Hi everyone. I’m Isaac’s mother. Isaac is 19 years old this year. He was diagnosed with brain AVM. He fell into coma since 8th September 2019 around 10pm after he complained of stiff neck and started to perspire. He fell unconscious while on the way to the hospital in Johor Bahru.
The doctors did a CT scan for Isaac and found out there’s blood clot in his head.
After 2 hours there, the doctors said they can’t do anything there because of lack of equipment and doctors, they referred my son to another hospital.
My son stayed in the emergency rooms till the next morning 9.30am and then they transferred him to HDU. At 11am one of the doctors informed me and my husband that our son was brain dead. I was going totally insane. I told the nurses not to pull out any of the support without consent from us, and we won’t give up and will pray for a miracle. Not giving up, on the third day, 10 September 2019, my husband and I decided to send Isaac to Farrer Park Hospital, Singapore for treatment. Isaac went into surgery that night. Brain AVM and blood clot was removed. On 14 September, 2nd operation removed more AVM and more blood clots.
Isaac’s still in ICU and yet to awake.
To date, we have exhausted our cash and savings to settle Isaac's medical fees which we find it hard to sustain.
Tomorrow doctor will do Insertion of right Ventriculoperitoneal shut surgery for Isaac, this is to relieves pressure on the brain by draining extra CSF.
