Help Mikkell heal from dengue and the other illnesses brought by the virus

Update posted by Zora Alfanta On Aug 09, 2019

It's been over a week and I apologize that I was not able to to make udpates. I may not be able to cover every single detail but I will make sure to include very important ones.

Bace yourselves for some good news!!

  • In between August 2-10, Mikko is 100% conscious. He was also transferred from the ICU to a private room. There, he was still STRICTLY MONITORED and visitors were still not allowed to enter. This period was very important and it is one of the major steps to his recovery.
  • Since August 2, his heart, brain, colon and blood were slowly recovering. He had 2 sets of blood transfusions to address the drop of his hemoglobin.
  • August 8, his central line, was finally removed!
  • Yesterday, August 9, Mikko's doctors finally signed for him to be discharged!!! However, not 100%.
  • He is discharged but is staying at Perpetual Succour's Hostel because his lungs still has fluids left, his legs are swelling because of liquids and his kidney and liver are still 30% working.

    Although outside the hospital room, he is still strictly monitored.

  • He still has daily doctor visits.
  • His stomach is bloated and he is still a little jaundiced.
  • He has breathing exercises, drawing exercises, and walking exercises. He can start walking for a few minutes before his legs start to tremble due to the lack of strength.
  • He still needs assistance in urinating as he still doesn't have enough strength.
  • His food and water is strictly monitored and maintained.
  • Although he might not have fully recovered and it may sound like he is still going through a lot, Mikko's improvement is highly noticeable.
  • Thank you so much for all your help.

    May it be through prayers or through amounts you think were little for you. They were so much for us and we are eternally grateful for your generosity πŸ™πŸ’•

    Right now, we still cannot thank you one by one but we will in due time. I will be posting the expenses real soon along with receipts. I'm having a hard time finding time because I also have a job to attend to.

    Thoughts, prayers and little amounts are still accepted. πŸ’•βœ¨

    All our hearts,

    Zora (partner), Cory (mom), Glen (dad), and Mikko himself πŸ’–

    First of all, I'd like to apologize for the delay. I have been busy with personal stuff for the past few days and I needed rest. I hope you all understand. πŸ€—



  • Still in ICU. Was on for approval to be moved to a private room but he suddenly had a 38Β° fever. ☹️
  • Assisted with oxygen again due to the fever.
  • Possible pneumonia.
  • Central line was taken off last 7/30/19 but was re-inserted on his neck at dawn of 8/1/19 ☹️
  • Doctors addressed his fever. He is free from fever since 8/1/19 after ther re-inserting of his central line.
  • But he is eating well and is fighting. ☺️
  • Still in need of financial help.


    Thank you so much to each and every one of you for your generosity. πŸ’“ God bless you all πŸ™πŸ’–


    Let us continue praying for his healing and protection today and everyday in Jesus' name. Amen. πŸ’žπŸ™βœ¨

  • Mikkell still in ICU.
  • Central Line removed.
  • First time eating solid food apart from rice porridge. He ate 1 cup rice and grilled chicken (one of his favorites) as a treat.
  • He can also start holding his own glass now but still drinks with a straw.
  • Very responsive. Began talking more and with more energy. In fact, he starts making jokes.
  • Ultrasound revealed no damage to the liver but the doctor deems it necessary to monitor the liver considering bilirubin level at 18.9 which is above normal.
  • Still jaundiced but is not much of a problem as the doctor said it will take a few days for his yellow skin tone to start going back to normal.
  • Had an ECG earlier today.
  • Scheduled for an EEG tomorrow to check if there are problems in the electrical activity of his brain and to determine medications that can be stopped and maintained as soon as he will be transferred to a regular room.

    PRAYERS and FINANCIAL SUPPORT still needed.
  • Let us continue praying for his healing and protection today and everyday in Jesus' name. Amen. πŸ’žπŸ™βœ¨

  • Mikko’s Platelet is 95k (up from lowest drop at 6k.)
  • Note: Transfusions were done only until Mikko went up to 25k, when transfusions were stopped after he started seizing. This would mean Mikko’s immune system took over after 25k onwards. (Target: @ least 140k).

  • Mikko is still jaundiced.
  • Medications for liver still ongoing.
  • IV meds for both viral and bacterial infections still ongoing.
  • Urine output has greatly improved.
  • The endotracheal tube (ET) was removed today around 5pm. Mikko is now breathing on his own.
  • Naso-gastric Tube (NGT) is still continued.
  • Blood Tests: Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) and Complete Blood Count (CBC) as well as Chest X-ray are scheduled tomorrow.
  • Mikko is now conscious and starting to recognize familiar faces and even waves back at people.
  • Thank you so much for everyone who helped financially and who prayed for his fast recovery. We cannot thank you one by one right now but know that we will be forever grateful for you and your families πŸ™β€οΈβœ¨

    Mikko's lungs are clear from the fluids.

    Platelet count is still at 75k.

    He is still given medication for the liver to address the jaundice.

    No latest stool exam yet.

    From Mikko's controlled breathing with the ventilator, they will try to remove the ventilator tomorrow so that he can start to breathe on his own.

    In due time, NGT will be removed.

    He is continuously very responsive. ☺️

    Let us continue to pray for Mikko's complete healing and protection today and everyday in Jesus' name. Amen.

    We are heartily thankful for everyone's generosity financially and through prayers. God bless πŸ™β€οΈβœ¨

    Good news!!

    Mikko is conscious. In fact, he can recognize us, smile at us and even wave at us. He is such a fighter ❀️

    He is asked to start breathing independently still with the help of the machine but he is encouraged to breath by his own breathing pace.

    He is improving very well πŸ’–

    Thank you so much for your concern, help and even prayers πŸ™πŸ’– We humbly ask you to pray with us for his speedy recovery πŸ’–πŸ™βœ¨

    Hi! We are currently busy taking note of offline donations as it is not as easy as the online procedure.


    My PayPal account is on hold due to the sudden surge of money in the span of 24 hours. PayPal found it malicious and is putting my account on hold for 24-48 hours for them to check and verify the numbers.


    We thank you so much from the very bottom of our hearts for your generosity. πŸ’ž


    So far, we have cashed out an amount for his medications yesterday.


    We will post receipts as soon as we can. Right now, we are prioritizing his condition. We take a lot of time buying his medications from different pharmacies and we are spending most of our time praying together.πŸ™


    Again, we thank you for your generosity and we know that God will be showering you and your families so many blessings in the future. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–


    Love,

    Zora Alfanta

    Mikkell's partner ❀️

    Dear Corrie , I'm not sure if you still remember me. Just want to let you know I've been praying for your son's healing and recovery. And will request our life groups at the church to include your son in the prayer petitions. To give you enough strength to deal this kind of trials. I do believed in miracles because I myself is a living miracle after undergone/survived two (2 ) massive brain tumor surgeries. Thanks God , He gave me 3rd life. Take care and God bless you and your family. With prayers, Yanyan de los Reyes
