I, Ria Austin, wife of the patient Steve Austin and I am here to ask for you help with regards of my husbands hospital bills.
Steve suffered from Septic Shock which started in small wound. Wound was from the step of his motorcycle. After 3days we travelled to Bacolod City, our province, for family vacation, but during our stay on the ship, he started to have fever. The next day when we will about to get off on the ship, he almost cried as he cant step his feet because of so much pain. When we reach our house in Bacolod, he just ask for a soup but he vomit. After an hour, he poop but suddenly fainted. He fainted 5 times, and on the 5th time we decided to call the ambulance, his blood pressure dropped to 50/20. At first, the battle is all about his blood pressure which dropping down, so the doctor decided to put him at ICU to closely monitor. As per his doctor, Steve suffered septic shock. When he’s already at ICU, that afternoon he wasnt able to breath so the doctors decided to put him a respirator to help him breath. He got heart, lungs and kidney issues as complications of this infection. His heart got congested, he developed pneumonia, kidneys got damaged due to cardiac arrest. So many complications because of this severe infection. Seeing your husband on this situation is a real struggle, knowing that your kids are with you and you should NOT show even feel nor show them that their Mom is weak.
AS of today, Steve is already on his 13th day at ICU. Almost everything is nornal now except for the wound. So today May 13, He undergo debridement. This procedure was done to remove all dead tissues and to clean the wound inside/out. What we are right now is to wait that it will never to produce again another dead tissues. That the procedure will lead to full recovery.
Please I am begging you all to help us. The medicines almost reach 500 thousand. Still no doctors fee. He has 6 attending physician. Running bill now is 1M. We already asked help from our friends and family and the amount they shared was already used to settle some.
In behalf of Steve, thank you so much!!!! Me and my family will be forever grateful.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL..
