On October 14, 2017, our grandmother was confined for Pneumonia that took weeks to be diagnosed and treated. Apparently, her fragile state due to old-age had her admitted in the intensive care unit of Silliman University Medical Center. This event had us all in a state of shock. We were not ready to let her go yet. We hope to spend more Christmas with her.
She is a woman of God. Her house was a refuge to anyone who needed love back then. Folks remember her as someone who opened her home to everybody. She gave them food to eat and entertained them while she was teaching her children prayers for the saints and Filipino songs. Since she didn’t have the chance to go to school herself, she had put so much importance on education that it became a habit for her to spend a couple of hours in the evenings and in the mornings for her children to recite to her their lessons in school. She made sure that her kids get to spend time in the church, stroll along the pier, and sometimes a treat to a movie house.
We believe in her. She was, no doubt, a fighter. She was a single parent to six children. She did laundry jobs, worked as a waitress on local eateries and coffee shops, and sold puto and tsokolate to send her kids to school. She showed unwavering support to them even when they all have families of their own. She even took care to some of us, her grandchildren, because our parents had to go find a living. Even at the age of 95, she enjoyed spending time with her great grandchildren.
So we fought. We endure seeing her in the hospital bed. Her children and grandchildren have tried all means possible to cover the expenses but they were just not enough. Despite having settled more than Php 250,000 for the hospital expenses, the bills keep soaring to more than Php 400,000 as of November 2. Her ventilator (Php 1500 per day), cardiac monitor, suction pump, infusion pump and other daily life support amount to more than Php 20,000 per day while her medicines cost another Php 20,000-30,000 per day (bp support medication of three different kinds of vials and mixture, antibiotics, and others). All in all, her hospitalization costs Php 50,000 per day, not including doctor's fee and other medical needs bought outside the hospital.
She loved us all that it hurts so much to think of not being able to reciprocate it now. We fought because we can see she is fighting, too. We appeal for your prayers and financial support to cover the unpaid hospital expenses. Any amount will already be a big help. If possible, we ask you to share this, too. You can also send donations to her eldest son Roberto AU Dangkulos (BPI SA 9359-3781-46).
A visit would also make her feel better. Perhaps, it will be the best days in our busy lives to go back home. Thank you very much and God bless.
