Help Rocky with her Kidney Transplant

Update posted by Karlo Lucas On Feb 13, 2019

We are very happy to update everyone that Rocky has been cleared in today's check-up (Infectious Diseases)! However, she will still continue to take ID meds for 9 months - 6 months more to go!

We are a step closer to the procedure.

Next steps:

- Meet with the transplant doctor (19 Feb) to again brief Rocky of the procedure and sign all relevant documents. I will again update this page again on this date. (UPDATE: Meeting has been tentatively moved to 22 Feb)

- A cool-down period is required (around a month), in order for MOH (Ministry of Health) to review Rocky's case (all findings, documents and results). Singapore government wants to make sure that the procedure is by all means legal, that no individual was forced, forged documents, blackmarket transaction was done.

- Once approved by MOH, the procedure can be done ASAP. When it comes to this stage, you'll have daily updates coming from this page.

Again, thank you everyone for all the support and generosity! Thank you for the continuous prayers and contributions! We are forever grateful for the love that you've given to Rocky. Thank you!

Hello again everyone! And thank you for taking time in reading this update.

Again, we would like to thank everyone for thier continous support and generosity! Your prayer intentions and contributions are really appreciated! Thank you!!! We also would like to acknowledge Rocky's friends - who are also campaigning outside of GoGetFunding. We really do appreciate it, Thank you!!!


We concluded 2 appointments today - 1st was Dr. Wong's. So far he's quite contented with the results. He's happy that Rocky's maintaining her health (with the help of dialysis). He also mentioned that "Hopefully, the next time we see each other is that you're already in the Transplant Ward. So I hope ID (Infectious Diseases) gets to clear you."

2nd appointment was with her dietitian. This was more of a follow-up appointment as we want to make sure she eats right. After the discussion, Grace was quite satisfied that Rocky knows what to, what not too eat and how big the portions should be.

Going back to Rocky's more critical check-up - Infectious Diseases. The date is on 13 February. She has been taking medications for 3 months now. This is mostly precautiounary as the doctors want to make sure that she's clear enough to undergo the procedure.

I will update everyone again on 13 February. Hopefully I give everyone a positive update by then. Have a great day everyone! And again, Thank you!!!

Rocky's condition remains positively same - we are in high hopes!

We again would like to thank everyone for their continuous prayer intentions and contributions! We dearly thank you for the support that you've extended us!

We would like to also take this opportunity to thank Rocky's company. Her company has been very, very supportive of her. We can't thank you enough for the care that you're giving her. You really take care of your own.

My next update will coincide with her check-up with Dr. Wong, 8 February. This will be a more comprehensive update that I can give to everyone.

Again, we can't thank everyone enough! THANK YOU!

Hi everyone! I will keep this campaign as updated as possible. This is my way of keeping everyone informed of Rocky's (and in the future, Rochelle's) progress.

1st of all, we would like to thank everyone for their contributions! Our words will never be enough in saying thank you! We really are speechless as the flood of concerns and prayer offerings from family, friends, colleagues and strangers are simply amazing. What we can offer now are thank you prayers. We hope that we can repay your kindness in the future.

We just got back from her dialysis. For now, she only needs 2 sessions (weekly), versus to the normal 3 sessions. We are hopeful that she's able to maintain the session frequency. She does feel weak after each session. The nurses mentioned that this is normal for a person undergoing dialysis. Her sessions are done late afternoon. This allows me to head to the dialysis centre after work, be with her during the session and head home together afterwards.

She does have 2 upcoming check-ups. 1st is with Dr. Wong - her Nephrologist. This is her usual monthly check-up. Dr. Wong is simply one of the most caring and coolest doctor that we have encountered. We are blessed to have Dr. Wong as her specialist! The 2nd check-up however, will be more crucial - this is for Infectious Diseases. The doctors have to screen her from every possible virus so that her chances of any post-Op infection/s is close to none. They had to give her every immunization shot (any that you can think of). The critical date is on 13 Feb. We are hoping that she will be cleared. Once cleared, she's will be 1 step closer for her transplant.

I will close for now as I don't want to make this too long for everyone. I will keep you updated for any progress. And again, we deeply appreciate your continuous support!

Have a blessed day everyone!
