This Fund Me page is closed. Thank you to all of you who contributed, it means more to us than words can say, you are all awesome. Once I have had the Angioplasty with Stenting done and receive the final receipt for payment I will post it in the group and also on my FB page. We still have a little way to go but the balance needed will be available in the next couple of weeks.

Anyone still wishing to help can do so through my Aussie bank account or through one of the various cash transfer services like World Remit, WU, Mlhullier, Palawan etc. Please pm me for details.

Thank you all again,

Well just came from the hospital ... what a bun fight ... they kept sending us from department to department although we also had a social worker with us ... but the crux of the matter is that there is some assistance available to foreigners ... the catch is no one was prepared to give our case a definitive "yes" as yet ...

First I need to see the hospital cardiologist have a couple of tests and get a note from him then take it down to the right department to get partial funding ... all good ... except the cardiologist is only available Wednesday mornings from 8am to 10 am and this coming Wednesday is a holiday of some sort, so we are checked in to see him on the 8th ...

My cardiologist will not be available in May so will probably move forward with the hospital cardiologist. We have scraped up another 10k so the total keeps coming down ...

Well its been a pretty uneventful couple of weeks. Seems I have bad days and not so bad days, but no good days. I was at the cardiologist a couple of days ago, not a good day at all. Was told that the hospital would not enter into a payment agreement ahead of time and required the estimated funds for the procedure to be available. I am having problems going anywhere without extreme effort, just going to the doctor caused an episode. Thank goodness for Nitrolingual spray.

The fund has raised about 140k after fees and we are grateful with all the generosity shown. We have almost 30k in direct donations and with the sale of whatever we could, we are at 220,000 pesos. Only about 147k to go ... there is light at the end of the tunnel. We are waiting for a couple of things to fall into place and feel we are on track to get the Angioplasty done in the second week of May, not long to wait. We have a hospital visit on Monday to sort a few things out but for now take it one day at a time.

Again, a heartfelt thank you for all those who contributed to date, you are all awesome ... your help is making this possible.

Update: My health is stable for the moment, I have constant chest pressure and minor pain most of the time. The pain level increases and decreases throughout the day and evening.

Some of you have asked about actual costs involved so here is what they gave me.

Angioplasty with 3 Stents Quoted Procedure Costs

150,000 php Professional Fees (Team)

20,000 php Procedural Fee

20,000 php Material & Supplies

10,000 php Pharmacy

9,000 php Room Accommodation

148,500 php Coronary Stents x 3

20,515 php Coronary Balloon

10,098 php PCI Guide Catheter

8,976 php PCI Guidewire

397,098 php Sub Total Quote

Less 30,300 php PhilHealth Contribution

366,789 php Total Quote

We might be able to catch a break on the hospital and/or professional fees, we wont know that until it’s happening or just after. Probably in the range of 10 to 30k pesos tops. We were told to prepare 400,000 pesos. The hospital is not willing to admit me unless material and hardware costs are covered in advance. Thats 188,089 pesos minimum up front cost.

My wife and I want to thank those of you, who have contributed so far , you guys are awesome. It means a everything to us … you have our heartfelt thanks …

Lex; dont worry. I got two stents Dec 2000 and all is still fine. I watched the whole thing on the television while the doctor explained and have never been so fascinated.
