Help Alejandra and Grandma with their Medical Care

Update posted by Kristen Poehner On Mar 02, 2019

A lot of thing happened since the last update.

Aleph had to suspend and cut treatment with her previous doctor as his treatment was getting too aggressive and wouldn't listen. Her hands were too bruised from IV therapies and he was starting to get involved with her psychiatric help which she already had a doctor for. Some medicament he administered her was giving side effects such as suicidal thoughts and others which the suicidal thoughts disappeared upon 2 days of suspending medications (except the ones given previously by Aleph's psychiatrists)

Psychiatrist was visited, she is under observation to see if the suicidal thoughts reappear.

She also found another gastroenterologist who has a different approach and will have her under control. She has been given an order to do the test and verify the Helicobacter pylori has been eradicated.

She was also sent to see her endocrinologist as some of the other side effects have to do with hormones and also it involves her usual checkup due to her hypoglycemia.

Alejandra is also currently trying to help her Grandmother who has been sick for a few years as well, she had been diagnosed previously with a esophageal candidiasis who had her with a terrible cough and even blood vomiting. She was treated, but it is very possible that she has more or some other bacteria who got covered up by the previous condition since her cough reappeared and gastrointestinal issues along with it.

Aleph was also given a hemoglobin boost the day of yesterday as something called dextromaltosa which costed $256.99 but supposed to help with the anemia the bacteria have caused. Thanks to you, she has been getting treated the best she can.

Alejandra's doctor informed her and her mom that her current blood count is lower than the standard. 12 to 16 gm/dL being the average for an adult woman, however Ale's count is on 9 gm/dL so he has suggested putting a medicament to increase and improve Ale's quality of life. The medicine cost is 259.99 and told it should be as soon as they are able to pay it.

Most of the campaign has been used to cover the appointments which are $150 each and every 3 days plus medicines.

Please continue to help her.

Try to stay positive, even if it is sometimes hard to do so! My thoughts are with you, as well as many others, I believe. On behalf of the people that can't donate, I want to give you some money as well as all the best wishes to you and your mother! May it help to lighten your burden a bit. I hope you get well soon! 💐
