dips to 62%. Right in front of my eyes i witnessed her struggle to breathe. I was scared but her attentive nurse approached her calmly and I have to trust them because they know better. This is the first time I witnessed it personally. The alarms are all ringing and on red light. I stepped back to give space for them to check Faith. They suction her secretions and positioned her comfortably. Her oxygen saturation started to go back to normal. I was scared and terrified witnessing all of that.

During that moment I was holding on to Gods promises that He is with us all the way on this journey and He will heal our little baby.

After that scenario Faith is still restless so I asked permission if I can hold her hand which they allowed. I hold Faith's little hand and she barely wrapped her hand around my index finger. I sang a lullaby for her which somehow calmed her, she was looking at me as I do it.

After 25 minutes I went to Roan. She asked me what took me so long. I told her that Faith looks cute with her bonnet and she is ok. They just need to suction her secretion and they are doing chest x-ray.

Roan went to Faith and she went back after 5 minutes. I saw her teary eyes and she said I cannot bare to see our daughter like that. I comforted her while she was crying. I am emotional too but I have to be strong for my daughter and for my wife.

I went back to Faith and she is more calm. Again I lay my hands and prayed for her. I told her "anak keep strong and kaya mo yan (you can do it). Mahal ka namin ni mommy and Jesus loves you. Keep fighting anak.

The doctor updated me with Faith's condition. She said that the pneumonia is not progressing and she is active.

They scheduled the PICC line insertion procedure tomorrow and they already ordered the material from the supplier. It is expensive and we have to settle it directly to the supplier.

The doctor said that we have to keep praying for the success of the procedure since Faith will be the smallest preemie that they will operate for that procedure.

Before we went home Roan wanted to see our daughter. She said that she was more calm and she was on prone position. They turned Faith side to side every two hours to avoid bedsores.

We stayed at the hospital parking lot for a while. Then my wife burst into tears. She was crying and worried about Faith. I told her that it is ok to cry. She is so hurt that our baby is undergoing difficulties, struggle, pain and infection.

I have to remind her that God is with us and He will take care of Faith. That God is doing miracle and He is our healer.

We attended a bible study fellowship with two Godly couples. We are reminded that we are a steward of Faith and that she is a child of God. He will protect, sustain, provide and heal Faith and above all He loves Faith.

We are so blessed to have an opportunity to worship and study the word of God in the midst of trial. That God sent godly people to encourage, walk and pray with us and for us.

Thank you Doc llorens, mae, kuya don and ate tin for a couples fellowship.

Tomorrow is another battle for Faith and for us. We need to guard our hearts from the lies of the enemy. We need to stand firm in Faith that we should trust God's power. We need to have courage and needed to be strong for the coming days. You might be in a different situation but remember that Jesus loves you. Your existence is a miracle already.

Thank you for praying for Faith. Thank you for sending your support. We are so priviledge to be Faith's steward. Lets continue to pray for our daughter.

Day 24 - A mother's touch


Today is a wonderful day for us. It is Roan's birthday. I asked her what she wants for her birthday and she answered "makasama ko lang ang anak natin masaya na ako".

We went to the hospital earlier than usual. Roan is excited because she was able to express milk for baby Faith.

Roan handed over the milk to NICU. At the entrance we were advised that Faith had an episode of desaturation last night (low blood oxygen concentration). I walked straight to her isollete and she was asleep.

Faith is pale in color and she puts too much effort breathing. My wife said that Faith is like gasping for air. Her oxygen saturation sometimes dip to 82-85 but recovers in a few.

She is moving her arms and legs and opened her eyes when I talked to her.

We were so worried of Faith's condition and witnessing our child having difficulty breaks our heart. Heart break is an understatement.

Roan said "sana ako na lang nakakaramdam ng sakit at hirap, wag na lang yung anak ko"

Its not visiting hours yet so we went out and went to the milk bank. Roan tried to pump and express milk. There we met an angel named sophia. She is 4 years old now and also borned prematurely at 26 weeks. The sweet angel embraced me when she saw me, like shes telling me not to worry. She embrace roan when we are about to go. Her mother who has known Faith through this page and is following her journey encourages us to be patient and pray harder because in the end its worth it. At this point I know that God sent them to meet us. It is not an accident that we meet each other.

We went back to NICU again. At this time Faith is wearing a bonnet and a blanket to keep her warm. She doesn't look like gasping for air anymore then I noticed that her mech-vent setting was adjusted to AC mode from SIMV. It means that the machine is initiating the breath cycle and volume. She is more relax but still looks pale.

