I am the daughter of Mrs. Nenita Nival and I’d like to ask help from friends, relatives,etc. for her medication, operation and hospital bills. My mom has been diagnosed with Diabetes since I was a kid. From then on, she had lots of maintenance medicines and later on had to inject insulin. There were times that she can’t take her medicines on time due to lack of financial capability. She worked in a tailoring shop for almost 33 years earning just enough to support our needs.
Mid-April 2019, an accident happened inside our home when she accidentally slipped inside the comfort room. She down with her right arm on the floor. Two days after she started to have fever and her right arm started to swell bigger. I decided to bring her in the hospital (Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center) for a check up and found that the infection already spread. And because she has diabetes, all her vital signs must be checked. We stayed at the ER for 24 hours, my mom having a dextrose and sitting while asleep. She undergone a series of lab tests including X-ray and blood sugar test. Results were not good as her sugar were very high as well send BP but her sodium and potassium were very low. After 24 hours of stay in the ER, we then decided to transfer her to St. Jude Hospital for her to be given with proper medication. Her arm got more swollen and started to blister, blood clots already formed. Her surgeon started the operation that they needed to remove the affected area. Long story short, she almost lost her right arm. 15 days of being confined in the hospital, a lot of things happened. We almost lost hope that she’ll be doing fine soon. She wants to go home already don’t want to take medicine at all. We then just decided to transfer her to Chinese General Hospital for the hope that she’ll be better and we wanted to lengthen her life. Again, she had series of lab tests, operation and a lot of medicine. On her X-ray result they found water on her lungs and have to remove immediately. The doctors got more than 2 liters. Her arms operated again. My mom also start to flush blood which gained 7 diapers max a day, the reason why the doctors need to transfuse blood of about 3 bags.
MAma is in the hospital and needs a lot of medication and attention. On behalf of my family, i’d like to appeal to everyone to please help us raise for us to be able to lengthen her life.
