Here is my mother Lolita, 63 years old. She is beautiful, brave, caring and compassionate mother to us. We never imagine that she is now in that situation. It start with a shock that someone like her is sick now and scared us to death that she needs to be in the ICU (in critical condition). We are financially struggling because we are not born financially rich. Last Jan 25, 2020 we went to the hospital which is suppose to be just an iniatial check up for her because she is complaining her throat. But when her internal medicine doctor checked her BP sobrang taas so as per doctor's advised i-confine siya for atleast 2 days. They run several lab tests and found out this so called thyroid nodules. She got discharged after 2 days since normal na ang BP nya. We went to an ENT doctor to check what are these thyroid nodules na nakita, ang sabi nothing to worry and no need for surgery. As the days passed by my mother felt several pain at her lower back, at the left lower side of her shoulder, she start losing her appetite to eat and can not barely talk as well. We decided to bring her back again at the hospital because sobrang weak na niya at namaga na ang left arm nya. At the hospital they run several laboratory tests including 2 CT-scans to see saan nang gagaling ung maga sa braso nya but all the test they run says normal. After 6 days nag pauwi na si Nanay iniisip nya we are running out of funds and no improvement na nangyari. After a week she experienced shortness in breathing that she almost died if we are not abled to bring her to the hospital. I know being her daughter I need to do something, we do not want her to die just like that. We took her to a different hospital this time but our medical expenses are keep on going up everyday. If I need to beg para lang mabuhay siya gagawin ko because we still need her. It breaks our heart to witness her suffering because until now no final diagnosis found. I am here humbly asking for your help and prayers. Help us keep our mother alive she had to be remain in the hospital to get proper treatment. Any amount will do for those people who are willing to help.
Let our FAITH bigger than our FEAR.