I asked a favor from the nurse if my wife can touch our daughter. Roan never had a chance to touch and hold our daughter. The kind nurse allowed us and assisted her to touch baby Faith. Roan was very careful and excited at the same time. For the first time she was able to touch and hold our daughter. She touched her feet, her legs, and her hand. That was a magical moment, mother and daughter bounded by love.

It may not be a big deal for others but for Roan it is the best birthday gift that she received in her life. Unlike any other mother they were able to hold their baby immediately after delivery. My wife was able to do that on the 24th day with rubber gloves on her hands. Unlike other mother she have not heard our baby's cry because she is intubated. Unlike other mothers my wife cannot feed our baby directly from her breast. Unlike other mothers roan cannot comfort our daughter when she feels alone and sick. We are divided by the distance, the walls of the incubator, the walls of the hospital.

Today is my wife's birthday, the most special day of the year and we spend the time with our special and most love angel. 35 years ago she was also confined in the same NICU because of sepsis after birth and she survived. No wonder Faith is strong because her mom is a survivor.

Before leaving I was asked to go back to nicu to sign a consent. Faith needs blood transfusion tonight. We are still in the hospital at this very moment. Praying for Faith's healing and recovery.

Again my we ask for your prayers and support. God bless us all.

Day 23 - Out of comfort zone


Today is Roan's OB check up. I was able to visit my previous place where I work and I was able to see some closest friends in the hospital.

When Iwas working as a nurse there are times that I will be pulled out and transferred to other unit. It is hard and uncomfortable when you are outside your comfort zone.

On our way to the hospital I decided to turn right to an unfamiliar route. Out of our usual way.

When we arrived at the hospital we went straight to NICU. The place will welcome you with pink wall paint, beautiful smiles from the nurses and beeping sounds of the machines. The ambiance is peaceful and the staffs are working in harmony.

Faith was asleep when I got there. I didnt wake her up and started praying for her as soon as I got there. I took a glimpse on cardiac monitor and mech-vent setting. We are so blessed that Faith got the best NICU doctors and nurses. I noticed immediately that Faith is on a side lying position, and not on her usual position.

Faith is now breathing on her own effort and with very minimal help from the machine. Unlike before where the machine is totally breathing for her. Again out of her comfort zone. Her feeding has been increased and she was able to tolerate it.

Faith is doing well today. Good job anak.

Faith has been out of her comfort zone for 23 days now. Out of protection and warmth of her mother's womb. Her body is too young to be exposed to the outside world. Her lungs to young to breathe on its own. Her immune system to weak to fight any infection. Everything is out of her comfort zone.

Roan stopped working from the day we knew that we were pregnant. She was on bedrest for six months. From being an independent woman to a dependent patient. Out of her usual routine.

When I was transferred from my unit to another unit during my work at the hospital I learned a lot of things that I will never experience from my comfort zone. When I turned right to an unfamiliar route I experienced delays but I learned an alternative route. When Faith is not on her usual lying position it helped her avoid bed sore. When she is breathing on her own it will help her to breathe spontaneously and survive. When roan chose to do bed rest it prolonged her pregnancy a little bit more.

Sometimes we experience set backs, challenges and situations that will push us to get out of our comfort zone. Yes it is hard and sometimes impossible to resolve. Yet we learn when we are out of it.

My wife, my daughter and I are totally out of our comfort zone. Its difficult, its frustrating, its painful, and totally out of control. Yet we are rejoicing and praising God because every single day we never felt that we are alone. We know that God is walking with us and He is sending help. He used people to be a channel of his blessings, a channel of his encouragement and a channel of his Love.

We learned to trust him more. We may be out of our comfort zone but on this situation God has showed us how much He loves Faith and my family. Do not be afraid to go out of your comfort zone because God will sustain and guide you. Just trust him and obey his commands.

We are so excited on how God is going to fix our impossible situation and we know its worth it.

Day 22 - Peace of God



It is raining very hard today but it will never stop us from visiting Faith because she is waiting for us and we miss her so much.

She is wide awake after her diaper change and weighing. She opened her eyes to see me. She stared at me longer than before.

Good news her vent setting has been changed from AC to SIMV which mean Faith is breathing on her own effort with minimal help providing mandatory breath from mech-vent. She is doing well today.

She is responding to her mother's voice and she showed off by stretching her hands and feet. She also have a dose of milk from Roan.

Faith is fighting everyday. There are days when she is down and there are days that she is active but everyday is a miracle and we know that she is winning.

I am a nurse by profession but when I visit Faith I am a father. A father that is concern about her condition, a father that is so in love with her daughter. A father that appreciates every kick, every breath, every movement and every little progress that my daughter had.

