We are asking for your kind prayers and help.
We have been on this unexpected journey with our Mommy Dodie for more than a year now.
In 2018, she started losing her hearing but except for having that treated, was her usual self. Healthy and strong and young for her age of 59 at the time. But before Christmas that year she suffered a stroke and test results came back to show she had a bump/tumor in her brain which was causing it to swell and retain water. This is called Acoustic Schwannoma.
She went through many tests, a shunt operation, had to also deal with treatment for tuberculosis, re-operate on her shunt, went to physical therapy and reschedule her major brain surgery til February this year.
But after New Year just when she was clear from tuberculosis she got pneumonia. She was taking medicine to treat it when we had to rush her to the hospital yesterday, January 12, 2020, because she suddenly lost conciousness and will not respond to anything. The doctors said she suffered a mild heart attack and while she is now awake, must still be confined at the ICU of FEU NRMF for monitoring.
She is a loving mother, sister, grandmother and friend to a lot of people. Always ready to talk and brimming with enthusiasm.
We appreciate your help. God Bless.
