Help Us Fight with Our Little Fighter

Update posted by Katrina Joy Lagasca On Oct 08, 2018

Aside from pneumonia, Stacy was also diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. Her pneumonia had been controlled, but due to bacterial meningitis, she was prescribed a medication that lasted for 21 days which prolonged her hospital stay. On September 25, she was almost ready for discharge as per advised by her attending physician. Unfortunately, we were not capable to immediately pay her expensive hospital bill. We had to find other resources and prepare her additional medical supplies at home like oxygen tank and nebulizer among others. Tube feeding and suctioning will have to continue as her risk for pneumonia is very high.

Morning of October 1, we noticed her severe weight loss. She looked a lot tinier and her skin sagged. We were planning to visit her attending physician the next day to inquire about the possibility of changing her milk and multivitamins. She seemed quiet that night, peacefully sleeping.

Until her diaper has to be changed... her aunt noticed that she is not breathing with no response at all. The doctors and nurses tried to revive her. Sadly, at 10:20pm of the same night, she was pronounced dead due to “cardiopulmonary arrest probably secondary to sudden infant death syndrome”. She died peacefully in her sleep, beautiful like an angel. It’s now her mommy’s turn to take good care of her. Finally, they are together in the loving arms of our Lord.

It was a good fight, Stacy. You were such a brave and great little fighter. Your fight, our fight, may have ended, but our love for you will remain forever.

Everyone, thank you for all your help financially, physically and spiritually. Thank you for fighting with us. May God bless you, your generous heart and your family abundantly that you will always be able to be a blessing to people in need.

P.S. Her photo was taken few days before she was readmitted in the hospital. I don’t like to post her last picture as I mentioned that she had a severe weight loss. I want us all to remember her quite chubby and pretty face.

Stacy was admitted again in the hospital last Wednesday night (August 29) due to pneumonia. She was intubated since then and was again placed in the incubator for close monitoring. Yesterday, she had blood transfusion due to her low hemoglobin level. She was also referred to pediatric neurologist to address her moebius sequence. This little fighter keeps on fighting. Let’s continue to pray for her.

We kindly need your financial assistance for her increasing hospital bills and to sustain her special needs. Any amount will be highly appreciated.

August 25 – Stacy had her first consultation with her pediatric neurologist. The pedia neuro explained how Stacy is failing to thrive or not gaining her expected weight due to her mental issues; in which, she is considering moebius syndrome. As defined by the Nutritional Organization for Rare Disorders, moebius syndrome is a rare neurological disorder, affecting 1 out of 1 million individuals, characterized by weakness or paralysis of multiple cranial nerves. In Stacy’s case, it is the 7th (facial) nerves. With this, Stacy will be unable to smile, frown, pucker her lips, raise her eyebrows or even close her eyelids. This is also the very reason why Stacy has not yet developed her sucking reflex. The doctor also explained how Stacy will exhibit delay in attaining certain milestones such as crawling or walking and how she has a high risk for having epilepsy in the future.

Aside from your continuous prayer, proper treatment and support system is what Stacy needs right now.

August 22 - Today, Stacy's family gathered for her mother's 40th day (after death), it is also Stacy's first follow-up check-up after being discharged from the hospital.

Although she looks a little pale, her doctor is happy with her overall progress. From 1.6 kg, she now weighs 1.93 kg. She is now also showing signs of sucking reflex, which we are hopeful that she will fully develop soon. The quantity of her milk and vitamins were also increased. Hopefully, her pale complexion will change by the time of her next follow-up check-up. Else, she may undergo blood transfusion again.

Thank you for all your help and prayers. Let’s continue praying for her complete healing.

August 15, 2018 - Stacy was discharged from the hospital. Her family is taking special care of her as she needs 24/7 monitoring. She is taking her milk through a feeding tube every 3 hours and is being suctioned as frequent as needed due to her secretions. Our little angel is home! Looking cute on her crib.


Her follow-up check-up with her attending physician is scheduled on August 23. From there, we will have the update as to what are the additional tests she needs to go through and other things that she may need.
