I am seeking your prayers and financial help for my mother Luisa Dela Torre. My mother was admitted in the hospital due to left side body weakness and slurred speech last October 28, 2022. My mother is hypertensive and she has medication that she has been taking to control her blood pressure. Last October 27 dinner time, my mother was cooking for our dinner when she suddenly felt dizzy and weakness on her body. Good thing that we were near her when this happened as we immediately held her when she was about to fell. She cried and tried her best to speak but she can't hardly say any words. We understood what she wanted to say is to take her medication. We gave her medication as immediate solution to what we can think that could help her. It did though. My mother was able to speak but she still having headache and body weakness. We thought that what happened was because she did not take her medication that day and she had not getting enough sleep. So, we observed and waited until morning to bring her for a Doctor's consultation.

Around 9am yesterday (10/28/2022), we were on our way to the Doctor's clinic for consultation. But she suddenly felt weakness on her entire body so I decided to take her to the Emergency Room and while we were at the triage area her speech started to slur again. Her blood pressure was at 179/110 and oxygen stat at 93%, she was rushed to the ER bed.

My mom was diagnosed with mild stroke and 2 blood clots on her brain. Thank God the clots were small that it did not require a surgery! Her RT PCR or Covid test result was released this morning (10/28/2022) and it came out Positive so we are transferred to an isolation room. My mom has no Covid symptoms and I'm also tested negative. Praise God!

I did not think yesterday of bringing her to a public hospital. Plus, she had an attack while we were at this hospital for consultation. I don't have time to drive her to a public hospital. Because I was so afraid and I want my mom to be taken care in the best Hospital and Doctor. The least I thought yesterday is to choose which hospital. My priority yesterday was my mom to get the best attention. She is very very important to me. I would do anything for her.

As an only child and breadwinner, this experience is very difficult. Seeing my mom in her condition plus the hospital bills piling up. It is very overwhelming. That kind of feeling where I have to look strong in front of my mom but I am very overwhelmed inside. My mom is not covered with my health insurance. So, all hospital expenses are from my own wallet. For us to be admitted yesterday, I already paid Php 41,000 or $707. I have a very little savings that is not even half of what I paid for the admission. And because she is tested Covid positive she will stay longer in the hospital than what we first thought. I'm very worried and struggling for funds of how much this will cost us.

This morning, my mom asked where to get funds for her hospitalization. She looked at me with tears in her eyes saying "Let's go home". I said, "No, don't worry about the funds. God is in control and our great provider."

I would like to seek your generous hearts to raise funds to help us pay the hospital bills.
