I had a talk with Papa's pulmonologist , the Xrays and Arterial Blood Gas results are improving but they are still not ready to wean him off from the ventilator due to his sensorium. It's his 10th day on ventilator, most probably they will do tracheostomy if his sensorium wont improve further.

I would also like to extend my sincerest gratitude to all my friends and people from this fundraising page who have been thoughtful enough to help me during the toughest days of my life. Tho We only managed to achieve 25% of our target Funds as of today , it still is a huge help to me and Papa. From the bottom of my Heart, Thank you so much. I am forever grateful!! ♥️

Please continue to pray for my Father's Healing. 🙏🏻

Papa has spontaneous eye opening today. yey!! He is GCS 10 now , highest score he has since he deteriorated to GCS 4 9 days ago. He is still intubated ( on ventilators) and with long list of medications. He had episodes of Atrial Fibrillation( abnormalities in his heart rhythm ) for 2 days but its being managed by his cardiologist. I am still in Singapore and just awaiting for updates from his Doctors. We do videocall everyday and seeing him open his eyes gave me hope. He is still in critical condition but i know he will get through this and i will be able to hug my father once again. Please continue to pray for Papa's recovery! Like i said ... Miracles happen.Love and Prayers can move mountains. 🙏🏻

I've worked at The Medical City Iloilo for almost 6 years . 5 years in ICU and 8 months CCU/ Acute Stroke Unit. During those years , it was normal for us to help one another whenever we know that a family member of a TMC staff is admitted. I left TMC 2 years ago but the love, respect and care that is being shown to me and papa right now by my TMC family is something that brings me comfort each day despite how insanely difficult it has been for the past 10 days. Honestly, I am at the lowest point of my life right now but i don't disregard the fact that everyday I've been experiencing miracles. The support , prayers and love i get are miracles itself. You can't imagine what its like to be an only child , who is away , of a single parent who is in critical condition. Despite the paralyzing heartaches, numbness and panic attacks i had for the past days , there's still gratefullnes , faith , hope and love left in my heart. I Will hold on to that as long as i can.

Day

Papa is still In Critical Care Unit / Acute Stroke Unit . He is currently sedated and his scans yesterday has no changes. I video call and talk to him everyday and it breaks my heart not receiving any response from him.I know deep in my heart that he can still hear me . I am still in Singapore as there are no flights bound to Iloilo . If there will be flights using different routes that is near iloilo , i will still be undergoing a minimum of 28 days quarantine ( 14 days in Manila and another 14 days in Iloilo ) . I was able to talk to Philippine Embassy , they told me that if i'll be able to go home, i need to ready myself that i may not be able to come back to SG and lose my job. If i lose my job , no one can support my Papa as i am the only who provides for everything. This is by far the lowest point in my life yet im sharing it publicly because i cannot carry this challenge alone. I will be the responsible daughter he raised me to be even if this situation will forever break my heart. That's how much i love Papa.

Day 5

Last night , around 11:30 PM Papa had spontaneous eye opening , his Nurses immediately called me to see him via video call. I cried and said thank you to Papa for fighting. For the first time since his admission, i was able to sleep for 4hours straight. I guess with the help of that news + Anarex. But this morning , he's back to GCS 7 , he cannot sustain opening his eyes. I brokedown again. I'm still trying to find flights going to the Philippines. I've tried calling the Phil.Embassy Emergency Hotline but no one is answering and the message box is full. I've search for flights going to the Philippines but there's nothing. I don't know until when i can handle this yo-yo of emotions . But i cannot just totally give up on him coz he's not totally gone. He still have spontaneous breathing and i know he can hear me whenever we videocall each other. A lot of people are giving up . But they are not my father's daughter. I am his only daughter. How can i do that to him? I 'll hold on to my faith and I lift everything to God. I've worked long enough in ICU to know that miracles happen. Prayers and Love can move mountains.

Papa is not doing well. He deteriorated yesterday to GCS 4 . still intubated . currently he's gcs 7 but pupils are still unresponsive. they added rheumatologist on board for his vasculitis and pulmonologist cause he is now intubated on mechanical ventilator. These are additional Doctors on top of his IM, ID , Neurologist, Neuro Surgeon , Neuro Intensivist and Cardiologist. If there is the slimmest of hope that i can hug Papa once more then i'll do everything I can . I owe that to him because he 's a good Man and a great father . I'll continue fighting.

Earlier this morning, I managed to talk to Dr. Lee, his neuro surgeon. Somehow, she was able to give me hope that my Papa will be okay. He's clinically blind now but there's hope that his eye sight will be restored once the bleeding in his occipital lobe subsides. He doesn't need surgery since there are multiple bleedings in different sites. The goal now is for the bleeding not to spread any further. Hopefully, his MRI and MRA today will turn out okay.

I've always feared for this day to arrive knowing that I will solely bear the responsibility because I'm an only child. With God's blessings, I was able to save from the past 2 years that I've been working in Singapore. But I know it won't be enough for Papa's medical expenses at the moment. He has a Neurologist, Neuro Surgeon , Neuro Intensivist, Internal Med, Cardiologist and ID Doctors on board.

I still need your help praying for Papa since he is still in critical condition. I also need to stay focused and plan ahead since its only me supporting my Papa. Luckily, I have awesome best friends by my side who are also helping me mentally, emotionally and physically. I can't be there physically to take care of him but I will do everything to make sure he will get the best care and medical team possible. I can always earn money in the future, but I only have 1 Papa.
