At around 6:30pm last night, Manong Ritchie took his last breath. Please include him and our family in your prayers. We appreciate everyone's concern and sympathies, but we would also like to ask for your understanding and empathy by giving us space to process and grieve his loss.
Over the past years, my brother Ritchie, has been in and out of the hospital due to cardiomyopathy and complications arising from his condition. From September of last year to present, he has already been admitted 4 times. Last June 4, he was rushed to Notre Dame Hospital and just last night, he was placed in the Intensive Care Unit due to a sudden drop in his BP and high sugar level in his blood. I was just updated by his doctor that they have intubated him and is now connected to a ventilator due to difficulty in breathing caused by pneumonia and water in his lungs.
My Papa and I are appealing to everyone for your help. Honestly, we have no source of funds to pay for his growing hospital bills. We have already exhausted the loan we applied for, for his 2 admissions and bile duct operation (December and January operations). My Papa is not working and I am currently staring a very small venture, where my small savings is tied in to. Our current running bill is at Php109,000+ and we would greatly appreciate any amount you can share with us in helping my brother recover and get back on his feet. Please include him in your prayers and if you have time, sharing this page will be greatly appreciated.
I'm on my way to Baguio and will be posting updates on this page.
