Help for Baby Alejandro Tomas Nava’s Medical Bills & Treatment

Update posted by Christine Rojas On Jul 17, 2019

Hi everyone. Sending a few updates on our Baby Alejandro for the past 2 weeks, from Mommy Amanda.

Thank you for all the support and prayers you’ve given. Let us continue to pray for Alejandro Tomas’ total recovery. God bless!

JULY 5 UPDATE:

Baby’s anemia is ok now but his Na (Sodium), Ca (Calcium) have gone down possibly due to the furosemide (anti congestion medication for the heart and lungs) given and is being corrected. They have to replace the lost electrolytes. His chest X-ray is not good as his pneumonia has progressed. He has plenty secretions in his lungs. His antibiotic will be changed from Cefipime to Meropenem. His other antibiotics are Vancomycin and Amikacin. Doctor is keeping eye on possible fungal infection. Repeat labs will be done again. His oxygen is still at 80% and they will do a repeat ABG tomorrow. The hospital’s ventilator machine has finally arrived and they will hook him up to that. No more manual bagging.

JULY 6 UPDATE:

Baby is comfortable and breathing ok. There is also no more blood in his OGT (Orogastric tube.) Doctor has ordered a re exposure to phototherapy. His neonatologist opted to start a prophylactic fluconazole 2x weekly to prevent fungal infection


JULY 8 UPDATE:

Baby will be extubated tonight. Doctors will see if he can manage with the bubble CPAP. Repeat chest X-ray to see if there’s any improvement to his pneumonia.

Alejandro's visitors today.


JULY 10 UPDATE:

Baby’s oxygen has been decreased to 50% and tolerating it so far. However, his jaundice is being stubborn so doc has requested a peripheral blood smear to check for hemolysis. Hemolysis is when red blood cells rupture possibly due to infection or prematurity. Breastmilk feeding has been resumed today.


JULY 12 UPDATE:

He wasn’t able to tolerate the 50% oxygen so his doctors increased it back to 60%. Repeat chest X-ray showed no interval change. They added Spironolactone and Lanoxin for his heart and Budesonide for his lungs. He is able to tolerate 6cc of milk every 3 hrs. With regression of jaundice.

Tita Pia and Manang Bella came to visit.


JULY 15 UPDATE:

Better cardiac and pulmonary status. Peripheral Blood Smear shows no sign of hemolysis. He is tolerating his feeding so we will increase to 9cc and then 10cc. However, his jaundice is still persistently high so Dr. Gaspa will give him IVIG (immunoglobulin therapy). He has completed the course of one of his antibiotics.

Update as of July 4, 9PM

From Baby Alejandro Tomas' doctor: "Baby's breathing has improved. Blood transfusion done. Last phototherapy will be tonight. The result from his Fungal Infection test was negative. We will be repeating blood tests for CBC, Na, K, Ca and Protime. We will lower his oxygen again from 80% to 70% tomorrow and see if he can cope."

Our baby Alejandro Tomas' health is slowly improving. We'd like to thank everyone for all the prayers and monetary help extended, so far.

Update as of July 3, 2PM

From Baby Alejandro Tomas' doctor: "He is breathing easier and we are tapering his O2 but he has a small amount of blood in his gastric tube.. RPT labs are still showing mild anemia, still decreasing calcium and protime.. the rest are ok. Packed RPC is on standby for the anemia and we have also requested urinalysis with kOH to rule out fungal infection."


Mommy Amanda also just came from the NICU, and managed to take these photos:

We don't have any definite timeline yet as to the period of Baby Alejandro Tomas' hospital confinement, to continue with the tests and treatment. Thank you again for your continued prayers and support.
