Our lovely son, Aidan was submitted to the Intensive Care Unit at National University of Hospital, Singapore, Wednesday 11 September 2019. He was suddenly unconscious without any symptoms, seizures and fits on Wednesday night when his body temperature rose 40.3 degrees Celsius. When at hospital, Aidan have been experiencing multiple seizures and fits. Aidan had underwent laboratory tests (blood, urine, and spinal fluid) MRI, and EEG scans. The tests and scans are normal without any critical issues, bacteria or viruses as well as no fractures and bleeding. While the doctors likely indicated infections, they have still yet to confirm what exactly is wrong and what the causes are.
Aidan is very active little boy, healthy and chubby. He was just 17 months. He is able to walk and started to talk Mama and Papa. No symptoms have been visible prior to the illness. The day before he was submitted to ICU, he played a ball with his Mom, he was smiling and laughing.
As of now, 18 September 2019, he has been at high dependency ward for one day and at the ICU for seven days, the doctors cannot tell exactly when Aidan will be discharged from ICU. Aidan's seizures were becoming less and less, however, doctors need to control it to ensure there is no repetitive seizures occur anymore. As of today, the fever remain up and down. While we always hope for the better, at the same time, we cannot avoid of our worry about this uncertainty and unpredictable situation. At the same time, the medical bills have been skyrocketing.
Since I am only the sole source of income and a foreigner working in Singapore, financial matter is a major concern with the treatment and hospitalization. Currently, I only rely on my company’s health insurance which is limited. My personal funds are depleted due to the extremely expensive bills at the hospital. We are hoping to help my Son raising sufficient funds to get his through the medical treatment.
Any kindness toward our total will make a difference for Aidan. I do really appreciate the value of the support from all of you. Any amount we receive that exceed to Aidan’s expense will be donated to people that need medical support. For donors who prefer to donate offline, you may give your kindness to the beneath detail.
