A couple of weeks ago our Papa Mario started feeling concurring joint pains and nausea among other things, and because of this he could not sleep comfortably for days on end. Last Monday, his lab results came back and we found out that he had low blood levels (Initial hemoglobin 50, normal range 120-150), and high sugar levels (Initial sugar 547, normal range 80-120). He was immediately taken to the emergency room and given insulin to regulate his sugar. He has been admitted in the hospital since then and as a result our hospital bills have also piled up, and continue to pile up as more tests are done on him.
Half of Papa's body was paralyzed about 20 years ago when he suffered his first stroke. He has been hospitalized multiple times after that which is why this time around, more tests have to be done to ensure his recovery. The last few tests done on him showed that his lungs and heart are now somehow affected as well.
It's Papa's 69th birthday on November 26. He looks forward to this day like no other day in the year, and we are hoping that we could celebrate it with him back at home.
We are humbly knocking on the doors of your hearts to help us in any way that you can. We would really appreciate any form of help that you can extend to our family. All proceeds will go directly to Papa's hospital bills and everything else that will be required for his maintenance thereafter. Thank you and God bless you.