To be honest as a parent we became very anxious most of the time. I know the prognosis, the statistics and the research studies about preemies. Fact are base on studies but we are holding on the truth. The truth that God can heal any sickness, that God has a promise for Faith's future and that God is with us during this trial. God give us peace in our heart.

Every single day we pray, we worship, we petition and we thank God for the life of Faith and how He bless us with people who prayed and supported us all this time.

We would like to thank everyone who shared their blessings to Faith. People from abu dhabi, australia, canada, america and africa. Thank you so much! People from pampanga, palawan, taguig, bataan, manila, quezon city, makati, pasay, pasig, marikina, sultan kudarat, and other provinces. To anonymous givers who transferred money on our bank account. Thank you.

Our family is thankful for your life. Every peso you sent is a love we receive for Faith. We may not be able to thank you personally but we are praying for you and God sees the kindness and generosity of your heart. Thank you. Please continue to pray for Faith.

God bless us all.

Day 21 - New Battle



Ventilator acquired pneumonia. The doctor had to break the news when we visited Faith today. It breaks my heart, knowing how difficult her situation right now and yet another battle for her to fight.

In addition her umbilical catheter is needed to be transferred. An option of cut down or picc line for new access. Her veins are not yet that big but the doctor said that they will find a way to transfer the access line. A minor operation maybe needed.

Faith opened her eyes to see me. Wiggled her feet and wave her hands acknowledging my presence. I said "Faith anak you are so strong and you need to be stronger everyday. Kapit lang anak at mahal ka namin, mahal ka ni Jesus"

Her good nurse applied moisturizer on her skin so it will not dry up. She was on close supervision and care Thank you nurse M. God bless you. The doctor took time to check her and adjust her mech-vent setting. God bless you doc.

My wife and I went home very quiet. We didn't talk about anything and our minds are worried about Faith.

We are just listening to worship song. We sang together and praising God. Then the song Over

Come the world plays. One part of the song says

"No sickness can claim us

You're the one who has overcome the world

All disease defeated

You're the one who has overcome the world

All my chains are broken

You're the one who has overcome the world

No darkness will triumph"

King Jesus, You're victorious

All the heaven roars, You're glorious

You are Lord of all, we shout Your name

Jesus, You are God, You forever reign

We proclaimed and declared that God already has overcome the sickness of our child. That all diseases are defeated because Jesus is victorious above our situation.

God already comforted us. We will worship the Lord while we are climbing our mountains. The Lord commanded that we should not be afraid and discouraged because He will be with us along the way.

We are asking for your prayers for our daughter's healing and fast recovery Thank you so much for your continuous love and support.

God bless us all!

Day 20 - Salvation belongs to our God


"So holy, so worthy, So great is Your name

That the earth will adore You And shout out Your fame

Blessing and honor, glory and power

Salvation belongs to our God."

The lyrics we sang during worship. We are praying for Faiths healing and recovery and God is doing His miracle over her. More than healing and financial provision God is Lord over our situation, over the life of our daughter. He is our savior and Faith's savior. Salvation is the greatest gift that God has given to Faith and to us.

After church service we were filled with hope, filled with love and filled with the holy spirit. We are so excited to share the same to our daughter Faith. We arrived at the hospital before 7pm.

Faith is asleep and relax. I didn't wake her up since she needs to rest I prayed for her. Looking in her face magnifies how powerful and mighty God is.

Faith looks good today. Her vent setting has been decreased and she was able to tolerate it. She pooped twice today. We were not able to bring milk for her today but her milk stock is still sufficient.

Faith is surrounded by Gods blessings. Compassionate and skilled nurses; doctors that are full of wisdom and knowledge. A community that are praying for her and sharing their blessings with her.

Today we received financial provision from our local church, relatives and from an anonymous giver. Thank you! God uses people to be a channel of His blessings and we thank God for the life of generous and kind people. Thank you for sharing our post because more people are praying for our daughter.

We asked God to move our mountains, financial mountain, sickness mountain and trial mountain. This time God did not move our mountains, He wanted us to climb our mountains but the good thing about it is He is with us all this time. We communicate more often and we learn to trust Him more. Climbing our mountains is not easy but its worth it.

You may experience mountains in your life right now and it is still there. Don't be afraid to climb it because God will provide all your needs and He will be with you. Just trust and have faith in him.

Day 19 - The Lord will fight for you.

Watch: Day 19 video


We woke up early today so I can still register at comelec as local government requires that you are a registered voter for them to help you financially. To cut the long story short "it was a success"! From 9am I finished the registration at 6:30 in the evening. Roan was able to pump milk while at home.

