[Baguio City, Philippines] Last January 28, 2015, baby Nathan was born with complications in his small intestine, a condition that can only be solved if he will be operated on within 24 hours. He had the operation that day and had most of his small intestines removed, which made his body vulnerable to life-threatening infection. A second look surgery was done last January 31 and a gangrenous distal ileum to ligament of Treitz was noted. The schduled third operation (Jejuno-ileostomy) on February 12 was done and Nathan is coping fairly well so far. Baby Nathan needs a small intestine transplant (hopefully by around the time he turns 2 months to avoid further complications due to total parenteral nutrition). The nearest hospital that can perform such procedure is in Singapore, which would cost about 2.5 million pesos, excluding the family's incidental expenses.
Full of hope and love for baby Nathan, we sincerely ask for your help and support. No amount is too little or big. All the help that comes from the heart is greatly appreciated! Your prayers and positive healing energy for him will as well be very helpful.
