Help Syaqir Battle Septecemia

Update posted by Shida Baker On May 09, 2017

Hi everyone. First and foremost, thank you very much for your kind generosity in the donation. Today would mark exactly 1 month Syaqir in ICU. He went through surgery for his right lung 3 days ago and is recovering. His lungs were affected very severely by the bacteria, with multiple holes and air leakage that had caused them to collapse. Doctors can only try to fix on the right side and let it stable before they start to fix on the left side. The fact that he was breathing on his own with those severely damaged lungs is a miracle by its own. This shows just how strong his willpower to get better and of course with your prayers and God's will.

The operated right lung is still leaking fluid and air. Doctor Su Jang Wen said it is still not perfect but still not as bad as before. He said the lung will need about one month to stop leaking, and then he can start to work on the left side. That means estimated another 2 months in ICU. I hate to break the news to Syaqir that he might celebrate Idulfitri in ICU. :( He has been begging for water and food since we moved him to Mount E but all we could give him until yesterday was 20ml of water in tiny sips.

Dr Su told us that Syaqir will require a long term treatment of antibiotics for his lungs and he is worried about the financial burden on us. He said estimated cost now is $1 million.

We cannot give up. We are half way there.

Yesterday, we won the fist battle.

Doctors at Mount E managed to bring down Syaqir's resting heart rate to 74bpm. It had been racing non-stop between 125 - 148 bpm for the last 8 days.

Dr Leong and his team also made many tweaks to Syaqir's treatment. They took him off his blood pressure meds and one high dosage antibiotics which had side effects to his kidneys and substituted it with a better antibiotic.

The intraveneous tube inserted on Syaqir's groin done by the initial hospital was taken out as Dr Leong and his team found a big collection of bacteria sitting on it. A new intravenous tube is inserted through his neck which has better hygiene than the groin.

Many more clinical tweaks were done which I cannot spell all of them out here but all I can say is that Syaqir is in good hands now.

Lastly, we would like to thank all the donors who have contributed to Syaqir's treatment. Yesterday the family managed to put the deposit to the hospital from the donation drive collected. Hospital had been cooperative and asked for a minimal amount instead of the $20K deposit initially requested. We still need to prepare for the final bill upon discharge. Thank you everyone for sharing the post and keeping up with the prayers! God bless all of you.

Syaqir is now safely transferred to Mount Elizabeth Novena after bracing the risk of travel on ambulance with ventilator machine attached.

Xrays of his lungs taken and shown the severity of his lungs affected by the bacteria. Tiny holes were spotted but Doctor Leong is optimistic about his recovery.

After more than 7 days in ICU, this is what we need to hear. A sliver of hope that this child can recover and back to his mother's arms. Please keep him in your prayers.