We arrived at the hospital around eight in the evening. Again Faith is asleep. I woke her up with my excited voice "anak nandito na si Daddy" and she immediately opened her eyes. I am so happy to see those little beautiful eyes of my daughter. She stretched her arms and wiggled her feet. I am so happy to see Faith her color is pinkish red, her lips are not dry, her movement is controlled. Her milk feeding was increased though her mech-vent setting was increased again because she cannot tolerate well the previous setting. Her urine output is normal again. Praise God there is no more episode of seizure and she finished her vancomycin antibiotic, it was replaced by two antibiotic. She is very well today.

Faith opened her eyes for her mom. My wife cannot help doing baby talks to Faith.

"Mommy cannot wait to kiss and hug you". "Mommy loves you so much". "Mommy would love to take care of you". "You are so beautiful anak"

"Mommy is here" and "i love you anak!"

These are the phrases that my wife tells Faith every single day.

We went home with a happy heart and with a confidence that our baby is receiving a tender loving care from her very kind and compassionate nurse. She let us pray together for Faith.

The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still. The Lord fight for Faith in her daily battle to survive. He fights for us everyday when we are weak and helpless. The Lord is fighting with us in this situation. Being still doesn't mean we should do nothing, it means trusting God and believing in Him. In midst of flood do not panic, remember that your Lord and saviour walks on water and Jesus loves you.

Everyday we thank God for his gift of life to Faith. Every single day is a miracle. When Faith is about to be delivered we prayed and beg for God to save our child, we took ownership of Faith. Then the realization hits me, yes Faith is our child but she is also a child of God. The Lord will protect her, provide for her, heal her and love her. Jesus died for all of us and He also died for Faith because He loves her.

Jesus also died for you because He loves you.

I hope the story of our daughter will ignite something in your heart. Jesus is working in her life and He is also doing something in yours. You may have a different challenges and battle in your life right now but Jesus wanted you to know that He loves you and He will fight for you.

Thank you for your continuous prayer and support for Faith. Together let us fight for Faith.

God bless you!

Day 18 - A glimpse of an Angel


Everyday we travel from Makati to Quezon city to have a glimpse on our baby Faith. No amount of traffic or bad weather can stop us. Seeing Faith is the highlight of our day. Just like any parent our child brings delight to our hearts.

My wife Roan is working hard to express milk while we are at home. Every 3 hours she will wake up to pump milk. Every drop matters, though her body is not yet ready to produce a lot of milk because she was just 6 months pregnant when she delivered Faith. I can see the frustration yet she is so eager to produce because she wanted the best for our baby. I will wake up at around 3am seeing her pump her milk and she was also praying to God for the healing of our baby. Her body is still weak and her emotions are battling the situation yet she push herself to function and be there for our baby.

When we reached the hospital the excitement in our hearts got more intense. We wash our hands, put on the gown and walk straight to where Faith is. Even with just 1ml of milk I proudly hand it over to her nurse. That milk is made from pure love of her mother.

Most of the time when I see Faith she is asleep. When I say "anak nandito na si Daddy" she would open her eyes just to have a glimpse of me. I guess the highlight of her day is when she hears our voice and knowing that we are there for her.

I wonder if she misses us. I wonder if she longs for our touch and for our hug the way we long for hers. I wonder if our voice is music to her ears. I wonder if how is she when we are not around. I'm sorry anak wala kami sa tabi mo pag nahihirapan ka, pag nasasaktan ka o kapag may kailangan ka. I'm sorry anak. Those are the words I utter in my mind when we visit her.

We are so blessed that the nurses and doctors who look after her shows compassion and exhibits tender loving care that we cannot provide at this point. They also became our co-parent for Faith. Everyday we prayed for the nurses and doctors who looks after Faith, their names are listed on our prayer points.

Today Faith had a blood transfusion. Her phenobarbital has been discontinued. The mech-vent setting has been lowered. They are trying to wean her off from mech-vent.

Her urine output is elevated but they are replenishing it with IV hydration.

When Roan saw her, Faith opened her eyes again to see her mom. Everyday Roan will tell Faith how much we love her, how beautiful she is and how excited we are to bring her home.

Everyday we lay hands and pray for Faith. Everyday we say how much we love her and how proud we are. Everyday Faith is fighting; everyday we are fighting for her and with her.

Everyday we tell her that auntie, tito, tita, uncle, kuya, ate, and someone we dont know shared their blessings and prayers for her recovery.

We also kept a list of people who prayed and supported us in this trying time.

We went home with smiles in our hearts knowing that Faith is in the good hands.

In Isaiah 41:10 the Lord says

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

We know that God is in control. He is with us, he is with Faith and He is also with you. God enables us to endure this hardship and He also sent help in many ways. God sees our condition, your condition and we need to let Him help us, let Him take over.

God Bless us all!
